Let us not forget the ‘Coolest Monkey in the Jungle’ hoodie fiasco in January.

An ad on Swedish fashion brand H&M’s website stoked anger for displaying a black boy modelling a hoodie with the inscription “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle” for its UK stores.

All of the backlash caused the image to be removed from the site.

H&M is still racking in the dough though.
