Edward Hall III

aka, the Trustafarian

Edward T. Hall III embodies the right-wing stereotype that Occupy Wall Street is occupied, primarily, with rich and ignorant young people. Hall became a caricature when a video of his manic rant in the middle of an OWS protest hit the Internet. The New York Times also caught up with Hall and organized a so-called Soft Drink Summit between the 25-year-old with “a small trust fund” and a stock broker. Hall first gained notoriety in February when he jumped onto a baggage carousel at JFK Airport, ostensibly to get on a plane en route to a girlfriend in San Francisco. Hall III is the grandson of Edward T. Hall, a pioneering anthropologist.
