After seeing shots of the little boy in that heinous H&M shirt that declared him the “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle,” I almost immediately began to see images of him remixed and reimagined. All day, new looks came down my timeline—not of this little boy in a shirt that degraded him, but with spinning crowns and the words “Coolest King in the World” (or “Coolest Kid in This Racist Ass H&M Catalog”) on his chest.

It was obvious that that tone-deaf decision by the Swedish company was no match for a wall of black boy joy.
