H&M bring back the 'coolest monkey in the jungle shirt', so I can buy it for my black wife
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Yesterday I learned that H&M made one of the greatest hoodies Ive ever seen that said 'coolest monkey in the jungle'. I wanted to buy one for my black wife and to my horror, I discovered that it is the latest company to cave to social pressure of people who get offended by everything. They pulled the shirt because the child model was black. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2018/01/08/hm-apologizes-for-showing-black-child-wearing-a-monkey-in-the-jungle-sweatshirt/?utm_term=.b909462d6123
I already had placed my order with amazon to buy a shirt for myself that said 'coolest cracker in the box' (because Im white, and pretty cool, at least in my own mind) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078WXCZX2 but now its silly if Im the only one wearing a funny t-shirt with a racial double meaning. It was only great if we both wore them together as an interracial couple. If H&M doesnt bring back this great shirt I will have to return my cracker shirt, and I will probably have to pay for return shipping out of pocket. Not only am I pissed off about this and don't understand the overreaction, neither does the mom of the model child. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5257715/Mother-H-M-race-row-child-model-speaks-out.html
I'm asking H&M to bring back this great shirt, and the only way it can happen is if the people who don't get offended by every little thing and have a sense of humor finally realize that they have power to influence corporations too. Corporations and business have been bullied by these oversensitive people for long enough, and its time that people who find things humorous take a stand... and get me my shirt!
