Jay Z & Beyonce donated thousands of dollars to bail out protestors

She deleted original tweets with the news that also mentioned that Jay and Bey insisted that their donations were kept secret. I trust all of this honestly, and it’s cool that Jay and Bey were donating out of the goodness of their heart. More tidbits via Huff Post.
