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."

these celebrities weren't there, they don't know what went on, but, like sharpton, enjoy fanning the flames of racism that didn't exist before this. Shame on them and shame on their blatant ignorance!

I was wondering how long it'd take these two attention whores to weigh in.

If GZ were black and TM was Hispanic,Al and Jessie would be having rallies for GZ,saying that the justice not have a right to set up a hot line for people to call in if they have any dirt on GZ.The justice dept. would not be in the picture and it would be over.Hispanics need to take a hard look in 2014 & 2016 on who to vote for.Obama just spit in your face and could care less about you.

Please tell your kids that if someone is following them to call 911, run, and scream. Why confront a stranger?

Quick do something to take the attention of what a horrible president we have.
It is all smoke an mirrors. All the people at these protests are nothing but pawns. The mid-term elections will be here before you know it. This is just a dress rehearsal for next year when they start blaming Republicans for everything.

Great point. But sadly the people involved in these rallies aren't too bright. Sadly this boy was misguided and the media ate the story the race baiters fed them.
I am surprised no one has brought up the fact he had 2 of the 3 ingredients (Skittles and arizona watermelon drink) needed to make lean / purple drank. The 3rd ingredient being codeine, which Tray was on facebook looking for a year before he passed.

Using this for a year would cause all sorts of brain issues (look at lil wayne and the seizures) which would include being irrational and paranoid as all hell. Hell looking at his autopsy they said there was severe swelling. This would be one of the many side effects.

This is just a a photo-op for these two clowns.

They seem to have developed a way to have their pictures taken (no quotes, just pics) for all kinds of page 1 newstories where politicians feel the need to chime in to make sure the stay relevant.

They don't give a crap about Martin. Figured that out as soon as I noticed Sharpton, the head clown in the picture.

"Protest laws that allowed his killer to walk"
You IDIOTS, they did NOT use stand your law ground for one.
For two, they used the basic 'Self Defense' law.
So, you going to protest 'Self Defense'????
None of these ninnies are looking at 'FACTS'
What a bunch of 'IGNORANT' A-Holes!
How embarrassing for them.

Get over it! These protests are not going to change the jury's verdict (you know the 6 people who heard the evidence and made a decision based on the evidence.) There should be demonstrations against the nightly killings of youth in many cities. They belong to someone also. Jay-Z and wife are only interested in these youth purchasing their albums. The country is becoming more polarized. Blacks are not the only minority group in America. The Hispanics form a very large group and so the Asians.
