Bidding for a Cheeto shaped like Harambe, the gorilla shot and killed last year at a Cincinnati zoo, reached almost $100,000 on eBay Monday afternoon.
eBay user valuestampsinc posted a Flamin’ Hot Cheeto for sale that they thought looked like a mini version of Harambe, that is to say, covered in powdery cheese. Bidding for the Harambe Cheeto began at just $11.99 on January 28. A bidding war quickly started but ended Tuesday morning with a winning bid of $99,900.
Harambe became an Internet sensation last summer after he was shot by handlers for dragging around a small child that leaped into his enclosure.
