UPDATE April 4, 5:41 a.m. EST:
John Ball Zoo responded to its newfound fame in a Facebook post Monday, clarifying that the woman recording the video was not a zoo employee but a guest.
The zoo said the chimpanzee likes to interact with people. When people laugh or yell in response to its behavior, that encourages it further, which led to Sunday's poop-throwing incident.
The zoo also said it would install new barriers to protect guests from airborne feces and "similar situation[s]."
It's not exactly a secret: Apes throw their own poop around. But nobody ever thinks they'll be a target.
But one unsuspecting woman found herself in that unlucky position Sunday. Erin Vargo, an intern working at the John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids, Michigan, captured a woman getting hit by one chimpanzee's poo-fling.
In the last few seconds of the video, the poop can be seen hanging off her nose, and a child shouts delightedly, "It got Grandma!"
The ape's accuracy is impeccable.

Since it's baseball's Opening Day, sports deals were on many observers' minds.
This Chimpanzee throwing poop directly at a grandma's face is more accurate than your favorite team's QB... pic.twitter.com/nQqrIhCS2n— NFL Memes (@NFL_Memes) April 3, 2017
Got to start my day with a gif of a chimpanzee throw poop at a grandma and hit her square in the face. The internet is wonderful.— Peter (@weter_pron) April 3, 2017
The unfortunate woman quickly became part of the Internet's new favorite video.
