It's since been removed but earlier today, visitors to the Breitbart aka "Trump News" site were greeted with a large picture of Harambe, the 17 year-old gorilla put down by a zookeeper in late May of this year after a toddler crawled into his enclosure.

The picture was used to illustrate the site's top story about Trump's birtherism press conference bait and switch. (screenshot source)



Since his death, Harambe as a meme has been used by a numerous people in a variety of ways but of particular note are the instances where Harambe has appeared in racially denigrating memes and attacks.



Back in June, a high school teacher in Louisiana was fired after posting one such meme on Facebook:

Teacher Compares First Lady to Harambe:



SNL comedienne Leslie Jones has been the subject of harassment by alt-right trolls on Twitter using Harambe. Here's some alt-right cheerleading of the Twitter attacks from The Ralph Retort:

Ghostbusters Star Leslie Jones Has Epic Twitter Meltdown, Goes Full Harambe!

A little under three weeks ago, Leslie Jones website was hacked, she was doxed and of course Harambe memes and videos were uploaded to her hacked site:

Sickening hack attack on Leslie Jones: Hacker steals nude photos of SNL star and posts them on her website with racist memes and copies of her driving license

While the associations involved with the Harambe meme are many, sometimes contradictory and often not at all deliberately insulting to black people, the Breitbart staff knows the score. Their most recent article regarding Harambe?

I am so glad to see I am not the only one that equates Charlie Sheen and Trump together. They really have a way with words.

I think all these "Trolls" might be Democrat undercover operatives.

The Clinton/DNC operation hasn't got anything left but to smear under the table in a feeble and obvious way.

Clever losers they will be soon enough.

Poor Harambe...that was such a sad story. I remember seeing him at the Cincinnati zoo.

It looks like they put it (the gorilla photo---do we know it's Harambe?) up there because his expression looks like the press would feel after getting snookered.

Edit: This thread is a ridiculous reach. Hillary supporters are sounding scared and desperate...and with good reason!

I think you secretly love Trump more than us supporters. You do more threads on Trump than the rest of this membership combined.

Not really sure why you bother, the community here clearly favors Donald with a majority. It always make me smile to see yet another Trump thread with your name attached. I know you got love for my hero. You don't have to pretend


Harambe will be in our hearts forever, God bless that innocent gorilla.

Funny that's what Breitbart, the official "news" site of the Trump campaign called it. See their headline. Guess that was just more media spin?

Couldn't be further from the case. That's demonstrably untrue.

Doesn't bother me in the least. Would you stop speaking out against something or someone you thought was wrong simply because your opinions weren't popular?

I'm shocked you didn't go for the "Harambe Heritage not Hate!" argument.

Ok so let me see if I get this he's insinuating that Trump made a money out of the press. And somehow this means that do to the press somehow this equates to Obama being a monkey. My only question is you may want to rethink who is actually racist in this situation. Because frankly to make this kind of leap makes me wonder how you feel about black people. But that aside I'm sorry the term making a monkey out of someone isn't racist unless of course your a monkey. So if used a picture of a donkey is that still racist other than to donkeys I suppose??

Right back at you.

Not sure if you know, but ATS is not reddit. Stop posting clickbait threads with zero value in it.
