People Are Outraged With Clothing Retailer H&M After Image Deemed Racist Is Posted Online

How does this happen?

A few months ago, Dove came under fire after running an ad that many deemed to be racist. The ad featured a black model ‘turning in to’ a white model after using Dove’s body wash. Even writing this it’s hard to believe that anyone thought this was a good idea. It’s even harder to believe that this ad got made in the first place. It seems that some companies didn’t learn from Dove’s glaring mistake. H&M is now under fire after an image featuring what many are calling a racist hoodie was posted online.

The Dove campaign caused outrage among many who decided to boycott the company due to the offensive ad. Many are also calling for a boycott of H&M and are demanding an apology after the image that many people deemed racist and offensive was posted online.

While many were watching the stars grace the red carpet at the Golden Globe awards, other were drawing attention to an ad run on H&M’s British website.

The clothing company posted an image of a young black boy wearing what many are calling a racist hoodie. The image caused an uproar on social media.

As a result H&M not only issued a public apology, but they also pulled the racist hoodie from their stores completely.
