7 times artists and illustrators reimagined the H&M ad
Artists across the globe have decided to create a positive picture following the racial controversy involving retail clothing store H&M.
The Swedish retailer came under fire this week for using a black child to model a sweatshirt with the slogan "coolest monkey in the jungle".
H&M was forced to apologise after hundreds of social media users worldwide accused it of being racist.
The image of the child in the hoodie appeared on the retailer's online store in Britain.
The company has since removed the offending ad, but many celebrities and public figures have vowed to boycott the brand.
Meanwhile, several artists and graphic designers have recreated the sweatshirt ad with their own empowering illustrations.
Here are a few adaptations found on Instagram:
