Clothing store H&M has apologized for their racist hoodie reading, “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle” but, Terry Mango doesn’t see the big deal.
“Am the mum and this is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modelled…..stop crying Wolf all the time, unnecessary issue here….get over it,” Terry Mango wrote on Facebook.
Mother of H&M child model, Mango, said on Facebook that she didn’t understand the outrage that stirred over the picture of her son in the hoodie. She also believed that people were overreacting.
“That’s my son…..av been to all photoshoots and this was not an exception, everyone is entitled to their opinion about this.”
Mango took a dig at celebrities that spoke out on the matter including Diddy, Jesse Williams, LeBron James and more who weren’t fond of H&M dressing her son in the offending hoodie.
The Weekend and G-Eazy have stated that they are canceling their collaborations with the clothing store.
H&M has apologized and has taken the picture off their page, releasing a statement stating, “we have a responsibility to be aware of attuned to all racial and cultural sensitivities – and we have not lived up to this responsibility this time.”
