"Cut out some of my flesh and make a human barbecue with it." Ingrid Newkirk, president of the animal rights group PETA, unveiled her new will Tuesday in which she gives somewhat surprising advance directives.
Beyond the "human barbecue", she especially wants to donate her liver to Emmanuel Macron to "call on the French government to ban" foie gras, which she considers to be a "barbaric product". "With the tasty fake fats now available, there is no longer a valid excuse to allow force-feeding of ducks and geese," she said.
A heart for Elon Musk "who has none"
In a statement, Ingrid Newkirk, who founded the association in 1980, also attacks billionaire Elon Musk, who will receive her heart. The reason? "His cruel and deadly brain experiments as part of Project Neuralink on monkeys, pigs, rats and sheep indicate that he has none."
Six feet underground? No. Two legaciated feet! As well as a piece of his heart to Elon Musk or his liver to Emmanuel Macron.

She also calls for turning her skin into a belt "or a leather handbag", blaming brands like Hermès, "which has continued to use the skins of abused and killed animals in the name of fashion".
Salt Bae and Donald Trump Jr. targeted
Turkish butcher Nusret Gökçe, alias "Salt Bae", is also named on the will of the animal rights activist. He must receive his intestines to "use them as sausage casings in his meat restaurants."
Then comes the turn of the son of former US president, Donald Trump Jr., to whom Ingrid Newkirk wants to offer a piece of his spine. He "could stop trying to prove his manhood by slaughtering beautiful animals," says the president of PETA.
Egypt's Minister of Tourism and Antiquities is expected to inherit part of PETA's founder's back: "This passionate gesture will symbolize the backbreaking work humans impose on battered and exhausted donkeys, horses and camels at the site of the pyramids of Giza, where hungry animals collapsed as they were forced to pull people in the sweltering heat."
An ear to Felipe VI against bullfighting
In addition to the donations mentioned above, Ingrid Newkirk also wants one of her ears to be sent to the King of Spain, Felipe VI. In her line of sight: bullfighting, "a vestige of a dark era that no longer has its place in our current society, but it is still responsible for the killing of 250,000 bulls each year," she says.
However, this is not a first. This new testament of Ingrid Newkirk is an update of the one she had published for the first time 20 years ago, in which she denounced the exploitation of animals by McDonald's.
