Bish Whet? H&M UK Uses Young Black Model For ‘Coolest Monkey’ Hoodie

By  | 

So what happens when you don’t have black people with a seat at the table at the table to tell you “Hell to the nah!”

H&M UK is under heavy fire via social media for a photo advertising a monkey hoodie with a young black model. Now to H&M’s defense, it’s not uncommon for a child to wear clothes with animals on them, but it looks bad… like really bad.

As of now the image is still up on H&M. You can check here to see if it’s still up. H&M Monkey Ad

Considering the racial climate H&M UK should’ve stayed away from this.


H&M has now taken the image down.

“This image has now been removed from all H&M channels and we apologize to anyone this may have offended,” said H&M spokeswoman Anna Eriksson.


Is it a bad ad or are we overly sensitive?
