Harambe jerseys banned by NFL Shop

Harambe, America’s favorite gorilla who was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo over the summer, has become one of the greatest internet memes of the year. And it is showing no sign of slowing down.

From schools using the gorilla’s image to recruit players to Snapchat filters, Harambe has become common place in the world of sports.

Now, it seems like there are a number of fans that want to honor the gorilla, but the NFL won’t allow them to. ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that NFL Shop bans fans from customizing jerseys with the gorilla’s name on the back.

However, the NHL team Minnesota Wild let everyone know they could buy a hockey jersey to Harambe. So, if you are really desperate for a custom Harambe jersey to honor your fallen furry friend, the NHL is your go-to league.

NFL really does stand for the “No Fun League.”
