H&M ‘monkey’ jumper

Last week there was an outrage over the picture above that appeared on the H&M website. In the past black people have been compared to monkeys so it was an awful idea for the Swedish retailer to publish pictures of a black boy modeling the top that says ‘coolest monkey in the jungle’. The scandal made such celebrities as The Weeknd and G-Eazy cut ties with the brand and completely changed my outlook on H&M as well.

However, some people are trying to make money out of this whole thing. Even though H&M apologized for making the mistake and withdrew the hoodie, someone is trying to sell his son’s second hand top on eBay for over $1000.

 

 

It is sad that racism still exists in this day of age and that such major retailers as H&M don’t look at their products careful enough.
