The Mother of the H&M Model Wearing a Controversial Hoodie Says “Get Over It”

Plot twist.

Okay, so H&M faced insane outrage when they released an ad featuring a young black male model wearing a hoodie that read “Coolest Monkey In Jungle.” The ad was so insensitive to some, that the Weeknd even severed his relationship with H&M over the it.

H&M has issued an official apology:

“We’re deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print. Therefore, we’ve not only removed the image from our channels, but also the garment from our product offering.”

They later added,

“…we have got this wrong and we are deeply sorry. We have a responsibility to be aware of and attuned to all racial and cultural sensitivities – and we have not lived up to this responsibility this time…”

 

HOWEVER, the mother of the black child in the ad didn’t see anything wrong with it.

Terry Mango, the mom of the kid, wrote this:

“That’s my son… I’ve been to all photo shoots and this was no an exception, everyone is entitled to their opinion about this. This is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modeled… stop crying Wolf all the time, unnecessary issue.”

 

 

Turns out, the mother is from Sweden ANDDDDDD it’s literally illegal to be racist. Guess they don’t think they worst all the time.
