Harambe didn’t immediately attack the kid nor showed any signs that he was going to but the officials thought if they used a tranquilizer dart, the ape might become agitated and attack the child.
The internet erupted and many felt that great injustice was done to the Gorilla. Harambe was soon converted into a meme and started trending and it’s still going strong.
However, it seems, U.S presidential candidate Donald J Trump is aware of his popularity and has an opinion about his own about the entire situation.
If you send a message to his Facebook page inquiring about Harambe, you’ll get an automated reply from him.
