The Weeknd Cuts Ties With H&M After They Release Ad Calling A Black Child A Monkey

The artist has been collaborating with the retail clothing company for nearly a year.

Multinational retail-clothing company H&M is facing some serious heat after promoting an ad on its site that many have blasted for being racist. The ad shows a black boy wearing a hoodie that reads “coolest monkey in the jungle.” H&M has since pulled the ad and apologized, but that hasn’t kept artist The Weeknd from cutting ties with the clothing site that he worked on a second collaboration with back in September.
