Multinational clothing-retail company Hennes & Mauritz (H&M)is receiving yet another backlash for not styling the hair of a black child model before a photoshoot and publishing the pictures with many people see as bad hair.
The multinational clothing-retail company recently released its new line of fall sweaters and sweatshirts, featuring a diverse lineup of models. One of their models was a black girl but unlike the other models, her hair was not styled.
A lot of black people are very upset about the images. The majority felt it was intentional and was aimed at the natural hair community. But some blamed the child’s parents for not styling their daughter’s hair or insisting the company styles her hair properly before the shoot.
The last time H&M came underfire was last year after the multimillion company featured a black child model promoting a hoodie with the inscription, “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle“. 9 hours later H&M took down all the pictures of the kids because of heavy backlash from people.
