The Weeknd

woke up this morning shocked and embarrassed by this photo. i’m deeply offended and will not be working with @hm anymore...







Obviously Monkeys are used a lot in kid's stuff so should we be highlighting it just because a little black kid is wearing a jumper?



On the flip side, possibly a deliberate marketing ploy to stir up the brand. Maybe just an innocent mistake but I doubt someone in marketing for such a big company would be that thick.

Simple mistake I reckon.



It's only racist if, rather than just seeing a little kid in a hoodie, you see a little black kid in a hoodie that says monkey.

The kids parents obviously werent offended but no doubt other people will be on there behalf. Surely only a racist person would bring any attention to this anyway.............seasider.

Was on Sky News this morning following a tweet by one of their fashion reps. Simply sharing for thoughts, nothing more.

This is my exact opinion too.

A racist see’s the colour of the skin before the person.



Personally I think it’s good the little lad has it on, he is no different to any other child that age and I know for a fact all kids love Monkeys.
