After Contest Announcement Backfires, The Philly Zoo Lets Everyone Know Their Baby Gorilla Won’t Be Named That

That right there is the face of a baby gorilla who learned he wouldn’t be named Harambe.

By now you know that a baby gorilla was born at the Philadelphia Zoo and that the zoo made the foolhardy announcement there would be a naming contest.

It was probably always going to be one where they preselected a batch of four names and let people vote, and not a fucking free for all, but they didn’t say that, and so Twitter erupted with Harambe-based suggestions.

Today, though, the Philadelphia Zoo made it clear. The baby will not be named Harambe.

I’m just glad I wasn’t the one who had to tell this little guy.

He looks devastated.

If you want to avenge this decision, buy our shit.
