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.

Killing an endangered gorilla at a zoo for a white boy’s safety is white privilege. If the boy was black they would’ve found a tranquilizer.

That gorilla was taken from it’s homeland, put in captivity, and then killed to preserve White life. That sounds familiar.

Others found the blame on race as ridiculous as it sounds.
And many believed the child in question was actually black.
Only #BlackLivesMatter retards and social justice warriors could blame a black boy falling into a Gorilla pit on white privilege. ???

If the zoo handlers hesitated & that beast mauled the child. Folks on here would scream racism to the highest order. Obama would comment.

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.
