But sometimes things slip through, and you're left wondering, "How did it get to this point?"

CLOTHING giant H&M has been branded "disgusting" after it featured a black child model in a hoodie bearing the quote "Coolest monkey in the jungle". Responses to the tweet debated whether or not it is even a racial issue, but the majority of responses were negative against the brand.

H&M apologized on Monday - but some people think that isn't enough.

The retailer has apologised after it faced criticism online from people who accused it of being inappropriate and negligent. "We, who work at H&M, can only agree".

"We are deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print", the company said in a statement.




"This image has now been removed from all H&M channels and we apologize to anyone this may have offended", said H&M spokeswoman Anna Eriksson. This is without any doubt.

As previously reported, the Weeknd struck up a partnership with H&M a year ago, developing his own fashion line for the Swedish retail giant.

"It was never our intention for this image to be perceived in this way and we will be reviewing our internal routines to ensure that such a misjudgment does not happen again".

"Woke up this morning shocked and embarrassed by this photo", the pop star shared on Twitter today (Jan. 8).
