The Weeknd And G-Eazy Say H&M Ain't That Type Of Hype!

The Weeknd broke it off with clothing company H&M.
Grammy award winning singer The Weeknd and up-in-coming rapper G-Eazy both slam H&M after it made an offensive hoodie and placed a Black child in it.

They found that H&M isn't in style. They publicly cut ties with the fashion company after it made the mistake of plastering a Black model with the words monkey.

The Weeknd immediately cut ties after he got word of it.

As with Canadian R&B singer The Weeknd, the California rapper has decided that the controversial hoodie the company rolled out went too far.

He went to social media to cut ties with the company.

The controversy surrounding the Black child wearing a hoodie with the title "The Coolest Monkey in the Jungle."
G-Eazy said no to H&M.
H&M has took a major drop in its revenue. It has closed some locations and trimmed back expansion plans. 

“We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States,” wrote H&M in a statement obtained by Fox News. “We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

Here's our early thread devoted to The Weeknd and G-Eazy.

Thank you for standing up against corporate bigotry.
