The popular retailer H&M went under fire this week for an advertisement that was perceived as racist. The ad featured a child model of Kenyan decent in a hoodie that read "The Coolest Monkey In The Jungle". While the child's mother spoke up via social media basically telling the world to "get over it" the debate still rages on. Celebrities such as The Weeknd and and G-Eazy terminated their partnerships with the brand, protesters have trashed stores around the world and the masses are actually offended that his mom isn't offended! H&M has since issued an apology but can this really be fixed? Will you still shop with them? Comment below! Click here for more about this story.
