G-Eazy, Instagram, and Memes: G- Eazy Cuts Ties With H&M After The 'Coolest Monkey' Viral Image @balleralert G- Eazy Cuts Ties With H&M After The ‘Coolest Monkey’ Viral Image - Blogged by @tktrinidad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HM has been receiving backlash after they posted a black boy wearing a hoodie that said “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle." The same day of the photo going viral, TheWeeknd cut ties with H&M. GEazy was working on a new clothing with H&M that was supposed to come out on March 1st, but he decided to cut ties with the company as well. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ G-Eazy posted on Instagram saying, “Over the past months I was genuinely excited about launching my upcoming line and collaboration with H&M.Unfortunately, after seeing the disturbing image yesterday, my excitement over our global campaign quickly evaporated, and I’ve decided at this time our partnership needs to end.Whether an oblivious oversight or not, it’s truly sad and disturbing that in 2018, something so racially and culturally insensitive could pass by the eyes of so many (stylist, photographer, creative and marketing teams) and be deemed acceptable.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ G-Eazy also posted a drawing of the boy wearing a hoodie saying “Coolest King in the World” along with his Instagram post. H&M has since removed the image from their website and issued an apology. Hopefully, they will be looking to hiring someone who is familiar with black culture among others.

Goals, Life, and Love: AY FOCUSED ON YOUR OWN GOALS. The year 2018 is here, and if you’re a goal-setter, you’ve probably already set your New Year’s resolutions (or have at least thought about them.) - Here are a few steps toward achieving our goals for 2018!: ✔️Get clear on what you want. The first step in achieving our New Year’s goals is to become crystal clear on precisely what we want. Close your eyes for a moment, and visualize the life you desire: Who and what are in this image? How do you look in this new picture? More important, how do you feel when you see this life in front of you? What do you ultimately want to feel? With your eyes closed, experience that feeling. ✔️Love yourself! Reaching our goals doesn’t happen by beating ourselves up, or judging and criticizing ourselves. Transformation comes from the love, compassion, kindness and patience we offer ourselves. Just like a child doesn’t thrive or learn from hostility, neither do we. We learn and grow from patience and support. So, be kind and gentle with yourself as you progress toward your goals. When you slip up, tell yourself, “I’ll do better tomorrow.” We don’t have to be perfect to start loving ourselves; we deserve love just as we are now. ✔️Self-Awareness. If we are unaware of our thoughts, feelings, belief systems, likes, dislikes and fears, then we are missing a key element to initiating change in our lives. When we spend time noticing the internal dialogue we’re having with ourselves, we can learn critical behaviors that are preventing and sabotaging our growth and success. ✔️Gratitude. Gratitude is the gateway to peace and happiness. It is the starting point to creating change. A grateful heart feels love and joy, which draws more love and joy into our lives. A simple gratitude practice of writing 5 to 10 things daily that you’re grateful for can begin to shift your mindset and actually make you feel better too. ✔️Set realistic and achievable goals, and take actionable steps. In setting goals and intentions, dream BIG, but realistically. Don’t set insurmountable goals to accomplish within a year if you doubt you can reach them. - I hope this really helps and you achieve everything you want! - 2018 success goals millionairementor
