H&M closes all its stores in South Africa after protests

H&M stores were stormed after the company used an image of a black child to sell a sweatshirt that bared a racially-charged slogan.

H&M stores across South Africa were shuttered Saturday. Local media reported that destructive protesters had swarmed several locations. The protesters were reacting to an ad in which a black child wore a sweatshirt that bore the slogan "coolest monkey in the jungle." It appeared on the British version of the Swedish retailer's online store.
