Gone, but not forgotten … as long as Sixers superstar center Joel Embiid has his way.
On the one-year anniversary of Harambe's death, Embiid remembered the slain gorilla on Instagram with the caption: "Gone but never forgotten #RIPHarambe."
The Instagram post was accompanied by a picture of Harambe along with a longer message and acquired over 22,700 likes within the first 37 minutes of its posting.

There are some factual errors in Embiid's post, however. The picture stated that Harambe "would've been 18 today," which was posted Sunday.
Harambe's birthday was May 27, 1999. He would have been 18 years and one day old Sunday.
This was not Embiid's first participation in the Harambe Internet meme.

Regardless, the tragic killing of Harambe, a popular male gorilla at Cincinnati Zoo, sparked outrage and then Harambe became an Internet meme.
