A hoodie promotion by Hennes & Mauritz (H&M) has gone sour, after the Swedish multinational clothing-retail company used a  black child model to promote a hoodie with the inscription, “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle“.


Plus size stylist, Stephanie Yeboah, who was irritated by the move she tagged racial, took to Twitter to initiate the call out thread against the clothing company, who used white kids for other hoodies without the inscription.

Here are the call out tweets, as some defended the company, saying it was an honest mistake.
