Shame and disgrace has befallen the clothing retailer H&M after they dubiously placed one of their black child models in a monkey-branded outfit.
Undeniably loaded considering the black community’s painful history with images which depict its people as primates, the image caused uproar and prompted The Weeknd to end his working relationship with the company.
Now, Nicki Minaj– the world’s highest selling female rapper- is under pressure to do the same.
Enraged by the blatant disrespect, Minaj’s fans have urged her to consider leaving the company and her commercially successful venture with them.
Im waiting for nicki minaj to cancel her work with h&m also ???

So The Weeknd has pulled out from H&M where is Nicki Minaj and Jesse Williams?

Nicki and Jesse Williams should go ahead and file that H&M lawsuit.

Minaj’s union with the company stands as one of her more lucrative forays into fashion.
However, can she afford to stay silent on this issue?
