When many people found that ad offensive and racist, the other of that black boy doesn’t seem to care about the issue. H&M has previously issued an apology on Instagram and removed that ad as well.

The Swedish multinational clothing-retail company said in the apology statement, “We understand that many people are upset about the image of the children’s hoodie.” The company said in the statement, “We, who work at H&M, can only agree. We’re deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print. Therefore, we’ve not only removed the image from our channels, but also the garment from our product offering. It’s obvious that our routines haven’t been followed properly. This is without any doubt. We’ll thoroughly investigate why this happened to prevent this type of mistake from happening again.”

According to a screenshot reported by BET, Mango said, “That’s my son… I’ve been to all photo shoots and this was no an exception, everyone is entitled to their opinion about this.” She added, “This is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modeled… stop crying Wolf all the time, unnecessary issue.”

LeBron James edited the photo of the black boy call him the king of the world, he captioned the image: “@hm u got us all wrong! And we ain’t going for it! Straight up! Enough about y’all and more of what I see when I look at this photo. I see a Young King!! The ruler of the world, an untouchable Force that can never be denied! We as African Americans will always have to break barriers, prove people wrong and work even harder to prove we belong but guess what, that’s what we love because the benefits at the end of the road are so beautiful!!”
