This is too funny!!

Although the wild feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West may have died down a bit — well, for now, at least — somebody is STILL fighting over Swift's "memorial" graffiti tag, and the changes continue to be hilarious!

If you remember from two days ago, an Australian street artist named LushSux created a "memorial" to Swift on a wall to commemorate her notable feud with Yeezy.

Then, on Thursday we told you that the mural had already been changed to a gorilla from SpongeBob SquarePants and a reference not to Swift or 'Ye, but to Harambe, the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla killed in May after a three-year-old boy fell into his cage.

Now the mural has been defaced AGAIN — and the new picture is absolutely ridiculous!!

Ch-ch-check out the Instagram shot LushSux posted informing the world that, yes, his mural has AGAIN been defaced and altered… this time, as a shrine to "Haramye"!!!

There's even a video of the re-do, and it's set — very appropriately — to the Yeezy song that kicked off the entire feud (below):

'RIP Taylor Swift' Mural Gets A Creepy Face Lift To Become An Actual Memorial For Harambe The Gorilla — And SpongeBob SquarePants?

Much better!

Earlier this week, Aussie street artist Lushsux shared an image of his faux "RIP Taylor Swift" mural that was made to memorialize the pop star's figurative death in the wake of her Famous feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

Shortly after it blew up on social media, TayTay's team contacted the artist with threats of legal action if the mural wasn't swiftly removed.

While it looks like the request was already complied, we're not sure the songstress will be satisfied — because "Taylor Smith" has turned into the bizarre hybrid creature "Taylor Gorilla SquarePants."

On Thursday, the artist shared an image of the updated mural on Instagram featuring a cartoon gorilla face seen in SpongeBob SquarePants painted over Tay's face — with the caption changed to: "In loving memory of Harambe, 1988-2016."

Harambe the gorilla became a popular cultural reference earlier this year after being killed at the Cincinnati Zoo on May 28 when a young child fell into its enclosure.

This time, however, Lushsux isn't taking credit for the work.

In the caption of his post, the artist asked "WHO DID THIS?!?!" — but of course, that could just be his way of avoiding more legal threats from Team Swifty:

Cincinnati Zoo Builds Higher Barriers & Reopens Gorilla Exhibit After Harambe's Tragic Death

| Filed under: Animal RightsZooGorillaViral: KidsViral: AnimalsViral: NewsControversy

The zoo is improving its safety precautions after Harambe's death.

The Cincinnati Zoo's Gorilla World exhibit has reopened for the first time since the tragic death of Harambe the Gorilla.

Late last month, the 17-year-old silverback gorilla was shot and killed after a toddler fell into the enclosure. Officials said tranquilizing the animal would agitate it, so the best thing for the child's safety was to end the creature's life.

The beautiful primate's killing caused quite a bit of controversy, as people began to criticize the kid's parents, as well as the zoo's protocols.

And after a police investigation revealed the tiny tot's mother would not be charged over the incident, zoo director Thane Maynard has decided it's time open up the exhibit once again, telling Cincinnati.com:

"It's been a very difficult time, as you can imagine, with the loss of Harambe…. Losing Harambe is just like losing a family member. People that work at zoos care about their animals very much. And so we are leaning on each other and sticking together, but of course it is time to move on and to see gorillas again."

But he didn't just reopen Gorilla World. Mr. Maynard and his team put in a new, taller, barrier that has wood beams at the top and bottom, as well as netting in between.

The zoo has also installed three security cameras.

And even though Thane increased the enclosure's safety measures, he defended their old perimeter, saying:

Could there be justice for Harambe the Gorilla?

On Saturday, the silverback gorilla was shot and killed at the Cincinnati Zoo after three-year-old Isiah Dickerson fell into the animal's enclosure.

Zoo director Thane Maynard explained that officials were concerned for the toddler's safety after the endangered animal began dragging him through the habitat, and defended the decision to put him down by arguing that tranquilizers don't go into effect immediately and would only make the large primate agitated.

On Monday, the Jane Goodall Institue released an email that the 82-year-old sent to Cincinnati Zoo's director Thane Maynard on Sunday, and the UK native revealed that she doesn't believe the gorilla had any intention of harming the toddler, writing:
