On Saturday morning H&M stores across Gauteng turned red after a number of EFF protesters reacted to the controversial H&M ad which had a black child wearing a sweatshirt with the slogan "coolest monkey in the jungle.

The entire world had already condemned the H&M ad with various artists recreating the ad with positive artworks that represented the child in a much more positive light.

But whilst the world fought H&M with their words, EFF protestors decided to take their anger to the streets and vandalized various H&M stores in Sandton City, Menlyn, Clearwater Mall and Mall of Africa.

South Africans debated on whether the vandalism of these stores would create any form of solution to the problem of racism that has not only affected South Africa but many parts of the world as well. 

Whilst some citizens supported EFF's act against H&M....other South Africans criticized the political party very harshly.

Pearl Thusi, asked an open-ended question in response to EFF's national spokesperson - Mbuyiseni Ndlozi's unapologetic tweet about the whole matter. A clear indication that she was less than impressed with the political party's actions over the weekend.
