If Harambe were alive, the thought of him would be dead. We've all seen the memes and the jokes, but this is a serious matter. Harambe was so much more than a gorilla, and every day, I think about him. He was more than a gorilla to me, he was a friend. Now, as we try to give him the proper sendoff, Cincinnati Zoo, the assassins, are still at large. Not only are they free, but they're telling us to stop honoring him. This is what Harambe would have wanted. In tragic times, there are only so many ways to grieve. The whole world has chosen memes and internet jokes as the primary method. However, Cincinnati Zoo, which obviously is no longer grieving, is trying to stop us. They have called our jokes offensive and stupid. But Harambe would not have had it any other way. This friend, this gorilla, symbolizes unity. The country is able to get together over a significant loss. A small bit of Harambe lives on with us, whether it be in memes or not, and no one should take that away.


Harambe jokes are not offensive because harambe deserved to die cause he was gonna hurt and innocent child and memes and jokes are just plain funny
Debate Round No. 1


You listed con but the argument is not whether or not he should have died, it is whether or not the memes and jokes are offensive

I don't understand did you personally know the gorilla? how is the gorilla your friend? He was shot and killed and that's the end of it, the Harambe memes are jokes and not to be taken seriously

Other memes have been taken away by the Regressive Left and the Alt-Right and their stupid anti-equality, feminism and misogyny. Harambe is all we, the egalitarians, have.
