Black boy in racist H&M hoodie ad appears on Angola wall painting

The black boy in the middle of a ‘racist’ advert by Swedish designer H&M continues to make news headlines. He has been spotted in Angola’s capital Luanda.

Not physically though, the now-viral photo of the boy in his green hoodie has inspired a graffiti art on an ancient building in Luanda – the most expensive global capital for expatriates.

The photo was shared by an Angolan photographer on Instagram. Rui Sergio Afonso attached fourth hashtags to his post. #luanda #angola #candongueiro #thecoolestmonkeyinthejungle.

The post has raked over 160 likes within four hours of having posted it. Commenters have hailed the artist behind it. “Is this real? Did someone paint this on the wall – quick work!!” one person posted.

After the social media backlash that greeted the H&M advert that clad the boy in a hoodie with the inscription “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle,” most artists have moved to edit the inscription.
