H&M apologises after huge backlash to 'racist' photo of little boy


The picture shows a young black boy modelling a green hoodie with the slogan Coolest Monkey in the Jungle.

Outraged shoppers took to Twitter so complain, with many calling for people to boycott the shop

The hoodie, which is designed for boys aged one to ten years old, is still on sale for £7.99.
However the photo attached has been removed and replaced with a picture is just of the hoodie itself.
A H&M spokesman told the Evening Standard : "This image has now been removed from all H&M channels and we apologise to anyone this may have offended."
But many people do not agree, and don't believe the photo is racist.
