People Vandalize H&M Stores In South Africa To Protest Against Racist Ad

In 2018’s first biggest PR disaster, the Swedish clothing company ‘H&M’ is facing a HUGE backlash over their online ad for ‘Coolest Monkey In The Jungle’ Hoodie modelled by a black child.

H&M posted an apology and immediately withdrew sales of that green hoodie with the inscription “coolest monkey in the jungle” after A LOT of people called out the racism.

But the controversy continues to escalate as activists in South Africa vandalized a lot of H&M stores in protest today.

The situation got so out of hand that police were called and they were forced to shoot rubber bullets at protesters to control the situation.

H&M hasn’t responded to this yet, but South African people on Twitter stand divided on this issue on racism.
