H&M Store In South Africa Trashed Over 'Coolest Monkey' Sweatshirt

But outrage had already gone international. And over the weekend, protesters aligned with South Africa’s Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) political party, which is a “radical, leftist, anti-capitalist and anti-imperialist movement,” according to their website, trashed a store at Sandton City Shopping Centre in Johannesburg.

Images uploaded by shoppers and journalists show protesters outside the store as well as images of the store after it was allegedly trashed by members of the group. 

In a statement to local radio station Jacaranda FM, the EFF’s Donald Mabunda said: 

According to News24 journalist Alex Mitchley, the group gave the store 24 hours to close its doors permanently. The group said they will continue to protest indefinitely if the store fails to do so. 

Mabunda claimed to Jacaranda FM that the store has since been closed adding that they are willing to sleep at the shopping center until they can meet with a H&M representative. 

Sandton City Shopping Centre issued this statement on Twitter: 

The incident was met with both acceptance and outrage online.
