Syrian woman wants to be eaten by tiger in Berlin


An enclosure with live tigers has been standing in front of the Gorki Theater in Berlin for a few days. It is an art campaign with the title “Eating Refugees”, and has been very controversial so far.

On Monday a Syrian actress threatened that she will let herself be thrown to the tigers in front of the theater, if politicians don’t show a clear sign of change in their refugee policies in the next eight days.

May Skaf says in a sharp tone: “I will let myself be eaten by Europe.” With tears running down her face she tells of her flight, the war and she calls for an end to the deaths in the Mediterranean Sea.

Of course she didn’t go through with it.

    Shoot her and throw her carcass in. Tigers don’t care.

      How can you do that to the poor tigers?

      The meat might be tainted. At least remove the bullet so a tiger doesn’t accidentally ingest any lead.

    No statement from PETA condemning this cynical exploitation of caged animals for political theatre, oops, I mean ‘art’.
