Mother of H&M Child Model In ‘Racist’ Hoodie Storm Tells People To ‘Get Over It’ As Diddy Offers Him £1m Contract

Mother of H&M race row child model speaks out
The mother of the child model caught up in the H&M ‘racism’ storm appears to have defended the offensive jumper, telling people to ‘get over it’. H&M has apologised after selling a hoodie emblazoned with the slogan ‘coolest monkey in the jungle’, which was modelled on its website by a young black boy. The jumper has now been removed from sale, with H&M collaborators including The Weeknd and G-Eazy parting ways with the Swedish brand. However, social media posts circulating online suggest that the mother of the child model isn’t bothered by the hoodie at all.

Terry Mango

A woman named Terry Mango, who is from Kenya but lives in Sweden, is believed to be the mother of the child model, and screenshots of comments she allegedly posted about the situation have begun to circulate online. The comments on Facebook read: ‘[I] am the mum, and this is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modeled. Stop crying wolf all the time, [it’s] an unnecessary issue here. Get over it. 

‘That’s my son, [I’ve] been to all [of his] photoshoots and this was not an exception. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about this. I really don’t understand but not [because I’m] choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking. Sorry.’ has contacted Terry for comment. This comes as P Diddy reportedly is set to offer the child a £1 million modelling contract with his own brand Sean John.

Terry Mango comment
The rapper shared a drawing off the model wearing a jumper reading ‘coolest king in the world’. H&M apologised for offence caused, writing on Twitter: ‘We understand that many people are upset about the image of the children’s hoodie. We, who work at H&M, can only agree.
