Even Netflix Is Getting In on the ‘Gorilla Channel’ Fun

The Gorilla Channel has taken America by storm.

It all began when a parody excerpt of Michael Wolff‘s tell-all book Fire and Fury went viral.

The completely fictional, non-existent portion of Wolff’s book shares details of President Trump’s rough adjustment to the White House and how upset he was to find out that he no longer had access to the “Gorilla Channel.”

However, The Gorilla Channel caught fire on social media and while many found humor in how believable the excerpt is, some people actually fell for the it.

Now, Netflix is having fun with it.

“Please stop calling our customer service hotline to ask if we have The Gorilla Channel,” Netflix tweeted it its followers.

Animal Planet also weighed in, saying what someone would expect to find on The Gorilla Channel.

The Twitter account that posted the fake Fire and Fury excerpt even changed its display name to try and tame the gorilla frenzy:

It appears it didn’t work.
