The Weeknd very quickly cut ties with H&M after the retailer published an ad for a hoodie that many considered racist. Now fans are encouraging Nicki Minaj to end her partnership with the company for the same reason.
“I’m just wondering when @NickiMinaj is pulling her support as well from H&M,” a supporter tweeted about the hip-hop star.
Another fan called out Minaj and actor Jesse Williams, who happened to appear together in a 2017 H&M holiday commercial.
“@iJesseWilliams should tell us what he’s thinking about H&M right now after they shot this black little kid being ‘the coolest monkey in the jungle’. Oh wait … @NICKIMINAJ too,” the fan tweeted.
We’d like to put on record our position in relation to the controversial image of our hoodie. Our position is simple - we’ve got this wrong and we’re deeply sorry. https://t.co/M9j5Fh2WxR— H&M (@hm) January 9, 2018
