Transcript of Harambe
Shortly after the recording of this video, the 400lb, 17 year old Western Lowland gorilla was shot and killed by a Zoo official who feared for the childs life
Rip Harambe ;(
Jokes, Memes and Gags
The order of the events, shown here ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
No one could have foretold the line of events that followed Harambe's shooting
Isiah Dickerson with his dad, Deonne
Results of Harambe's Death
Heated debate over whether or not Harambe posed a threat to the child
Who was to blame, the mother for her carelessness or the zoo, for enclosing gorillas in a pen a 3 year old can get through
Police considering pressing charges after 50.000 people signed a petition to do so
Isiah's parents recieving unjust amounts of criticism and being blamed for Harambe's death
What separates Harambe's death from an ordinary tragedy such as the killing of Cecil, the lion and what it has become today is the amount of recognition the event has gathered through dark jokes about how his death was unjustified and people simply hopping on the bandwagon.
Harambe was a simple gorilla who enjoyed simple pleasures in his brief but meaningful life. Personally, I believe he was not in the wrong and was simply paranoid and fearful because of the child in his enclosure and the panic that ensued afterwards. He did not mean harm to young Isiah, only to shelter him from the onslaught of panic the engulfed the gorilla pen when he fell in.
