The mother of a black child who was featured in a controversial H&M ad for a hoodie that read, “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle,” said that people calling it racially insensitive need to “get over it.”
Nah. Race hustlers gotta hustle. Still, it could've been worse. The hoodie that reads: Coolest nigga in tha hood!
“Am the mum and this is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modelled,” Mango wrote. “Stop crying wolf all the time, unnecessary issue here … get over it.”
Yup. It's funny when non-Blacks get offended on behalf of Black people over an issue that's utterly pointless. Slavery markets exist in Northern Africa today but the outrage is over a fucking T-shirt.
“Everyone is entitled to their opinion about this,” Mango wrote. “ … I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”
Members of a South African opposition party stormed into some H&M stores across the country on Saturday to protest a promotional image of a black child wearing a sweatshirt with the words “Coolest monkey in the jungle.”
