H&M Apologizes for ‘Monkey’ Image Featuring Black Child



The clothing retailer H&M apologized on Monday for an image appearing in its online store that showed a black child model wearing a hooded sweatshirt that said “coolest monkey in the jungle.” The company removed the image on Monday and said it would also pull the shirt from its stores worldwide.

The image was widely criticized online for its reference to a monkey, an animal that has long featured in racial and ethnic slurs. The Weeknd, a Canadian pop star of Ethiopian descent, was one of those who criticized the clothing giant, writing on Twitter that he would decline to work with the company in the future.


The ad sparked a backlash on social media, with some calling it inappropriate, disgusting and negligent.

One bears the words “Mangrove jungle” and “Official survival expert”; the other has outlines of various animals including giraffes and tigers.

Read Oprah Winfrey's inspiring speech at Golden Globes 2018

Image result for winners at golden globe 2018


Oprah Winfrey accepted her Cecil B. DeMille Award on Sunday night at the Golden Globes with a message to the young girls watching: "A new day is on the horizon."

The Cecil B. DeMille Award is an honorary Golden Globe Award bestowed by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment"

The media mogul's message came during a Golden Globes ceremony notable for being the first major award show since Hollywood first began addressing rampant sexual harassment against women in the entertainment industry and beyond.

Some of the biggest names brought with them activists for gender and racial justice, including #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, who started the hashtag campaign which exposed the scale of sexual harassment against women worldwide.

Part of the mission of anti-sexual harassment group Time's Up, which led the night's all-black fashion movement, has been to raise awareness of sexual harassment occurring outside of Hollywood.
Winfrey made the same point in her speech, saying sexual harassment "transcends any culture, geography, race, religion, politics or work place."

Below is a full transcript of Winfrey's acceptance speech. Read after the cut;

Selena Gomez Visits Her Childhood Home in Texas


Pop star Selena Gomez took a trip down memory lane on Saturday as she paid a visit to her childhood home in Texas.

Selena returned to the city of Grand Prairie over the weekend and headed back to the property, in which she grew. But she wasn’t able to look around inside as the family which now calls the place home was not present at the time of her visit.

Instead, Selena had to settle for a photo of herself sitting on the pad’s doorsteps.

“The home I grew up in, from birth to 13…,” she captioned the image the singer posted on Instagram, adding, “(no one was home when I knocked this time lol (laugh out loud)).”

The singer/actress then grew reflective as she wondered how her life would have turned out had she not pursued stardom.
