Charlamange Tha God awards clothing chain H&M ‘Donkey Of The Day’ for January, 8th, 2018 for using a black child in their advertisements to model a sweatshirt that said “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle.” For the culturally clueless, the term monkey has been used for years to degrade black people. While Charlamange doesn’t believe H&M was being purposefully racist, it shows how out of touch and tone deaf the marketing department in these major companies can be to let something like this slide.
H&M has since apologized for the advertisement and has removed it from their website.
These corporations need to stop talking about being diverse and actually be diverse.
Watch ‘Donkey Of The Day’ above.
