*Jay Z and Beyonce are making it clear that they are down with Trayvon.
The entertainment power couple spent Saturday protesting the Florida law which allowed his killer, George Zimmerman, to win an acquittal.
Instagram pics show Bey & Jay in NYC Saturday protesting against “Stand Your Ground” laws … they were seen posing with Trayvon’s mother, Sybrina Fulton, and Rev. Al Sharpton (above).
Wearing a shirt with the image of her son in a hoodie, Sybrina Fulton, warned a crowd at a pre-rally at the National Action Nework in Harlem: “It was my son [that night.] It might be yours tomorrow.”
She vowed to fight for children and victims of gun violence.
It’s been a week since a Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman of murder and manslaughter charges. He shot Martin dead on February 26, 2012, while on neighborhood patrol.
The verdict has sparked fury over racial profiling, civil rights and self-defense issues.
Martin, a black teen, had been walking through the Sanford neighborhood with Skittles in his pocket.
“Trayvon was no burglar,” his mom said.
“George Zimmerman started the fight and George Zimmerman ended the fight,” she said.
“My son died without knowing who killed him. He died without knowing who his murdered was.”
As we’ve reported, both Beyonce and Jay have taken time out of recent performances to honor Trayvon.
The New York demonstration was part of rallies organized by Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) that happened in 100 cities across the country on Saturday.
