Jay-Z and Beyonce attended a rally in NYC over the weekend to honor Trayvon Martin.
The power couple peacefully protested on Saturday with Martin’s mom, Sybrina Fulton, and Al Sharpton who acknowledged Jay and Bey as “two of the baddest artists of all time.”
Mr. and Mrs. Carter chose to not speak, but Sharpton did share with the crowd the couple’s thoughts on the death of 17-year-old Martin. “Jay-Z told me, ‘I’m a father. Beyoncé is a mother.’ We all feel the pain and apprehension—the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn’t protect anybody. We do not come from hate, we come from love of children,” Al explained to the crowd.
“We’re going to make sure there is an aggressive civil rights investigation … We are trying to get justice, not get something off our chests,” Sharpton added.
