The Harambe phenomenon — a cocktail of internet memes, genuine animal rights discourse and tongue-in-cheek humor — might soon make its way into the wardrobes of Ohio University students.
Someone designed and made available for purchase a "Bobcats for Harambe" t-shirt on customink.com. 35 people have ordered the shirt already, according to the web page where you can buy it.
The web page states $1 of each $15 purchase will be donated to a gorilla research fund. A post advertising the shirts in an OU Class of 2020 Facebook group says the same. The page also states the shirts, available in three colors, are only available until Sept. 16.
