Jay Z & Beyonce

Protest In NYC

With Trayvon Martin's Mom

7/20/2013 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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 much misinformation everywhere and we can start with TMZ. Stand your ground was not used as a defense in the Zimmerman case only self defense. Maybe stand your ground statutes lead to more crimes BUT IT WAS NOT A FACTOR HERE.

I can live with the verdict, but what's scary to me is the people all over the country CELEBRATING it. Regardless of what you might have thought regarding what really happened that day, a kid is still dead. You got what you wanted, GZ is free, why do you need to rub it in everyone's faces?
IMO, this case sets a very dangerous precedent moving forward. What about people bringing guns to bar fights, etc? Verdict doesn't change the fact that GZ is a huge p***y. Don't start a fight you can't win. What an absolute loser.

Oh please sit your a**es down Beyonce and Jay. You just want to make sure that your in good standing with black community. This whole thing is about some people's personal agendas. Beyonce and Jay are looking for to protect their future sales. Sharpton gets money for stirring these types of protests going. You see he is only a Reverend. How does a rev. pay for custom suits, live in a posh place in NYC, and send his kids to elite private schools. As for our irresponsible black president where do I start. He knew that this is a very volatile situation but he went there. What's interesting is is after his stupid statement he boarded his plane with his family in tow and headed to Martha's Vineyard(where the elite white folk hang and the same folk that got him elected). I would just like an honest answer from Jay, Beyonce, Sharpton, and Obama: would they let there kids hang with the likes of Trayvon. Do they know why Trayvon was there: he was sent to his father's because he was suspended from school yet once again. Interesting how they don't comlain when law worked in their favor because they were able to hide Trayvon's criminal record under the "juvie law". Why aren't these idiots commenting on the deaths of 50 black on black murders that occurred the same day Trayvon was killed in our country. So This is all about certain people's agendas-whatever that may be.

These morons are NOT looking at FACTS.
Since the shooting, 'HUNDREDS' of black kids have been shot in Chicago, and not in self defense. What about THOSE children in the black areas huh?
Your all morons.

All the protest rallies in the world cannot cover the LACK OF Mom and Dad NOT GIVEN to there suspended son, Dad should have left his girlfriend to spend that time with a SON THAT NEEDED ATTENTION,Also Trayvon had on his person a cell phone,if he was a scared teenager why not dial 911,neighter did his friend who told Trayvon it could be a rapist.,what kind of friend does not bother to dial 911,which by the way,could have saved Trayvons life,for the police would have explained GZ CALL.Trying to make a victum out of TRAYVON AND A CELEBRITY OUT OF RACHEL.neither had the brains to dial 911 unless the full intention WAS LOOKING FOR TROUBLE

I think all white people should stop buying Beonce and Jay Z's music. They should stop going to their concerts. Complain to Loreal and Pepsi that you won't buy their products unless Beyonce is off their ads. Let me tell you, those 2 would so quickly change their tune. I want to see if they let Blue hang with guys like Trayvon or guys like her drug dealin father.

All they know is the garbage that Rev. Al has been shouting. They are fools.

the justice system is to render justice based on evidence in a court room.not to render justice based on what a few news outlets and a lynch mob wants.

BB not bb

Here is some real Zimmerman verdict protest footage from Crenshaw L A. People are being stomped and kicked while sitting on a bench waiting for a bus in broad daylight. People are going to the mall and turning over potted plants and throwing the pots around. They are going in stores and beating up the customers.

And the police are where? And the black leaders are where? And the mayor is where? And the entertainers are asking for more of this????

At least Ted Nugent came out and said it was wrong to protest over this. Do any black celebrities care enough to tell these people to knock it off????

Jay Z and Bey did not sit in the trail and view evidence. So they are ignorant to their protest. Sorry, but true.

Big Momma    

most people who try to look at the trial objectively, facts presented in trial, believe the outcome was right. the prosecution did NOT prove their case. sad and sorry for the family of trayvon, but they are the ones that have made this a race issue. based on the trial details, nothing to do but say Zimmerman was not guilty. jay z and beyounce do nothing but fuel the race card.
