Man Dies From a DIY Harambe Penis Tattoo

One Man Took His Obsession with Harambe Too Far

If you thought the "Dicks out for Harambe" craze had ended in 2016, think again. Just a few short days ago, a 23-year-old man named Richard O'Connor passed away from septic shock in a Boston hospital after tattooing a portrait of the deceased gorilla Harambe onto the head of his penis. O'Connor was fascinated by the passing of the gorilla Harambe, who was killed in May of 2016 after a child fell into his enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. However, O'Connor took this viral meme to the next level which quickly turned into a tattoo nightmare.
