H&M has lost their minds!

The clothing store is receiving a lot of bad reviews after an ad that presented an African American child modeling a sweatshirt that reads “Coolest monkey in the jungle.”

On the other hand, another ad featured a Caucasian child with a sweatshirt that reads “survival expert.”

H&M removed the ad and apologized stating: "We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. This image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States."

Take a look at the displeasing photo below:
