For page about the event of the shooting itself, see: Shooting of Harambe The Gorilla

Harambe was a gorilla.

After being put in a zoo he was shot to death when a toddler climbed into his enclosure and he was deemed threatening in his interactions with the boy.

After his death, Harambe became a popular meme.

Clemson University banned the public display of Harambe images because they said he is associated with rape and racism.

In the wake of the ensuing controversy school officials loosened the ban.

In the wake of Harambe's death, people have begun a Dicks out for Harambe movement in song, words, and action.

Calls for a parallel tits out for Harambe campaign have been less widespread.
