Justin Timberlake & Jay Z

This One's for Trayvon Martin

7/20/2013 8:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Justin Timberlake
and Jay Z honored Trayvon Martin Friday night ... dedicating the song "Forever Young" to the 17-year-old shooting victim.

Jay and Justin kicked off their "Legends of the Summer" tour this week -- and during their closing number Yankee Stadium in NYC -Jay shouted to the audience, "Everybody put a cell phone and light it up ... let's light the sky for Trayvon Martin tonight in here."

Beyonce also dedicated a song to Trayvon ... shortly after George Zimmerman's not guilty verdict last weekend.

This second post was edited to clear the TMZ filter.


The hard Left Liberal media got out in front of the Trayvon Martin & George Zimmerman murder case and pitched to America what they wanted to sell America. They showed a picture of a sweet innocent 12 year old boy. They edited George Zimmerman’s 911 call to sound as though he was a racist. They neglected to tell America about Martin’s Twitter account @NO_LIMIT_N_I_G_G_A and his racist tweets. They didn’t tell America that there were four minutes from the moment Zimmerman reported to a police dispatcher that Martin was “running” to the moment when a resident called 911 to report a fight in progress. They didn’t tell America that in those four minutes when Trayvon Martin could have been safe at home he decided to circle back and viciously attack George Zimmerman. It’s tragic that Trayvon Martin lost his life! It’s also tragic what the hard Left Liberal media did to paint George Zimmerman as a gun toting racist

If Black Americans want to talk then get off the Trayvon Martin verdict and lets discuss BLACK CRIME period. You are wanting to cry about one case and ignore the TOTAL problem of Black America's Worship of Gangsters and the Gangster Lifestyle. You want people(including many Blacks) to not Stereotype or Profile black youth then raise your children to be more than THUGS in training. To put MLK Jr.'s name anywhere near these rallies is just disgraceful. Dr. King would be calling out the American Blacks for having a 66.1% national high school graduation rate. If American Blacks really want to talk then get past perceived racism in the Trayvon Martin case and get your youth to DRESS to Impress and for Success instead for DRESSING to Intimidate and Nauseate. Lets discuss ways to get American Black males to care about EDUCATION and its power instead of finding Power through fear and intimidation by acting like a Gang member. To think that hiding behind the Martin case is a way to get race relations moving forward is past ridiculous.

I am sooo tired of hearing tributes to Trayvon Martin. Let's not forget that this is the same violent hood rat that every one of these celebrities would make cross the street if they saw him walking their direction. He attacked somebody, and he got shot in the process, saving taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars on future prosecutions and prison sentences. Good riddance.

common sense    

why is everyone honoring this juvie?? he was thrown out of school, did MJ, his parents are divorced and they REFUSE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR DISCIPLINING TRAYVON.

Get over it people. A jury spoke. Quit playing the race card. We are sick of it.
