A Cincinnati high school took the Harambe thing a little too far this weekend

Despite the fact that it’s been over three months since Harambe the gorilla was killed by Cincinnati Zoo authorities to protect a small child that fell into his cage, people just won’t let the story go. Harambe has become an internet sensation, to the point that the Cincinnati Zoo had to shut down its social media accounts and former UK players are dedicating their seasons to him; however, this past weekend, a Cincinnati high school may have taken the meme a little too far.

According to a report on Reddit, there were two Harambe “tributes” at a high school football game in Cincinnati this past weekend. First, someone dressed in a gorilla outfit ran on to the field dragging a child and later on, a second gorilla ran on to the field chasing a person dressed in a banana costume holding a sign that read, “RIP Harambe.”

Hey, instead of making a mockery of the whole thing, let’s really let the gorilla (and all these dumb memes) rest in peace. It’s well past time.

    It blows my mind how this many people can still be SO streamed at that “controversial” decision to shoot the gorilla. It would have been just as controversial to many people if the zoo staff had waited the situation out, just hoping for a positive outcome. Both choices had their negatives. But the one ultimately chosen by the staff had HUMAN safety in mind. And who could fault them for that?

      too bad the parents did not have the safety of their own child in mind. I can guarantee my kid would not be in there with a gorilla if I am with them as I keep my eyes on him anytime we are in places with lots of people, cars, etc. Of course I don’t facebook or live with my cell phone in my face 24/7 like alot of the world now days.

      99% of the people online making noise about the fact that they shot him are doing it because they think it’s funny. I hope this information helps.
