H&M apologizes after ad slammed for racism

H&M says it's sorry after getting slammed for a racist online ad. It showed a black boy wearing a sweatshirt that says "Coolest Monkey in the Jungle".

The sweatshirt was also available in other colors with other animals like a tiger. H&M chose white boys to model those sweatshirts.

The retailer says it sincerely apologizes and removed the image from its website. But people are still ticked. The Weeknd says he's not working with H&M anymore.

On the Factor to discuss the ad is brand specialist Faisal Jayed and Eden James with Starting Line-up Enterprises.
