LeBron James, Diddy and other celebrities rebuke H&M for 'monkey' hoodie
A slew of celebrities within the past 24 hours have scolded H&M for using a black child to model a sweatshirt sporting the phrase "coolest monkey in the jungle."
The image of the child first appeared over the weekend on the British version of the Swedish-based retailer's website and was removed by Monday morning, a spokesperson told CNBC.
James took to Instagram to post an edited version of H&M's ad, where the child was instead wearing a crown and called "king of the world.
Diddy also posted an image to his Instagram account where the child's hoodie reads instead: "coolest king in the world."
Manchester United soccer player Romelu Lukaku also posted an edited version of the H&M ad to Instagram that said "black excellence."
