The Weeknd Parts Ways With H&M Amid Racial Controversy

Consumers took to social media after discovering the offense on the retailer's website and blasted the clothing retailer for being "racist" and more.

UK Labor Party lawmaker Kate Osamor tweeted that she was "totally shocked, dismayed to say the very least" by the image.

Add H&M to the list of retailers to come under fire. "Therefore, we have not only removed the image from our channels, but also the garment from our product offering globally".

The hoodie is still available to buy online but it no longer features the image of the child modelling it.

Another user, Mimicgawd, posted a "fixed" version of the ad, with a reworked slogan that read: "Coolest Kid in the racist ass H&M catalog". "I'm sure the apologies are a coming", The Roots drummer wrote. He later released a fall line with clothing including jackets, sweatshirts and hoodies. We will also look into our internal routines to avoid such situations in the future.

"They removed the picture but are still selling the item". A number of people literally announced their boycott of H&M via Twitter. "Now they're trying to COVER IT UP".

Toronto-based rapper, The Weeknd, who released his own line with H&M previous year, announced via Twitter that he will no longer be working with the company.
