The Weeknd Ends Partnership With H&M Over “Racist” Ad

Published: Monday 8th Jan 2018 by Sam

The fallout from H&M‘s ill-advised ad continues.

As reported, the clothing giant featured a black child model on their website sporting a hoody with the words “coolest monkey in the jungle.”

The company have removed the image and issued an apology, but it hasn’t stopped the backlash from building.

And one of those speaking up and out is singer The Weeknd.

Full story below..

The star, who is of Ethiopian descent, was so disgusted with the scandal that he has dissolved his current partnership with the company (with whom he teamed up with for his own range):

    H&M think their slick especially when it’s a racist president in office…

    Never cared for H&M and I certainly won’t now. They aren’t worried though since their consumer base is majority white, and those customers won’t be as incensed as blacks…if the story even reaches their ears.

    H&M STARTED European. Very fitting sizes and unique. They sold out like everyone else does about 8 years ago and became more commercial. They have hipster areas, urban, etc. every time I went into H&M there were just as many blacks as whites. It’s extremely cheap clothing and appeals to the masses. Not just white people shop there

      Suicide I don’t think their clothes are “extremely cheap” nor are they fashionable. You can find much better quality clothes at Nordstrom or a boutique store. H&M is the same as JC Penny fashions but higher (a very very slight upgrade from Kmart and Walmart clothes).
