LeBron James and Diddy join criticism of H&M over 'racist' sweatshirt ad

LeBron James and Diddy join criticism of H&M over 'racist' sweatshirt ad

They released an ad of a Black child in a monkey sweatshirt.

Saira Khan - from the British panel show, Loose Women - doesn't understand the uproar, which she made clear on the show. "I would say that once you saw this you should call it out that you should not even be comfortable with this as I'm not comfortable with it". For humanity's sake, I hope this incident does not make an indelible negative impression on the masses.

And yet, Khan finishes her thoughts on the subject with, "I don't think H&M have done this deliberately", which is met with loud cheering from the audience.

"I$3 am the mum and this is one of [the] hundreds of outfits my son has modeled", she wrote in a Facebook comment.

Still, others felt if the mom was cool with it, then folks should move on.




"I don't think H&M have done this deliberately". He tweeted saying, "woke up this morning shocked and embarrassed by this photo". "I'm deeply offended and will not be working with @hm anymore".

Diddy also posted a picture of the boy, drawn by artist Akomics Art, which replaced the former caption with "Coolest King in the world".

According to the British newspaper Metro, Diddy is reportedly offering the little boy in the picture a one-million dollar modeling contract to join him at his own clothing company, Sean John.

H&M has apologized for the advertisement. Celebrities like Jesse Williams, Beyoncé, and Kevin Hart, who also have a past with H&M, are facing a similar pressure.

The Swedish-based company says it is sorry the image was taken. "It has been now removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States". It is obvious that our routines have not been followed properly. This is without any doubt. We are now investigating internally to avoid this from happening again.
