JOHANNESBURG – The H&M clothing store at Sandton City has been trashed on Saturday morning.
This as the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) protested at the northern Johannesburg mall this morning in protest against a racist sweater ad.
That @hm nonsense of a clothing store is now facing consequences for its racism. All rational people should agree that the store should not be allowed to continue operating in South Africa. Well done to Fighters who physically confronted racism. pic.twitter.com/cgdedYGoOj
