EFF Protests Outside H&M Stores Against 'Monkey' Sweatshirt

The party is outraged after the clothing group's race faux pas earlier this week.


The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on Saturday protested at the H&M clothing store in Sandton City in northern Johannesburg, eNCA reported.

This follows a sweater advert that sparked outrage globally and on social media in the past week for posing a black child model in a sweatshirt emblazoned with the words, "Coolest Monkey In The Jungle."

According to EWN, The EFF is boycotting H&M stores around Gauteng in protest against the advert.
