However, lobbyists fighting for democracy in Cuba have branded the pair "insensitive" for choosing the Caribbean nation for a celebration, despite decades of reported human rights violations.

Mauricio Claver-Carone, a director for The US-Cuba Democracy PAC, tells TMZ.com, "There are women getting beaten on a daily basis, women who are being jailed for no reason... people are fighting for their freedom. It's extremely insensitive."
U.S. citizens like Beyoncé and Jay-Z are technically prohibited from flying to Cuba for tourism, and must obtain special travel licenses from the American government. A source tells Reuters the pair was invited by officials for Cuba's tourism ministry.
