Many people are upset because of a recent incident that occurred at the Cincinnati Zoo.  In gist, a young boy (3 year old) was so intrigued by the gorillas, that he wanted to go be by them.  He climbed over a 3 foot barrier, then snaked his way through 4 feet of bushes before plunging 15 feet into a moat.  If you want to see a visual illustration, click the story posted by a Cincinnati news station. A gorilla named Harambe came to the moat with the boy, and in the end, staff had to kill the gorillas to ensure the boy was safe.

This incident has the internet blazing with fiery opinions that ranges from forgiveness, fines and death to the parents involved. It even spawned a hashtag (#JusticeForHarambe). Strangest of all is that a particular station blamed the father of the child that fell into the enclosure, despite the father not even attending the zoo outing! 
Facebook definitely trended with many memes, opinions and even videos to give their two cents in the matter.

You know Twitter was not going to be left out of the fray with people with very specific ideology.  

Sadly, you know that you have a certain segment of society that couldn't help but to bring race into the mix.

Despite this being the first time many people heard about a Black child falling into ANY zoo exhibit, some confused people still wanted torches and pitchforks immediatelyIf you are one of those hateful or confused individuals that would like to know if any White children ever fell into a gorilla enclosure, google is but a keyboard stroke away!  

Also, the internet being just that, the internet, this has given creative people an avenue to once again show that you can find humor in anything.  No matter what side you are on, just remember, life still goes on, and we all need to find a way to peacefully coexist so we can lessen tragedies of various natures around this world.

As always, if you find some that you want placed on here, send them to me.
