The royal couple of the music industry always gets dissed for not using their dough on social action. People just think that they like to keep their swag to themselves. Well, they can talk all they want.

Recently, filmmaker and cultural critic Dream Hampton spilled the beans on Beyonce and Jay’s sympathetic endeavours. According to Dazed Digital, her now-deleted tweets stated: "I am going to tweet this and I don't care if Jay gets mad", hampton begins. "When we needed money for bail for Baltimore protesters, I asked hit Jay up, as I had for Ferguson, wired tens of thousands in mins." Hampton also mentioned that the Carters donated “more stuff, too much to list actually, that they always insist folk keep quiet.” These types of hush-hush charity works have been around for quite some time: Jay Z set up the Shawn Carter Foundation in 2003, and he also pressed for criminal justice reform in 2014.
Now we know that they’ve got fans for all the right reasons.
