Yearbook Tribute to Grandma is Hijacked by Racist Pranksters {VIDEO}

Written by on October 15, 2020

The USA is traditionally called a melting pot immigrants who come here generally abandon their cultures and “melt” or become assimilated into American society. When I think of the culture of Canada, I like to imagine a colorful quilt, where every ethnicity is individually celebrated as an important piece of the whole.

So when a loyal listener from Toronto told me about the racist prank that was pulled at a Canadian High School, I was shocked!

A high school student in Pickering Ontario submitted a tribute to his grandma in the yearbook, but it was replaced with a racist message and sent to print.

Joshua wanted the words next to his graduation to thank his grandmother for her love and support. Instead, the message printed in the yearbook read

“R.I.P. Harambe Dooga booga.O” — referring to a gorilla that was killed at the Cincinnati Zoo in 2016.

The school said in a statement that officials are “horrified to discover that inappropriate comments were unknowingly published” and requested that students return all copies of the yearbook ASAP.

I’m sure the punks responsible for this prank will be holding onto a few copies for bragging rights.

On a positive note, an online fundraiser was created to help finance Josh’s college tuition and to show support for his family.
