How would you feel if a celebrity brought a $100,000 Hermes Birkin bag - only to set it on fire for a photo shoot? Would you be angry enough to send death threats? Well that’s just what fans did to Francesca Eastwood this past weekend for destroying the popular handbag with a chain saw.
Francesca Eastwood, daughter of actor/director Clint Eastwood, just launched a new reality series with her family called Mrs. Eastwood and Company on E!. But this new stunt isn't going to gain her any fans!
The very expensive art project was done with her boyfriend, famous photographer Tyler Shields. Shields captioned the pictures, “Destruction is a beautiful version of freedom. Would you want this bag? Are you sad to see me destroy it?”
Judging by the angry tweets that she was receiving, fans were enraged. One angry fan wrote to Eastwood, “You should kill urself, ungrateful bitch, wasted money when families can’t eat.” Shields recently released a statement saying that if someone were to buy a picture, he would donate $100,000 to an actual family.
Their message had good intentions, but destroying a popular bag seen on celebrities like Beyonce, Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian was not the best idea. We guess when you have money to blow like these stars, destroying pricey items isn't as big of a deal. But it's still not cool.
