(The Huffington Post) — Writer and social justice activist Dream Hampton took to Twitter on Sunday to give credit to Jay-Z and Beyonce for bailing out protesters in Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri.

Hampton, who co-wrote Jay-Z’s memoir, Decoded, sent a flurry of tweets claiming the rap mogul “wired tens of thousands [of dollars] in minutes” after she asked him to help with expenses protesters incurred while demonstrating against police brutality.

She also said the Carters helped grow the Black Lives Matter organization by writing “a huge check.” She said Jay-Z and Beyonce insist on keeping their contributions quiet.
