On Saturday a four-year old boy fell into a gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo. The video of the terrifying experience, as the boy was tossed around by the animal, went viral quickly.

Sadly the gorilla, named Harambe, was shot and killed by zoo officials to save the life of the child, sparking outrage on social media.

The most ludicrous of the objections came from those who actually believed the gorilla was killed because of racism.

Conservative author and commentator Mark Dice uncovered some of the most outrageous tweets, including a slew that referred to the child as a “white boy” and one that called the killing an act of “white privilege.”

As Dice pointed out in his video the race of the child was still unknown.

UPDATE: It has been reported by several news organizations that the child is, in fact, black.

Others found the blame on race as ridiculous as it sounds.
And many believed the child in question was actually black.

CORRECTION: The age of the boy was incorrectly reported in earlier posts. It has been confirmed that the child is 3 and not 4-years-old.
