Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Cuba trip sparks questions over US trade embargo

Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Cuba trip sparks questions over US trade embargo

Hip-hop power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce have come under fire recently after it was reported they were celebrating their fifth anniversary in Havana.

“There are women getting beaten on a daily basis, women who are being jailed for no reason,” Mauricio Claver-Carone, the D.C. director for the U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC, told TMZ. “People are fighting for their freedom. It’s extremely insensitive.”

Reps. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart, Florida Republicans, sent a letter to the director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control at the Treasury Department, inquiring how it is possible the high-profile couple was allowed to visit the country, seeing that it’s been illegal for U.S. citizens to travel to Cuba solely for tourism.

“We would like to respectfully request, within all applicable rules and guidelines, information regarding the type of license that Beyonce and Jay-Z received, for what purpose, and who approved such travel,” the letter reads.

Calls for comment by Beyonce and Jay-Z have not been returned, TMZ reports.
