Harambe jokes have officially been banned from campus at Clemson University… yes really. Beloved Harambe captured the hearts of many on the internet after being shot to death for dragging a child around his enclosure like a rag doll, forcing the Cincinnati Zoo to make the quick and controversial decision to shoot him, before he crushed the life out of the young boy.
Well, since the passing of the great Harambe, the internet has not let his legacy die. The Cincinnati Zoo was driven to the point of near insanity and deleted their twitter account after thousands of internet saviors flooded every one of their tweets with Harambe jokes and demands for gorilla justice.
Well, clearly…. someone doesn’t know how to take a joke. Clemson has gone so far as to BAN all references to Harambe from campus.
Campus Reform – A Clemson administrator sent an email to Resident Advisors (RAs) Friday instructing them to demand that freshman remove all Harambe references from dorm hallways and windows.
The administrator claimed Harambe’s death has been used to “add to rape culture” and can be “form of racism.” An RA further added that any student who disobeys these instructions will be “in trouble.”
“We are no longer allowing any reference to Harambe (or any other spelling) to be displayed on doors, halls, billboards, or windows,” the instructions state. “Harambe should not be displayed in a public place or a place that is viewed by the public.”
One Clemson freshmen leaked a screenshot to Campus Reform of an RA stating, “you cannot have any Harambe related thing up publicly after September 30th,” and threatening that point, “the individual/individuals will get in some trouble!”
