"Tropical Storm Hermine sounds terrible, and is disrespectful to the great Harambe. To honor Harambe, a renaming is required to continue his legacy," says the Change.org petition.
At this moment, the petition only needs about 300 more signatures to reach its goal.
TS Hermine is a horrible name. A storm on CFB opening weekend should have been named after our friend Harambe. He loved the game so much.— TaxSlayer Bowl (@taxslayerbowl) August 31, 2016
Who came up with TS #Hermine? Like did you forget about Harambe already?— Carlynn Crosby (@CarlynnCrosby) September 1, 2016
