After nearly two weeks of celebrities stepping up, public outrage and the company undergoing massive scrutiny, it looks like a resolution has finally been found for the once-was clothing giant... at least for now.\nWhether it be thanks to celebrities like: The Weeknd, Diddy, and Lebron James, because of thousands on social media wanting to boycott the company, or simply because they've realized they made a massive mistake, H&M has gone ahead and decided to hire a "diversity leader".\npic.twitter.com/3gHiSwwblE\n— H&M (@hm) January 16, 2018\nThe Stockholm-based retailer repeated that the entire incident was unintentional; that if anything it "demonstrates so clearly how big [their] responsibility is as a global brand."\nThe scandal, most recently, has seen tensions boil near retailers in South Africa. Protesters raided stores over the weekend, ending with police using force to clear the crowds outside a store in Boksburg, South Africa. Stores in Johannesburg were trashed: mannequins knocked over, displays wrecked, and clothing rails and shelves being pushed over.\n.. Meanwhile, at H&M 🤦🏾♂️ #HM #SouthAfrica #Protesters\n\nA post shared by Earthquake (@therealearthquake) on Jan 13, 2018 at 11:28am PST\nFor the safety of employees and the public, stores in South Africa have been temporarily closed. H&M has announced that the stores will be re-opened when the situation is re-assessed at a later date. For now, the hiring of a global diversity leader looks to be some light at the end of a dark tunnel.
