After dropping multiple collections with the brand, The Weeknd has decided to cut ties with H&M due to the release of an undeniably distasteful hoodie from the company.

The garment that is rightfully under scrutiny features the words “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” across the front, shown sported by a young boy.

“Woke up this morning shocked and embarrassed by this photo,” The Weeknd tweeted. “I’m deeply offended and will not be working with @hm anymore…”

Following backlash, H&M has replaced the image of the child wearing the hoodie.
