It ain’t cooning if the check clears.
As we all know by now, the H&M fiasco has received a ton of backlash. The Weekend decided to end his collaboration with the brand. Rapper G-Eazy has even pulled out of negotiations to collaborate on a line with the company. Black Twitter unleashed all hell, and media outlets from USA Today to CNN covered the debacle. There were even rumors circulating that Diddy was interested in offering the model a contract with his clothing company Sean John. Well, all of the outrage appears to have been for nothing.
According to an Instagram post from @youneedateabreak, the mother (Terry Mango) of the young model is unbothered. Check out the post:
The post is allegedly the receipts directly from Terry. Terry’s rebuttal:
“I’m the mum… and this is one of hundreds of outfits my son has modelled…stop crying Wolf all the time….unnecessary issue here..Get over it”
She responded to a user on IG, stating “That’s my son. I’ve been to all the photo shoots, and this is not an exception. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about this.”
“I really don’t understand but not coz I’m choosing not to but because its not my way of thinking, sorry.”
Well, that’s disappointing. I’m never one for bashing other women, so I’ll propose this. Perhaps she was pressured by H&M to respond publicly. Or maybe she is just that out of touch that she doesn’t see the issue. Either way, if she isn’t bothered than we shouldn’t be either. It’s her choice to take the money and run. Let’s save our outrage for people and things that really matter. I just hope Diddy sees this new information before he starts handing out deals…
How do you feel about the mother’s alleged response?

Mom Gets Criticized for Showing Toddlers Kissing on The Mouth
Mother of 3, Ashlee Muhammed receives backlash for her parenting skills, due to a viral video of her twin boys kissing on the lips.
Although most people seemed to think that the video showed an innocent sign of affection, others were not feeling the brotherly love.
One follower called Muhammed’s parenting skills reckless, despite her intended message.
Majority of the negative comments were received by black men.
They accused Muhammed of highlighting perversion and sexuality amongst toddlers. However, Muhammed defends her video.
She states that “The World needs more love like this”.
What are your thoughts, did she take brotherly love too far?
In the African-American community, it seems like we’re so afraid to teach boys to show affection because we’re in fear of them being gay. However, that’s a disturbing label to put on toddlers.
Do you think this warranted the drag session she received in the comments? She decided not to take the video down despite its controversy.
Money Moves: New Year’s Financial Checklist Part 2
Thanks for checking out Part 1, and we’re back with Part 2! Let’s get to it!
Do you have savings? This may sound like a silly question, but it may surprise you. Did you know that 57% of Americans have less than $1000 in savings? Are you included in that group? If so, don’t feel bad. You can turn this around. The old saying is “plan for a rainy day”. Well my new saying is “plan for a tsunami”. An emergency fund of $1000 is a great place to start for savings. This will come in handy to pay for unexpected car repairs or medical bills, or an array of actual “emergencies”. $1000 may seem like a lot, but if you could put away $20 a week for one year you can attain this goal.
After you have allocated your emergency fund, you can focus on your general savings. A great way to save is to set savings goals. Do you want to buy a new house? Are you in the market for a new car? Perhaps you’ve been eyeing a new designer bag or shoes. Whatever it may be, set savings goals and be diligent about achieving them.
Also, did the holidays hit you hard? Have you been dying to take that trip to Dubai? Creating a holiday fund account can ease the unnecessary stress of Christmas shopping, and reduce the risk of going into debt. Summer will be here before you know it. If you start saving now in a vacation account, you can take that dream vacation and do it in style.
Stay tuned for Part 3! Have questions? We love to help! Leave a comment or for more specific questions, email me at [email protected]
