Fox News has been attacking Beyonce and Jay-Z for their vacation to Cuba (video below), even though Latino.FoxNews.com and FoxNews.com promote trips to Cuba.

Under current U.S. law, an American citizen can obtain a "people-to-people" license from the Treasury Department and travel to Cuba, which is what Jay-Z and Beyonce did when they spent their anniversary in Havana, reports Reuters.

However, Fox & Friends slammed their trip anyway, as noted by MediaMatters.org.

"The trip appears to be just a vacation going against a 51-year travel embargo," co-host Gretchen Carlson claimed.

"Why would they spend money in a place where Cubans are being beaten and arrested for disagreeing with the Castros and the government?" asked co-host Steve Doocy.

On Fox News' 'The Five,' the co-hosts also criticized the couple for traveling to Cuba in equally clueless fashion (video below).
