Francesca Eastwood

DEATH THREATS After

Destroying Birkin Bag

EXCLUSIVE

0528_francesca_eastwood_birken_bagClint Eastwood's daughter has been bombarded with vicious online death threats after she publicly demolished a $100,000 Birkin bag in the name of art, TMZ has learned.

Francesca Eastwood, star of "Mrs. Eastwood and Company," and her BF Tyler Shields took a chain saw to the pricey bag and then LIT IT ON FIRE ... which has angered dozens of fashionistas (and many who are just economically challenged).

Eastwood has been receiving death threats via Twitter and Facebook, such as:

-- "Some of us actually have to work and live check 2 check, spoiled rotten bitch to burn 100k bag."
-- "You’re a stupid whore. How f***ing dumb can you be."
-- "You should kill urself, ungrateful bitch – wasted money when families can't eat."

Sources close to Francesca tell us ... the 19-year-old said she knew people would be shocked, but never expected this level of hatred. We're told she's been telling friends ... people just don't understand art.

If you have $100,000 to blow on a handag that you're gonna burn... why not donate that money to starving children in the world?! This is not art, its a tasteless display of greed and inequality. I dont think she deserves the death threats though... maybe just a lesson in empathy.

Do you really think she paid for that bag? Think about it, she just got a new reality show so most likely the people at Birkin gave her the bag so she could be seen with it. The rich never have to pay for anything. And even if she did pay for it, why should we be giving her a hard time over $100 grand when people do WAY more stupid things with their wealth.

I def agree with the fact that the bag was very expensive, and many people struggle day to day just to eat.. I think the point here is this: Material things are not as important as people make them out to be. Instead of spending ridiculous amounts of money on a stupid bag, we should invest our efforts into positive things. Many wealthy women buy these bags all the time, but wouldn't give a dime to charity. Or if they do, they are doing it for show. Money can't buy your way into heaven, and the sooner people realize this, the better.

Let's just not watch the stupid show anymore. It's indulgent. Not as bad as the dreaded Kardashians though. I realize it was her money, and the fact that it was priced that high is insane, but did you watch the episode? She talked about how it was wrong to have such an expensive bag after Dina explained that it was almost 4 years of salary for most people and then she still proceeded to destroy it? If she didn't want it she should have sold it and donated the proceeds. Or donated the bag itself to a charity. They could have had an auction. Can you imagine what a food kitchen could have done with that much money?! She is a completely out of touch child. If it was a fake bag it might be time to come out and say it.

If you watched the tv show, Tyler was the one who obtained "the bag" for his photo shoot somehow (hmm Hermes?) and she wanted to hang onto it to play awhile. Dina was the champ about explaining the embarrassment of carrying such a bag. They should have auctioned the bag and burned something from Target using CG like all good photogs...

Obviously the people who are sending dead threats to Francesca Eastwood don't have any idea of the real story behind this photo. First, the bag IS NOT HERS. It was bought by her bf WHO IS AN ARTIST/PRO PHOTOGRAPHER. He used this photo for his art exhibit. Francesca DIDN'T WANT TO DESTROY THE BAG and even begged his bf to lend her the expensive bag even for a couple of days before it was destroyed for the shoot. It's unfair that Francesca will take the hit when it was her bf's idea to use the bag for his form of art and also to make a statement regarding over materialism of some women. Enough of judgemental freaks. Know first the FACTS before you throw judgement and worse, threats.

This is just down right crazy. Who sends death threats to someone for burning their own purse??? She bought the thing, she can do whatever she wants with it.
I know the economy is bad but this is nuts. If you have time to send death threats via Twitter and Facebook than you have time to go look for a frigging job, or some mental help.
