DEATH THREATS After

Destroying Birkin Bag

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.

So, childish to make death threats over something so stupid. It's a freaking bag! They spent their money on it. Alos, I like the statement it makes and the photo is awesome. Maybe, some people need to look at the artistic side of it and not the money.

I agree with the spoiled bitch comment. First, whoever spent that much on a purse is a total dumbass. Second, whoever thinks this is art is a fool. Meanwhile in the rest of the world, we are unemployed and hungry. I can't stand Hollywood. They are all so damn full of themselves. I don't go to movies anymore because they're not getting a freakin' plug nickel from me.

it's actually a pretty traditional form of art to destroy something that holds the kind of value this purse does. because seriously, 100K for a purse is absurdly revolting and it warrants destruction when there are millions of people going without basic needs.

Did anyone actually watch the episode it was shown in it wasn't her bag she did not pay for it her boyfriend received the bag and she actually begged he at first to not do it.. After her stepmom explained how she herself grew up poor . Francesca decided that it wasn't right to charge that much for anything and agreed to go along with his photo shoot. Where he has been showing that money isnt everything.. So why are there ignorant ppl threating her when he was the one to do it??

people should watch the show before making dumb comments..the main point of burning the bag was to say **** you to society... who would spend $100,000 for a bag when you could buy 200,000 tacos at Jack in the Box.

Who cares, these photos are stupid anyway. I could crap on a cracker and call it art...that doesn't make it art. Unless it looked like Jesus or something.

Charity without choice is slavery. Listen to all the slave masters telling her what she should do. Does anyone know what her charitable works are? Does anyone know what who she has helped in the past? How many of you give in proportion to what you have? That lady on the side of the street shooting dope up her arms is still starving. That child that you don't want your kids playing with because he is a bad influence still needs to know love. Ms Eastwood made a valid and artistic point with her own property whether she bought or not is irrelevant.

The show was about how poor Dina's family was and her hoarding. Why didn't they donate the items to charity instead of throwing everything away. Dumb show!!!
