Cincinnati Zoo officials killed Harambe, a 17-year-old great ape in May after a 3-year-old boy fell into his enclosure.
On Monday night, the zoo deleted its social media accounts to prove once and for all that it does not find the continual Harambe jokes amusing in the slightest.
Over the weekend, the BBC reported that the zoo's Twitter account was hacked, in a perpetual continuation of the harassment that the zoo has faced in the aftermath of Harambe's death.
A zoo in the USA where a gorilla was killed earlier this year has deleted its Twitter account after constant online trolls about the animal's death, the media reported.
The Cincinnati Zoo has been contacted for comment.
The incredibly repetitive bullying has been stressful for the zoo's staff, something the zoo's director, Thane Maynard, reiterated yesterday when he said the staff was having trouble "healing" and moving on in the wake of the gorilla's death thanks mostly to a bunch of Twitter-based knuckleheads. He added that the internet's Harambe obsession was making it more hard for the zoo community to move on. "We are honoring Harambe by redoubling our gorilla conservation efforts and encouraging others to join us".
A variety of Harambe jokes were posted from Maynard's account, most of which included hashtags such as #AnimalRights #JusticeForHarambe and the infamous #*****OutForHarambe.
Though the accounts have been deleted, some users are still tweeting harsh messages at the zoo and there does not seem to be an end in sight to the outrage.
Animal rights activists and other critics said the shooting could have been avoided.
