After H&M published photos of a young black model in a hoodie that read "coolest monkey in the jungle", people on social media quickly called out the clothing line for creating such a tone-deaf, racially insensitive image.
Global clothing retail giant H&M has been in the news over the past week for obviously the wrong reasons. "Stop crying wolf all the time, unnecessary issue here ... get over it".
"I am the mum and this is one of the hundreds of outfits my son has modelled. Get over it." After receiving backlash, the Nigerian native, who is now living in Sweden, defended her opinion adding, "I really don't understand not coz am choosing not to but because it's not my way of thinking".
Terry Mango - who is of Kenyan descent and now lives in Sweden where H&M is based - said that she does not understand why people have been reacting so negatively to the photograph.

"Everyone is entitled to their opinion about this", the mother vented.
Yet, whilst there are big names up in arms against H&M this week, Twitter users are divided on the subject; with some declaring that those viewing the photo as racist are the ones associating the black child with the monkey imagery, not the actual use of the model by H&M themselves.
