What happened?

H&M is pulling a child’s sweatshirt with the words “coolest monkey in the jungle” after social media users noticed that it was modeled by a black child on the clothing company’s website.

How did the company respond?

“We are deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print,” H&M said in a statement.

On today’s show, Doc and Kal talked about this story and wondered when our society will move past thinking a kid’s shirt with some goofy text is actual racism.
