H&M is finally apologizing for that controversial ad

Members of the Economic Freedom Fighters protested and trashed H&M stores in Gauteng on 13 January 2018 after a racist advert sparked outrage H&M is finally apologizing for that controversial ad

The distraught mum told Gulf News that some vile social media users have even called a "monkey" while trying to defend her son. Spot the massive flaw in logic there.

Interestingly, a few days later, Terry Mango, the mother of the little boy in the photo, spoke out, but her reaction is not what you might expect.

The mother of 5-year-old model of advertising H&M, who has dressed for campaign hoodie with the inscription "the Best monkey in the jungle", Terry Mango, responded to the unfolding scandal. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about this...

Amid the very public backlash ignited by The Weeknd's tweet and James' response, H&M was quick to pull the sweatshirt.

The company that made the shirt, H&M, pulled the advertisement down after numerous complaints, including celebrities who slammed the ad, such as National Basketball Association star LeBron James and music producer and artist, P Diddy. I do not believe that H&M had racism thoughts when they made the clothes.

The Swedish multinational clothing-retail company said in the apology statement, "We understand that many people are upset about the image of the children's hoodie". "We, who work at H&M, can only agree".

"We're deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print", the company. "The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States", the company wrote. It's obvious that our routines haven't been followed properly. "Just because YOU don't experience racism, it doesn't mean it doesn't exist". This is without any doubt. H&M issued an apology the next day, admitting that it was a gross oversight and saying they would investigate how the photo was ever approved so that this doesn't happen again.
