On Sunday night, New York Times columnist Charles Blow pointed to a sweater being advertised on H&M's British website, a green hoodie emblazoned with the text "coolest monkey in the jungle."

The ensuing controversy led to comments from celebrities like Lebron James and The Weeknd (as well as the rest of the internet) slamming H&M for — whether intentionally or not — making an extremely tone-deaf modeling decision.
