French President Emmanuel Macron was reportedly given the finger this week, but not in the way you’d think … this one was severed from a human being and sent to him in the mail.
Macron was the recipient of the gory delivery Monday, according to news outlet London Evening Standard … which says the digit showed up at the Élysée Palace in Paris without a note. We don’t know if Macron ever personally saw what was inside.
A source claims police immediately put the finger in their communal fridge, where snacks are usually kept, to keep it preserved ahead of testing — which came back to show it was from a living human being.
The outlet says the person missing the finger was located and given medical support … although they weren’t identified. It’s unclear if any arrests have been made.
France has been dealing with a lot of unrest lately — waves of riots erupted after cops in Paris fatally shot 17-year-old French Algerian Nahel Merzouk last week. He was allegedly trying to drive away from the officers during a traffic stop.
As we reported, Macron was spotted having fun at Elton John‘sFarewell Tour as riots sparked in his country … and he’s set to lead Bastille Day celebrations Friday in Paris, and many believe he’ll be facing plenty of public outrage.
