The mother of the handsome young lad featured in the controversial H&M ‘monkey’ advertisement has a word of advice for Americans who tend to overreact to every little controversy: Get over yourselves.
Terry Mango, the British woman whose son was featured in a H&M ad wearing a green hoodie with the words “COOLEST MONKEY IN THE JUNGLE”, took to social media to diminish the controversy.
[I’m] the [mom] and this is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modelled [sic]……. Stop crying wolf all the time, unnecessary issue here. Get over it,” she wrote.
As a Brit myself, I have to agree with her. I told you yesterday that H&M and other companies use hot button gimmicks to drive traffic and free press.
Americans fall for these types of stunts all too easily.
Narcissist Sean Combs, who has fallen off recently, even offered the boy $1 million American dollars for a Sean Jean modeling contract.
Knowing British women like I do, Terry probably told him to keep his money and stop using her son for publicity.
What do you think? Should Terry take Puffy’s million that he probably doesn’t have to give?
