H&M Stores in South Africa Close Their Doors

All 17 H&M stores have closed due to several customers vandalizing the stores. After the offensive ad of an African American boy wearing a green hoodie that referred to him as a “monkey”, the company has been under fire. Vandalizers have been seen knocking over mannequins and clothing racks.

“None of our staff or customers have been injured. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will open the stores as soon as the situation is safe again”, stated the H&M representative.

All Black Lives Matter Groups have called for a boycott of the popular company until they discontinue selling the hoodies and associating with the brand.
