In the midst of H&M receiving tons of backlash for their recently removed ad of a young African-American boy wearing a hoodie that read, “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle”, Diddy is reportedly offering him a $1 million modeling contract with Sean John.

If you happened to miss the ad, here’s a look at it below:

According to HotNewHipHop, there’s no word whether or not the boy has accepted the offer and Diddy’s people have not commented on the matter.

Diddy was one of many celebrities to give support via social media to the boy, Pusha T, T.I., Lebron James, and YG are a few that voiced their opinion.

H&M has since apologized for the ad publicly.

Will H&M be able to come back from this? Do you think all this will blow over eventually?
