Mother of H&M Model on 'Monkey' Hoodie Controversy: 'Get over it'

H&M maybe in hot water for their aid that featured a black boy wearing a sweatshirt saying, "Coolest Monkey In The Jungle," but appears that the boy’s mother, Terry Mango, is cool with it. She took to social media to fully endorse the ad.

It was only a few days ago that the ad sparked nationwide outrage, with several major names —including LeBron James and Diddy—speaking out against the racially insensitive ad. The Weeknd went as far as to sever ties with the mega-multinational retailer entirely, while Diddy even offered the young model a $1 million contract with Sean John.
