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."

Typical. The Carter´s are only involved because this is getting so much publicity. I despise them more and more every day.The young black men that were burglarizing the neighborhood where Trayvon was shot started this whole thing and nothing is being said about that. It´s all about this ¨innocent¨ little thug. He does not deserve the attention and defense.

The jury has spoken! Our justice system works the way it is supposed to. based on EVIDENCE!!!! All these protest organizers including Jay-Z, Beyonce and Al Sharpton should stop inciting people. They were not there. The all just looking to open their mouths for nothing but attention. They should all just SHUT UP!

This case was NOT a stand your ground case. It was never used, said, spoken or claimed. This just makes blacks look stupid. Pick a real legit reason and then protest.

Well they tried to stir up an Occupy Wall Street communist overthrow in NYC and that sort of fizzled out. Now they are trying to stir up an angry black communist overthrow. So far they have blocked traffic and agitated people with yelling and whining sermons on fictitious injustices

NYC has had two republican mayors lately. I think they are just in a prosperity mood and not into the old liberal whining and crying mood that the protestors excel at creating.. I don't think people want to hear it or deal with the prima donna emo babies any more.

There are a lot of people who come to NYC to work hard and make something of their lives. If a band of crazed anarchist protestors started smashing and damaging things or harassing their customers, I think there would be a lot of fury unleashed back.

These two are a disgrace to the United States - the jury has spoken - he is not guilty - let it go already. If Zimmerman had been black and Martin White - this would have been a non-issue - this **** goes on everyday - it wasn't like he was an upstanding member of society. He didn't deserve to die - but it has gone too far at this point. As for Beyonce' and JZ - I can't stand either one of these hypocrites.

A) Guarantee that neither Jay or B watched the trial from start to finish. If they did, they would realize that the jury was right in acquitting GZ.

B) TMZ, Stand Your Ground did not play a role in acquitting GZ. It was never brought up in trial because this case was classic self-defense (not Stand Your Ground).
