Mother Of H&M Model Tells Everyone To 'Get Over It

American rapper, G-Eazy has ended his partnership with H&M over a "racist" campaign by the clothing brand, following in the footsteps of The Weeknd.

Terru Mango posted about the H&M adverstisemnet featuring her son.

"Am the mum and this is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modeled", Mango wrote. "Since H&M is based out of Sweden, I know the Swedish aren't as touchy about these subjects, but that is bad, maybe they should have switched the hoodies".

Terry Mango, who claims she is the model's mom and has posted several photos of the boy on Instagram, stated that she didn't understand the outrage that consumed the internet on Monday, and believed people were overreacting.

She said: "How can you fight racism if you make racist remarks?", she said. "You can not try to defend my son and use the same words to describe me".

Mini range updated with new tech and DCT gearbox
Prices for the updated Mini range will be revealed closer to delivery around March, with a slight increase expected. The cars all get new light alloy wheels and an expanded range of leather trim, interior surfaces, and color lines.

H&M has since apologized for the advertisement and had acknowledged their error over the matter.

Within hours of the image gaining attention, H&M took the decision to remove it from its United Kingdom and USA websites and "all other channels". However, they were soon forced to issue a second statement, doubling down on their apology as the chorus of voices grew louder. The rapper has officially cut all ties with H&M going forward. Just like we want to live in a world where it isn't a big deal to have a female U.S President or Doctor Who - we want to get to a point in society where none of these things influence anything anymore.

"We are deeply sorry that the picture was taken", a spokesman said. We have taken down the image and we have removed the garment. "But there are many questions you can ask - how did they miss that?" he asked. "I think they are using this as an advertising tactic, because now the black community is involved and upset, I mean look at all the tweets and retweets on Twitter". His decision to end his relationship with the retailer because of the ad comes after hip-hop artist The Weeknd announcement he will no longer work with H&M.
