My oh my oh my! People certainly do some stupid stuff, don’t they? Francesca Eastwood, daughter of cinema icon Clint and star of the new reality show Mrs. Eastwood & Company, has come under fire lately…and literally!
TMZ is reporting that the nineteen-year-old has been receiving death threats via Facebook and Twitter after her controversial photographer beau Tyler Shields snapped pictures of Francesca destroying a $100,000 (in my Dana Wilkie voice) Hermes Birkin bag…all in the name of art. The photos show Francesca taking a chainsaw to the bag before setting it on fire. The pictorial enraged fashionistas and hard-working folks alike…you know, the people for whom that bag’s price tag would equate to years and years (and years) of paychecks.

Some of the threats included, “Some of us actually have to work and live check 2 check, spoiled rotten b*tch to burn 100k bag,” and “You should kill urself, ungrateful b*tch – wasted money when families can’t eat.”
Yikes! While Francesca expected backlash, she wasn’t prepared for the amount of hate she was tossed. While I take minimal offense to her wastefulness as both a lover of gorgeous handbags I’ll never in a bazillion years be able to afford and a poor person (thanks student loans!), are death threats really necessary? Some people take the anonymity of the internet way too far!
