After a series of tweets the media is trying to figure out if one of the entertainment’s most influential couples is finally weighing in on the Baltimore protests.
Just last week media outlets reported thatÂ Allen Bullock’s $500,000 bail had mysteriously been paid by an anonymous donor. The 18-year-old maintenance worked who became a symbol of the Baltimore protests after smashing the windshield of a police cruiser with a traffic cone,Â was released from jail.
TV ONE reported that after encouraging him to turn himself in, Bullockâ€™s family was unable to pay the $500,000 bail, which was nearly twice as high than that of the six Baltimore officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray.
Jay Z and BeyoncÃ© have reportedly been giving behind-the-scenes support to protesters in Baltimore, Maryland and Ferguson, Missouri.
Dream Hampton, a social activist and writer who contributed to Jay Zâ€™s book, sent out a series of tweets Sunday.
She says the couple helped bail out people who were arrested while protesting the deaths of Michael Brown and Freddie Grey.
Hampton says the couple contributed tens of thousands of dollars, and never asked for anything in return.
She has since deleted the posts, but says she still stands by her claims.
Complex magazine shared screen shots of Dream Hampton’s tweets before they were deleted.
These reports would certainly be welcome news to the couple’s fans, many of whom have been critical of the two stars on social media for a perceived lack on involvement in the national conversation about police brutality.
