Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) members have staged protests outside various H&M stores around Gauteng against the retailer’s monkey sweater advert.
The retailer had used a black child to model a sweatshirt with the slogan “coolest monkey in the jungle”.
H&M later removed the advert and apologised for any offense caused.
Videos show EFF members singing and dancing outside stores in Sandton, Menlyn and Mall of the South.
