The weekend drops H&M deal due to racist sweater ad with young black boy.

The Weekend who recently took a deal with H&M and was in various ads woke up this morning to see the picture above in an H&M ad that is obviously racist. Honestly whoever put this shoot together didn't find putting a young black boy in a hoodie labeling himself as a "monkey" wouldn't be offensive, really?..  

The Weekend took to twitter this morning tweeting 

"woke up this morning shocked and embarrassed by this photo. I'm deeply offended and will not be working with H&M anymore."
