'STOP TALKING ABOUT HARAMBE OUR DEAD GORILLA' - ZOO PLEADS

I am also guilty of still talking about Harambe though not with memes. The very first day my girls came home for holiday, we went Online searching for videos of Harambe and the little boy. After watching, I told them how animal rights activists reacted after Harambe was shot and killed and... the stories won't just end.  joining other online voices in asking for the joke to come to an end, below is what the zoo says:

‘We are not amused by the memes,’  
People should stop making memes and jokes about Harambe, the gorilla that was shot after a child fell in his enclosure, according to the Cincinnati Zoo where he lived.
At the end of May this year, a three-year-old climbed into the gorilla enclosure at the zoo in Ohio. After the child was grabbed by Harambe, a zoo worker shot and killed the gorilla, because officials were afraid that the boy would be killed.
Since then, Harambe has become memorialised in more or less sincere memes, jokes and petitions. Those take various forms, and come from various parts of the internet and from across the political spectrum.
