The administration at Clemson University is banning references to Harambe, the gorilla who was shot dead at the Cincinnati Zoo back in May.
Since his death, Harambe has become an unstoppable internet meme spawning numerous images, jokes and videos in his honour. Why? Because that's how the internet works.

Now, Clemson University is saying he promotes racism and rape culture.
According to Campus Reform, an email was sent to Resident Advisors instructing them to demand that freshman remove all Harambe references from dorm hallways and windows.
The statement said that, “If residents are asking why they have to take them down you can share that there was a report from an individual about a meme being offensive and bias [sic] in nature and as a result all Harambe references are no longer allowed within our community.”

Graduate Community Director Brooks Artis told one student that there is one exception. Harambe-related decorations are will allowed inside dorm rooms “where people would have to be invited into the space to see said decoration.”
Are far as the incident that started all this, no info has been shared. Artis told a student, “although I (nor your RA) can share the incident that was reported [that] resulted resulted in this change, we have to remember that we all come different backgrounds and have different identities that shape how we are affected by different references.”

Students can still say the word 'Harambe', but according to Artis, “While we are not banning the word, I want to encourage you to think about what you are saying and how someone who may be a different gender, race, culture, or sexuality than you may take the comment.”
The mindlessness of universities never cease. The space space crybaby cuckoldry continues to mold our future into a castrated fountain of tears.
