MONKEY IN THE JUNGLE HOODIE: H&M Store Vandalized In South Africa Over ‘Racist Hoodie’ (Video)

A boycott protest at an H&M outlet in Sandton, South Africa over a ‘racist hoodie’ with a “coolest monkey in the jungle” inscription modeled by a little black boy, took a negative twist as the Swedish retail clothing company’s outlet was vandalized.

It was gathered that the violence which spilled over in at least four malls as the latest race row to engulf the Swedish brand escalated, left Riot police firing rubber bullets at protesters as they vandalized a string of H&M’s stores in South Africa after ordering the Swedish brand to stop trading.

Sun Uk reports that Mannequins and rails of clothes were sent flying and trampled on by activists, as they stormed shops across Johannesburg and demanded the retailer shut its doors or face ‘indefinite’ action.

Innocent shoppers and bystanders were forced to flee as chanting gangs wearing uniforms of the country’s radical opposition party swept through at H&M stores across the city, including Africa’s flagship store in the upmarket suburb of Sandton.


Floyd Shivambu, spokesman for the Economic Freedom Fighters party, praised the action, saying the retailer was ‘now facing the consequences for its racism’.

Recall that earlier this week, H&M was forced to apologize and order a mass withdrawal of stock after publishing an advert depicting a black boy wearing a green hoodie emblazoned with ‘coolest monkey in the jungle’ triggered outrage.


“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,” the firm said.

“I’m the mum and this is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modelled… Stop crying Wolf all the time, unnecessary issue here… Get over it,” wrote Terry Mango in a social media post which has now been deleted.

In another message, she added: “That’s my son…. av been to all photoshoots and this was not an exception, everyone is entitled to their opinion about this.

“I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

I like country like this that don't take shit. while the world who are mostly white are condemning Trump for his racist comments, Nigeria government and its people kept quiet like the comment isn't directed at them. Nigerians don't know how to react to international insults. they only know how to insults each other, kill themselves, kidnap themselves and loot. We msut learn  to react to negative news and insults targeted against us by foreign nationals. Kudos my SA brothers. Stupid, sick, sluggish so called giant of Africa.

Most Africans are to weak don’t know when to act, that is while our shithole Africa leaders are able to manipulate their own citizens. How can you hear that a leader or government officials will steal millions or even billions then the citizens that can not feed even twice a day would be smiling and crying.
For me is the Africa leaders that is the shithole , because they fail to build the country and better the life of their citizens, they are really the shithole. They can not reply the arrogant US president because they worship the westerners, thats where they run to hide their stolen money and run for treatment anytime they are sick , they are really the shithole that bring Africa countries so low in the eyes of the westerners. Shithole Africa leaders.

had it been H&M have a clothing outlet in Nigeria, would Nigerians have reacted like these south Africans did?

of course the average Nigerian youths wouldn't have done so;  unless they were instigated by some bunch of dubious and crooked politicians


someone here even had the temerity to say that these south Africans have a tendency for violence?

because they reacted and responded to an international insult which was directed on the African continent?


#SHAME
