Mom of the Boy Featured in H&M's Controversial Ad Speaks Out

Man U star striker Lukaku hits back at H&M racist hoodie

Artists hit back at H&M's cringey as hell 'Coolest Monkey' hoodie with rad artworks

The celebrity went as far as cutting his ties with the brand over the matter.

The Swedish brand received serious flak for this, following which the company released a statement, "We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image".

She wrote: "Stop crying wolf all the time".

The clothing retailer often demonstrates that it undertakes corporate responsibility activity and works hard to convey a socially responsible message, but the latest "Jungle Monkey" ad displayed an extreme lack of oversight, reputational expert Nir Kossovsky told Benzinga.

The word "monkey" and "monkey chants" have been used in recent racist attacks - fans of football teams Roma and Spartak Moscow were investigated by Fifa after they directed them at black players during games in October 2017.

She said: 'How can you fight racism if you make racist remarks?,' she said. "You can not try to defend my son and use the same words to describe me".

Students around campus also could not believe H&M, a store very native to Penn State, had published such a controversial picture on its website.

Within hours of the image gaining attention, H&M took the decision to remove it from its United Kingdom and U.S. websites and "all other channels".

Iran allegedly blocks Instagram, Telegram
While authorities ban social media websites like Facebook and Twitter and censor others, Telegram users can say almost anything. Durov said that channels that promote violence will be closed regardless of the political affiliations that they stand for.

Since the rise in reaction, the photos have been taken down.

"We understand that many people are upset about the image of the children's hoodie". It is a shame that this young child is being brought into this conversation since he did not make this choice for himself, but serves as a reminder that companies, like H&M, need to make a bigger commitment to having diversity behind the scenes and not just with models. "We spoke to them and they said it wasn't meant to be racist".

Taking to Instagram, the rapper explained while he was initially excited about his new partnership with the H&M clothing line, that quickly changed once he saw the aforementioned advertisement that stirred quite the controversy.

"Over the past months I was genuinely excited about launching my upcoming line and collaboration with H&M", the rapper wrote. If you enjoy shopping for Ladies fashion, Men's fashion, or Teenage fashion then look around our site and enjoy!.

National Basketball Association star LeBron James, rapper Diddy and other artists have also responded with outrage to the image.

'Enough about y'all and more of what I see when I look at this photo. "I see a Young King", said LeBron James in a very passionate Instagram post. "The ruler of the world, an untouchable Force that can never be denied!" The monkey imagery and all other kinds of derogatory references like it continue to be a problem in our contemporary society, harking back to the days when we at large saw nothing wrong with owning people and exchanging them as property, commodities of the colonial endeavour. The image showed a version of the boy with a crown on his head with an updated slogan on his hoodie which read, "Coolest king in the world".

He also wrote the caption: 'Accurate. "I'm deeply offended and will not be working with H&M anymore".
