Stop crying wolf all the time, unnecessary issue here.

In another instance, Mango urged people to "stop crying wolf".

Terry even posted the question; "If I bought that jumper and put it on him and posted it on my pages, would that make me racist?". "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".

On Monday, H&M sparked outrage across the web when an image of a child wearing a sweatshirt reading "Coolest Monkey in the Jungle" surfaced on their site.

Strangely enough, Mango said that some of the people criticizing her for allowing her son to model the hoodie used racial slurs in their messages.

Other celebrities have also gone after H&M online.

LeBron James, Sean "Diddy" Combs and The Weeknd were among the celebrities who slammed the advert as shoppers called for a boycott of the chain, with The Weeknd even ending his relationship with the brand. H&M swiftly released a statement apologising for the image, removing it from their website and social channels as well as pulling the hoodie itself from shelves - but the damage was already done.

Singer The Weeknd, who has a clothing line at the retailer, says he was "shocked and embarrassed" by the photo and that he would end his ties with the company. "Everyone is entitled to their opinion". I really don't understand but not [because I'm] choosing not to but because it's not my way of thinking. To add more insult to injury, they issued a half-baked apology which didn't sit so well with people.

National Basketball Association star Lebron James shared a photo of the boy with a crown superimposed on his head.

Twitter user, Selene Arianela tweeted comparing the image to a white boy modeling a "survival expert" hoodie, which didn't seem to make matters any better for H&M.

"Last year I chose to do a holiday campaign w/ @HM specifically because it centered women and girls as imaginative doers; because it centered an intelligent dark skinned girl [with] natural hair as protagonist; because it featured a loving, creative, working class black family", he wrote on Instagram.

While rapper G-Eazy, whose album The Beautiful & Damned is now in the U.S. top five, had collaborated with H&M on a clothing line that was due to launch in March this year.
