Protesters have stormed H&M stores in South Africa, pushing over mannequins and tearing down racks of clothing after one of the retail giant’s ads was branded “racist”.

H&M became embroiled in a racism controversy after an advertisement showing a black child model wearing a hoodie that said “coolest monkey in the jungle” was posted to the clothing chain’s website.
