The mother of the young boy involved in a racially insensitive H&M advertisement doesn’t see anything wrong it. In fact, she’s unbothered by the controversy and suggests black people “stop crying wolf all the time.”
Terry Mango took to social media on Wednesday to respond to opinions about the ad saying, “That’s my son… I’ve been to all photo shoots and this was no an exception, everyone is entitled to their opinion about this. This is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modeled… stop crying Wolf all the time, unnecessary issue.”

The H&M ad in question shows the child wearing a hoodie with the words “coolest monkey in the jungle” emblazoned on the front. Since going viral the company issued an official apology, but not before The Weeknd and rapper G Eazy end their partnership with the brand.
Many celebs such as Diddy and LeBron James also spoke out regarding the issue. According to British newspaper Metro, Diddy is reportedly offering the young boy a one-million dollar contract to join his brand Sean John.
