So it sounds like H&M is just a bunch of monkey business these days! They thought it would be brilliant to sell a shirt describing a black boy as a “monkey” only to take it down after immediately receiving negative feedback. No kidding, Sherlock!

The Weekend definitely did not like the less than intelligent move by H&M and let his fans know that he would not be working with them anymore. Smart move!
H&M issued an apology about the shirt, “We are deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print. Therefore, we have not only removed the image from our channels, but also the garment from our product offering globally.”
After taking down the offensive shirt, they replaced it with this one. You just have to wonder why they thought the hoodie was a good idea in the first place?
