Protesters trash H&M stores as race row over ‘coolest monkey in the jungle’ black child model continues to escalate

Activists in South Africa have trashed H&M stores in protest at the clothing retailer’s advert for its ‘coolest monkey in the jungle’ hoodie that featured a black child model.

Violence spilled over in at least four malls as the latest race row to engulf the Swedish brand escalated, forcing the police police to fire rubber bullets at protesters.

Innocent shoppers and bystanders were forced to flee as chanting gangs wearing uniforms of the country’s radical opposition party swept through at H&M stores across the city, including Africa’s flagship store in the upmarket suburb of Sandton

    And exactly what did the protestors exhibit? Calm, rational, dignified behavior? Not really. More like a rampaging, irrational mob hell bent on total destruction.

      A pack of monkeys let loose in the store would have done less damage.

      You could say they acted like monkeys.

    But the important thing is don’t call it a shithole country. And in further news that the world has gone crazy, check out the headline currently at the Toronto Star website. Pride Toronto apologizes for having a letter to their website stating that transgender children will grow out of it. This is an outrage. The homosexual community is united that transgender children will always be perverts.

      They will see to the rearing of these future deviant perverts.

      I’d like to know how many gay men are interested in hooking up with women dressed in men’s clothes and calling themselves “men”, and how many lesbians are interested in hooking up with men in dresses calling themselves “women”. I’ve got a hunch that number would be quite low.

    I must say I am surprised they didn’t start throwing their own shit at people as well.

  • UCSPanther

    I think these vermin were just looking for an excuse to riot, loot and otherwise cause as much destruction as possible…

    • bargogx1

      They were probably auditioning for a membership in Antifa and/or BLM.

  • Tooth&Claw

    Well. The descriptor in terms of behaviour appears to be accurate.

    • mobuyus

      Yes, but they’re not cool they just be frozen man.

    White people have a right to live apart from these savages.

    I think the only this insanity will stop is if people willing to riot over trivial stuff start getting shot dead for their trouble.

    Willing to riot over cultural appropriation, perceived racism and other bizarre slights? Then you better be ready to lay your life down for your insanity.

    Getting Trayvon Martin’ed over SJW stuff is yet another entry on the long list of “stupid stuff to get shot over”…

    What a terrible thing. I can’t stop laughing.

    I think it’s time for another musical interlude.

    At least the authorities weren’t rayciss and followed the advice of Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake “we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well.”

  • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

    What better way to get your message across then a good old fashioned chimpout.

  • Dana Garcia

    Don’t be surprised if the malls close. People can shop online anyway and don’t need to visit a threatening place. Retail is dying and violence in stores will push some businesses off the cliff. Bye bye, jobs.

    • Tooth&Claw

      South Africa…a not bad place once, has turned into a pit.

  • ntt1

    South Africa is well on its way to being a shithole. shut the store down. As long as there are legal chimp outs by “opposition” monkeys, it is pointless to continue to pretend SA is the same as when it was under White rule.

    • ontario john

      Oh Nooooo!! You said shithole!!

      • ntt1

        yes and not to be confused with justine turdhole who is of course our child-like- emperor

  • shasta

    Kind of proving the point. aren’t they?

  • John

    Ah what else, eh?

  • Bernie

    Shithole Demonstrators.

  • DaninVan

    Certainly agree with the conclusions here, but on another note, wtf were the honchos in the advertising dept. thinking when they went down that road???

    Where can I get one of those super-cool shirts? Seriously!

    This is what happens when you capitulate to a mob – they punish you for it.

    So they protest the “Coolest Monkey” social gaff by Chimping out. Makes perfect sense to me.

    • Watchman

      I’m inclined to believe that the looting of the H&M stores was paid for clandestinely by monkeys who are unhappy with their being associated with people who might wear these t-shirts. /sarc
