Mother Of Black Child Model Tells People To'Get Over From'Racist Monkey Hoodie Issue

The mother took to to brand the backlash to the image "unnecessary" and urged critics, including global superstars, to "stop crying wolf" and "get over it".

In another message, Mango said she had been to all of her son's modeling shoots and was with him when he modeled the hoodie in question.

Interestingly, a few days later, Terry Mango, the mother of the little boy in the photo, spoke out, but her reaction is not what you might expect.

"How can you fight racism if you make racist remarks?"

"Am the mum and this is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modelled", Mango wrote.

"You can not try to defend my son and use the same words to describe me".

"That's my son", Mango posted on Facebook in response to the debate.

"Everyone is entitled to their opinion about this", Mango wrote.

National Basketball Association megastar LeBron James and Manchester United forward Romelu Lukaku are among the many who spoke out against the ad.

Ms Mango's uncle, Kenyan-born music promoter Clay Onyango, said the family have met with H&M and believed the brand had not meant to be racist, but found the decision to run the hoodie mind-boggling. H&M has previously issued an apology on Instagram and removed that ad as well.

"Our position is simple and unequivocal - we have got this wrong and we are deeply sorry". Therefore, we've not only removed the image from our channels, but also the garment from our product offering.

THE mum of a child model at the centre of the H&M racism storm claims she has been racially abused after saying people should "get over it".

"It is obvious that our routines have not been followed properly. We will now be doing everything we possibly can to prevent this from happening again in future".
