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."

So wait.. He's against Stand Your Ground but certainly his bodyguards have guns to protect him, his wife and child. Hypocrite. 99 problems and Trayvon ain't one.

Why isn't the media reporting on the black man who killed an Hispanic male clerk and kidnapped and murdered a white female manager at a Dollar Store in Dearborn MI this past Monday? He was caught on video entering the store wearing a HOODIE and is still on the loose.

alot of you all dont choose and pick which facts to focus on. yea trayvon got suspended. he smoked weed too. thats not a reason for him to be murdered for walking home. dont mention trayvon as a thug but omit zimmermans past. how is it that NOBODY mentions zimmermans domestic abuse charge? or him laughing at the woman who pressed charges on myspace after he beat that case too

Wow will this story ever end? He's not the first black kid killed and he won't be the last. Who speaks for all the truly innocent ones? This whole thing is a PR circus.

I just look at that photo of the four of them, and I think, "omg we're doomed." That's what passes for leadership these days?

This was not a protest. I was there. It was a peaceful rally. Everyone accepts the verdict. They are trying to move on from it and bring some good from this case.

My god these comments are despicable. You keep complaining about Al Sharpton, well you guys keep him in business! You're all RACIST! Calling Trayvon a thug who deserved to die? How dare you! No wonder there are so many racial issues in this country. It's from people like all of you!

The link to the rally pics opens to another topic. None of the racist folks commenting have mentioned it, likely they didn't try to look. Also, people are changing the like/hate numbers. TMZ, get on the ball. A professional news website should not have these gaffs.

I live in Chicago and the shootings and violence has gotten out of control. Yesterday a six year old girl was shot in a drive by shooting while standing in front of her house. She is fighting for her life, and I just saw her parents interviewed on the news, they are devastated. I wish that Al Sharpten and other leaders or celebreties could come to Chicago and see what they can do to help stop all this violence. I feel badly about what happened to Trayvon Martin, but the case was tried and Zimmerman was found not guilty.

Kanye West is biggest racist.
Doesn't like white people.
Look at his behavior.
Gets away with it because he's a celebrity.

What a bunch of hypocritical, attention grabbing, spotlight seeking fools. The jury has followed the law and spoken. These fools will never make money off my back. Plus their musiic sucks. Why didn't they all get off their asses and protest when OJ was set free?? Thousands of black on black kids killed and you never hear from any of them. All phonies!! Sharp ton and Jackson should get a real job and get off the us govt payroll!!

CHICAGO (STMW) – Two men have been killed and at least another eight people — including a 6-year-old girl — have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday night.

Wonder when they are gonna hold a protest over occurrences like this that happen continually in Chicago. Oh wait, it's mostly black on black race-baiters have no interest in that.
