Cincinnati Zoo and Harambe Anniversary

The Zoo that worked as a home for the (in)famous Harambe hasn’t really made any statements or public events planned to commemorate the gorilla. As it has been one-year anniversary the zoo’s dangerous-animal response team concluded the life of the animal. After a 3-year-old boy fell into the gorilla enclosure last May 28th, where the 17-year-old Harambe took him. Leading to a delicate situation that led to team shooting him down.

This obviously led to global mourning, criticism and somehow satires that made him a pop culture phenomenon. Keeping Harambe alive through several internet jokes, comments, and memes. Regarding the Zoo, they’re looking ahead to an expanded Gorilla World exhibit in June. The Cincinnati Zoo’s latest sensation has been Fiona, a hippo born prematurely in January. Zoo officials say the strong positive response towards Fiona has helped a healing process after Harambe’s death.

The internet blowing up

Obviously, the anniversary of Harambe’s death was of big importance for trolls and the internet jokers. As the late gorilla becoming a part of internet culture. According to Google Trends, Harambe was the No. 1 meme in the United States last year. Even 5% of Americans voted for Harambe in a poll ahead of the presidential election last November. Now, on its anniversary even a “telepathic animal communicator,” called Pea Horsley has contacted Harambe. Something that we don’t know still if it’s a joke or not.

On Sunday, Twitter users came together to remember the late gorilla, also in a humorous way. Sharing countless tributes and memes. “Harambe died a year ago today and the whole world went to hell since”. Another added, “One year ago today, a legend was taken from us… Rest easy champ, we miss you Harambe”. Many users also left comments on the Cincinnati Zoo Twitter, replying to every post with a comment regarding Harambe.
