People Are Petitioning For Harambe To Be Immortalized As A Pokémon

A fitting tribute.

Posted on

Movements have been started.


The petition was created on Wednesday and currently has more than 14,000 signatures.

Eric, the petition's creator who also runs a popular meme Facebook page, told BuzzFeed News he started the petition when he saw the parody fan art (pictured above) while scrolling through Facebook and thought it "would be really cool if that actually happened."

"Having Harambe immortalized as a Pokémon would be great," Eric said. "Not only for me, but for everyone who has been on this Harambe train ever since his passing."
