H&M’s ad featuring a black boy in a “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle” hoodie has sparked worldwide outrage and accusations of racism, but his mom doesn’t see anything wrong with the imaging, and says people just need to “get over it.”
According to African Warrior magazine, the boy’s mother is Terry Mango, a Kenyan living in Stockholm Sweden, where H&M is based.
Mango took to Facebook amid the international uproar to say the whole thing has been blown out of proportion.
“Am the mum and this was just one of the hundreds outfit my son has modeled. stop crying wolf all the time unnecessary issues here..get over it,” she wrote.
Welp, you can imagine what people are writing on Terry Mango’s timeline.
