LeBron James is among the voices, famous and otherwise, outraged by an H&M advertisement.

The ad shows a black child in a sweatshirt with the words, “Coolest monkey in the jungle.”

H&M has apologized and removed the image, but not before it circulated and was widely called out on social media as racist and inappropriate.

James posted a redone image of the ad, replacing the words on the sweatshirt with a crown. The James image also includes a crown on the boy’s head and the words “King of the world.”

On his Instagram post of the refreshed image, James said he sees a young king ready to take on the world and H&M “got us all wrong,” referring to the African-American community.
