Fan Launches Petition to Change The Bengals’ name to The ‘Cincinnati Harambes’
Let me start this off by saying R.I.P to a real one.
Just a few days ago, Boston College QB Patrick Towles dedicated his upcoming season to ‘Harambe’, the fallen gorilla from the Cincinnati Zoo that was taken way too soon.
Now, a Bengals fan is hoping his favorite team would honor that lovable gorilla by changing their name from the Cincinnati Bengals to the Cincinnati Harambes. Julian Ortiz of Gilbertsville, Pa. took to Change.org to write up a petition and as of 12:46 PM (ET), the petition has over 8,400 signatures and counting.
“The Cleveland Browns named their team after a former Coach who made a great impact on their city so why cant the Bengals do it as well in honor of a hero who made an impact on their city too! #DicksoutforHarambe”
