H&M - Hennes & Mauritz AB - a Swedish multinational clothing-retail company was involved in a race row earlier this week when a photo depicting a black child modelling a sweatshirt with the slogan "coolest monkey in the jungle", sparked widespread outrage on social media, with local and worldwide celebrities blasting the retailer.
Activists in South Africa have trashed H&M stores in protest at the clothing retailer's advert for its "coolest monkey in the jungle" hoodie that featured a black child model.
"I'm deeply offended and will not be working with [H&M] anymore", he tweeted.
Violence spilled over in at least four malls as the latest race row to engulf the Swedish brand escalated, forcing the police police to fire rubber bullets at protesters.
The Menlyn store was shut after it was completely trashed by the angry protesters. Some held signs that said "H&M say "hello" to coolest monkeys" and "away with H&M racist tendencies".
H&M stores in other areas are reported to have been closed, and police are monitoring the situation.
Social media users also reported protests at other stores in Johannesburg and Pretoria.
The wave of the mass store invasions, which had clearly been well organised in advance, began shortly after the stores opened for Saturday trading, with pictures and videos of the chaos lit up social media.
"We have a responsibility to be aware of and attuned to all racial and cultural sensitivities - and we have not lived up to this responsibility this time".
"This incident is accidental in nature, but this doesn't mean we don't take it extremely serious or understand the upset and discomfort it has caused".
The firm's spokesperson, Amelia-May Woudstra, said the company was sorry for the ad, "We sincerely apologize for offending customers with an image of a printed hooded top that was published on selected global online channels".
"We will now be doing everything we possibly can to prevent this from happening again in future. Get over it", Terry Mango wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post.
