Do the proceeds go to ACLU or something??
Someone bid nearly $100,000 — $99,990 to be exact — for a Flamin’ Hot Cheeto that people think looks like Harambe. You know, the Cincinnati Zoo gorilla that was shot and killed after a small boy fell into his enclosure… and later turned into an Internet sensation.
This is a real thing, people.
Since we realize how wholly unbelievable this is, here’s a snapshot of the eBay auction:
The description of the “one of a kind” snack read:
“I opened up a bag of Flamin Hot Cheetos and as soon as I looked inside I came across this unique Cheetos that looks like Harambe the gorilla. This item is one of a kind! It measures up to about 1 1/2 inches in length. This item up for bid is only for this unique Cheetos, bag not included. This makes a great collectible for anyone who appreciates rare items!”
Wow, $100K doesn’t even buy you the bag! Ha!
Congrats to the lucky (?) winner!
(Does anyone else think it’s Martin Shkreli, btw?)
