You may have noticed Harambe showing up across the Internet over the past couple weeks, and now a group of local students are honoring the gorilla with their student ID pictures.

Tiffany Nogoy tweeted out a photo of student ID pictures featuring Tiffany and her friends. The girls are wearing shirts with "Ha" "Ram" "Be" and "1999-2016" written on the shirts. All are seniors at Troy High School.

The tweet has been retweeted more than 1,500 times and liked more than 4,500 times so far.

Harambe was shot and killed in May to protect a 3-year-old boy who had entered its exhibit.

The Cincinnati Zoo said it is not amused by the Harambe memes, saying the zoo family is still healing.
