H&M's Racist Advertising Fail
You will get called out with the quickness on it by Black People across the African Diaspora
Obviously there wasn't a Black person in the room when the Swedish headquartered H&M approved this ad that has a Black kid modeling a green hooded sweatshirt with the words 'Coolest monkey in the jungle' emblazoned on it.
I'll wait for you to come up with an excuse. An accident? Accident my azz/.
As for those of you wondering why me and of Black people are going off about this, it's because of Black people for centuries have been called monkeys. White people have been using that racist characterization of us to oppress, denigrate and dehumanize our community.
Yes, you have apologized for it, but it still doesn't change the fact you cluelessly (or willfully) did it
