Cincinnati Zoo Begs Internet to Stop With Harambe Memes

The internet is full of assholes. I should know, I’m on here. By asking them to stop, the Cincinnati Zoo has only ensured Harambe’s meme longevity. Those poor fools.

Ever since that child climbed into Harambe’s enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo, only to be picked up by the gorilla and get him shot, the internet has been obsessed with the dead gorilla. People have even voted him for president. What’s wrong with y’all?

These memes are out of control. Look at this:


Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard laid down this: 

“We are not amused by the memes, petitions and signs about Harambe. Our zoo family is still healing, and the constant mention of Harambe makes moving forward more difficult for us. We are honoring Harambe by redoubling our gorilla conservation efforts and encouraging others to join us.” 

The internet is full of salty bitches that love shaking their salt into other people’s wounds. Probably at least 15% of the people reading this just jerked it after reading that quote.

There was even a counter-petition started against all of the petitions by WCPO-TV web editor James Leggate, because white people don’t have anything better to do, I guess. He wrote:

“At first, the petitioners had good intentions. But then the goofuses of the Internet hopped on the Harambe train for their jollies, and it has gotten out of control.”

Yo, you fuckin think? Look at this.
