Harambe-Shaped Cheeto Nearly Pulls in Six Digits At Auction

Did you think you’d seen the last of Harambe, the gorilla who was shot and killed when a child entered his pen at the Cincinnati Zoo last summer?

You hadn’t. You never will.

But anyway, someone just bid $99,700.00 on eBay for a Cheeto that looks like him. Or, rather, they bid on a Cheeto that looks like Harambe used to look before he was killed by the zoo.

Harambe has become almost a folk hero online, where his story and associated memes spread for months following his death. eBay user valuestampsinc was among those who were touched by the story of the slain zoo animal. This is the story of the Cheeto they found:

I opened up a bag of Flamin Hot Cheetos and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheetos that looks like Harambe the gorilla.

Inspiring!

According to USA Today, the auction was set to end this morning at 3:45. Sadly, the listing now appears to have been removed.
