VAL: H&M Apologizes For Racist Ad

posted by Val Santos -

I cannot even believe this was a thing! H&M came out with a hoodie modeled by a black kid that says "Coolest Monkey In The Jungle". 

I mean....WTF!?

Many people, including celebrities were outraged! Even The Weeknd says he will no longer be working with the company. 

🙏🏾 #Repost @mrchrisclassic (@get_repost) ・・・ I made this because I dont wanna see this young Kings face anymore with the shirt he was hired to wear by H&M. I'm almost certain the Persson Family and their $31 Billion wont care in Sweden but... this lil guy will see his pics and the mockery one day because the internet doesnt erase... so I just hope he gets to see this one or any like it that celebrate him. #mysavoirfaire

H&M  is now issuing an apology. Do you think you will boycott the clothing store?
