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."

So if he was found guilty and people were mad and complained about the laws they would say shut up sit down the jury spoke. But he was found innocent so the jury got it wrong and no one should support him. It's insane.

You know Beyonce and Jay-Z are in the sunset of their careers when they resort to political race-bating in order to stay relevant within their own community. At the peak of their careers, they probably would've never done this type of thing. First they made idiots of themselves promoting their Cuba visit, now this stupid move. I'll never support any of their projects with my dime.

If these BOZOS really cared about black youths being oppressed, they'd be volunteering their time and trying to improve schools in urban areas.
This has nothing to do w Trayvon and everything to do with media whoring.

When will the media start talking about how violent Trayvon was? About his history of violence, his suspension from school, his alleged drug use and gang activities, his own mother kicking him out of the house, and him beating the **** out of Zimmerman when he got shot? If people start talking about THAT, then Martin's parents will look like the media-hogging whores they really are and Jay-Z and Beyonce will end up looking like a couple of clueless, knee-jerk racists.

On the one hand it's good to see them show support, but it's kind of weird..Rappers are the ones young boys lie Trayvon use as their role models to where threatening attire and cultivate aggressive behavior. We live in a country where that looks menacing just as menacing as a white guy wearing a swastika and KKK garb. If rappers make videos promoting being angry and being aggressive in the real world tragic consequences will result. Zimmerman was an ignorant who believed what he saw was who Trayvon is and the jury validated his pov.

They are disgusting! Why do they only think the system works when a white person is convicted! There was a trial. How do we not know that Trayvon's parents did not teach him to be soo suspicious of white people that he over reacted, as did Zimmerman for the same reason. You are doing nothing but adding to the problems between races. You should both be ashamed of yourselves.
