The mother of the Child Model who was used by Swedish clothing-retail line, H&M to push a hoodie with a racial slur has spoken out for the first time since the issue blew up.
A lot of people have wondered why the parent(s)/guardian(s) of the child saw the hoodie and still permitted the company to go ahead with the promotion.
Speaking via her Facebook page (Terry Mango), the mother explained that the top was one out of many the her son tried on and there is really no untoward thought involved. She later revealed that she does not think that way and did not see any issue with the hoodie when he was trying it on.

She has since gone private on her Facebook account while re-posting photos from other accounts condemning the act on her Instagram page:
