EXCEPT YOU TELL ME THEY DIDN’T GIVE THEIR APPROVAL…COS LAST TIME I CHECKED MINORS DON’T GIVE CONSENT WITH ISSUES LIKE THIS! ….. it doesn’t make sense to me that yall are attacking h&m and not Asking what Kind of parents allowed This?? I’ll tell you what type….MONEY LOVING PARENTS…So please everyone calm down a notch unless you are bringing the PARENTS into this OR YOU URSELF WILL TURN DOWN A HEAVY SUM IF YOU WERE IN THEIR SHOES #MyOpinion
