NFL Shop blocks fans from ordering customized Harambe jerseys

NFL fans wanting to pay tribute to the late Cincinnati Zoo gorilla Harambe on their jerseys will have to look elsewhere than the league's official store.

As ESPN's Darren Rovell pointed out Wednesday, NFL Shop has blocked fans from ordering jerseys with a "Harambe" nameplate on the back.

We tested this ourselves by typing "Harambe" into the custom name bar, and sure enough, received the following message: "We are unable to customize this item with the text you have entered. Please try a different entry again."

Harambe was fatally shot by a zoo employee in May after a four-year-old child fell into his enclosure.
