Jay Z & Beyonce

Protest In NYC

With Trayvon Martin's Mom

breaking news

Jay Z and Beyonce have made it clear -- they believe justice was NOT served in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin ... they spent Saturday protesting the laws which allowed his killer to walk.

Photos of the superstar couple showed up on Instagram ... of Jay and Bey in NYC, protesting against "Stand Your Ground" laws ... the law in FL which allowed George Zimmerman to claim self-defense in the shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon.

J & B were seen posing with Trayvon's mother, Sybrina Fulton, and Al Sharpton. Al reportedly told the crowd of protesters the famous couple was there ... but didn't want to speak and didn't come for a photo op.

As TMZ previously reported ... both Beyonce and Jay have taken time out of recent performances to honor Trayvon. And last week, Beyonce tagged a photo on Instagram "JusticeForTrayvon."

The majority of these comments are so sickening. For anyone to think it was okay for that fat, ugly ass, underachieving **** Ugly Zimmerman to follow a child down the street, physically accost him and then shoot him in the heart when his sorry ass was getting his ass kicked. Lets hope no one follows you, your mother, sister, or child and then kills them. Then you'll feel the pain of Treyvon's parents and of every person whose a victim of a senseless death and crime.

Why is it GZ followed TM because he was Black instead of TM attacked GZ because he thought he was White?? TM was the only one who used a racial slur and yet GZ's rights are still being trampled on. He is being investigated for a race crime when there is absolutely no evidence to suggest it was anything but self defense.

I am sick of black people pulling the race card. Yes I said black not African American..if you are born here you are American period. color should be secondary , however it is not. The race card is ALWAYS raised by blacks. The case was not about race. There are so many other other crimes committed that do not get media attention. The majority don't cry race , they go by facts... Too bad even the President played the race card in this case..

What beyonce and JayZ want to do is, watch the first 48 show and take a good look at why GZ feared for his community. They have tons of bodyguards, so they need to STFU and feed and educate their nation! Do something with their money other than yacht rides and plane trips! False pretenders and opportunist.

Didn't Jay Z used to sell drugs? Who gives a f**k what he and his wanna-be-white wife think? Martin was a play banger and couldn't cut it. His ass should've been in HIS OWN school and he'd probably still be alive. His parents should've spent as much time raising him as they have have spent on their media tour.

I guess the protesting will end when the black community finally find something else to occupy themselves with, like a job...... Oh, on second thought, I guess the protesting will never end

I did watch the WHOLE trial and i believe me the DA threw this one. He let Zimmerman's lawyer lead the witnesses to get their answers. As far as Z's face and head ummm could be when he shot Trayvon that Trayvon fell forward and landed on *******s face and gave him the bloody nose. Dr said no broken nose. Sad very sad.
