H&M Posts Tone Deaf Apology For Ad Of Black Child Wearing A Monkey Hoodie
H&M issues a tone deaf apology for the offensive ad of a young black child wearing a monkey hoodie. Get the scoop.
H&M Addresses Offensive Ad
H&M is getting dragged to the depths of social media hell for an ad in their online U.K. store, which features a young black boy wearing a hoodie that reads, “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle.”
As you can imagine, the outrage was real and many have called for a boycott of the popular clothing brand.
To add insult to injury, H&M issued the most tone deaf apology ever by apologizing for the printed hoodie top…not for the putting said hoodie on a black child.
Shame on the child’s parents for allowing him to model this hoodie.
This is the best response I’ve seen to H&M’s ignorance:
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 has been canceled.
