Maybach Music Group’s Wale is just as disgusted with H&M as the next person. The hip-hop artist has weighed-in on the drama currently surrounding the popular clothing line following its controversial af advertisement.
Ralph Folarin went to his Instagram Stories this week and let loose his thoughts.
A few hours ago, H&M issued a public statement and apology over its “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle” hoodie.
The announcement came hours after crooner The Weeknd cut ties with the company over its advertisement.

Over the last 24 hours, celebs have bashed H&M and unleashed their emotions.
Sad @hm I can’t fucking believe a company of y’all status should play with our culture like this…. from me and my community FUCK YALL & FUCK YALL APOLOGIES 🤬🤬🤬 #BoycottHM Crazy shit is a lot people still gone shop in H&M 😞…. This no different from @newsweek posting a disrespectful picture of Doctor King. NEVER GET MAD JUST STOP SUPPORTING THEM….. This ain’t a white black thing!!!! FYI Black and White people only exist in America.
I’m sure the apologies are a coming. And the ads will be pulled. I’m certain there will Be media fixers and whatnot and maybe a grand gesture like a donation to some charity (donations under these circumstances are the corporate version #SomeOfMyBestFriendsAre move if there ever was one) all this tells me about @HM is that the seats in the boardroom lack something…wanna take a guess?
