H&M stores trashed in protest over 'racist' hoodie

Cops on standby as EFF goes on H&M rampage H&M stores trashed in South Africa in protest over 'racist' ad

People angered by a "racist" advert for H&M have ransacked some of the clothing chain's stores in South Africa.

Video footage posted to social media on Saturday (local time) showed members of the Economic Freedom Fighters - a socialist South African political party - outside the Clearwater Mall in Johannesburg blocking access to the store. "We continue to monitor the situation closely and will open the stores as soon as the situation is safe again", the spokesperson said, adding that no staff or customers had been injured in the protests.

Members of the Economic Freedom Front (EFF) attacked H&M stores across the country on Saturday in protest against a racist advert by the company.

In one location, rubber bullets were fired to disperse demonstrators. "We are here to just remind them that the monkeys own this place", Mabunda said. We don't want them to say anything to us, we are telling them to close the shop.

"We're not going to leave". The H&M signage outside the shop had been broken and red fragments were still on the floor.

"This shop must close".

EFF protestors also targeted H&M stores in Cape Town, including the store in Canal Walk.

The retailer had used a black child to model a sweatshirt with the slogan "coolest monkey in the jungle".

The campaign group Models Of Diversity, which pushes for more diversification across the industry, said H&M should be "ashamed".

"In terms of accepting or not accepting your apology, it is not my prerogative". Many people accused the worldwide chain store of racism.

General manager of the Menlyn Park shopping centre Olive Ndebele confirmed the skirmishes.
