Jay Z and Beyonce Cuba Visit Controversy

Celebrity Couple Jay-Z and Beyonce decided to visit the Island of Cuba this week to celebrate their fifth wedding anniversary, however J and B wouldn’t be J and B unless there was some disapproval over their behavior.

Although most of the island’s inhabitants were excited by the visit of the A-Listers, several Cuban rights groups have criticized the couple due to Cuba’s continuing controversial communist and anti – human rights practices.

Maurico Claver Cavone, director of PAC, a political group lobbying for increased Democratic Rights in Cuba said” I’m disappointed that these “superstars” have chosen to holiday in a country where women are beaten and jailed for no good reason, people are fighting for their freedom every day. It’s extremely insensitive.”

U.S Citizens are technically banned from travelling to the island for tourism, while there is no suggestion that Jay and Bey have broken the law. Radio Personality Ninoska Perez added “It’s sad to see the callous side of these individuals who vacation in a country where there is no respect for human rights and huge discrimination against blacks, not to mention that U.S LAW bans their citizens from Cuba for Tourism, I hope Beyonce and Jay-Z are not above the Law”. www.metro.us
