The one person you think would be the most upset with the little black boy wearing the “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” sweatshirt in the H&M advertisement is not mad at all. Terry Mango, the mother of the black boy in the racist H&M advertisement are telling people they need to calm down because it’s not that big of a deal.
H&M released an advertisement were a little black boy was seen wearing a green sweatshirt that says, “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” this ad made the whole internet erupted. It also cost H&M some great business deals with The Weeknd and GEazy.

The Weeknd is cutting business ties with H&M over the racist advertisement. #theweeknd #hm #drake #oprah #oprahwinfrey #issarae #maryjblige #zoekravitz #kerrywashington #violadavis #halleberry #goldenglobes #jenniferlopez #jlo #2018 #rihanna #beyonce #kendalljenner #la #losangeles #hollywood #usc #ucla #melrose #dtla #venice #cali #california
A lot of the most influential people of our time even spoke out about this ad. Diddy, Lebron James, Jesse Williams and more took the time to address this issue.
Ms. Mango this ad is a very big deal. You’re letting a major company abuse your son over money. Your son is a black child this is just the beginning of bullsh*t he’s going to encounter in America.
Instead of saying it’s not a big deal you should be the main person speaking against this advertisement. They tried to embarrass your son in front of the whole world. Your son needs to know he’s a king not the “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” they are going to try to break him down his whole life with words and symbols like this.
Hopefully this little boy will get better guidance in his future. Hopefully he will get a better modeling gig then he did at H&M.
