Eazy pulls out of partnership with H&M over racially insensitive image

Many people criticized the image on social media, calling it racist. When you look at us make sure you see royalty and super natural God sent glory!

However according to Metro, Diddy is thought to be planning to hire the boy as a model for his own clothing brand, Sean John. Diddy posted an image with a sweatshirt revised to read "Coolest king in the world". "Anything else is disrespectful". The singer-songwriter, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, previously teamed up with the Swedish fashion retailer to release special edition menswear collections. He launched his debut line with H&M in 2017.

"This image has now been removed from all H&M channels and we apologize to anyone this may have offended", H&M spokeswoman Anna Eriksson told CNN.

R&B/Pop star The Weeknd posted on Twitter that he will be pulling out of any future work with the clothing giant "woke up this morning shocked and embarrassed by this photo". "I'm deeply offended and will not be working with @hm anymore". "We agree with all the criticism that this has generated - we have got this wrong and we agree that, even if unintentional, passive or casual racism needs to be eradicated wherever it exists", the company said.

Oil tanker collides with vessel off China coast, 32 crew members missing
The 274-meter-long oil tanker SANCHI , owned by an Iranian shipping company, was heading to South Korea with its cargo. The AP reports that an official in Iran's Oil Ministry said 30 of the tanker's 32 crew members were Iranians.

"We are deeply sorry that the picture was taken", H&M said.

While he's announced the end of their partnership, pressure seems to be building for Nicki Minaj, who appeared in recent ads for the brand and completed collaborations, to either speak out or quit too.

We have taken down the image and we have removed the garment from sale. This is without any doubt. We are now investigating internally to avoid this happening again.
