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.

Just another stupid show about spoiled rich young people. I guess no one would have even known who they were if they show wasn't named "Mrs. Eastwood".

I see it is some form of art, but it is a very poor form. It is like when Pete Townshend used to smash guitars because he couldn't get the sound he wanted from them. It shows a lack of ability more than an ability.

Art is the emotional reaction you get when seeing something created for that purpose. When she gets hate and resentment, that is not what she intended. All most people can think of is what a waste that is. She is saying money doens't matter, but she has even more money, so it wouldn't matter to her. A poor person suddenly having $100,000 would be like an answer to many problems.

Art is usually about creating something but she is mainly destroying something just to create a little. That makes it not very good art if you ask me.

I understand art, but I also understand how many people in America are going hungry and watching yet another no talent "I'm only popular because my daddy is a star" brat burn money that would feed over 1000 families for a week. Death threats are ridiculous though. the message is lost in stupidity.

Her level of maturity is amazing. It's surprising she didn't fill the bag with dog crap and set it alight at someone's front door, ring the doorbell and then run like hell. A very mature, responsible young woman, that one.

It is true that it's her money and it is true that I know nothing about art, but when did setting something on fire become art. There are hundreds of thousands of families in the US right now trying to figure out how their kids are going to eat tonight.ART, yeah right, I'll go and withdraw all the money out of my bank account and set it on fire in the middle of the street and take a picture of it. Then I'll be as stupid as she is.

Make a statement without saying a word by helping the poor and making donations quietly to charities. Charitable giving has more value for your personal growth if you keep it to yourself. Burning this bag was a thoughtless act by an entitled child of Hollywood royalty.

This idiot could have fed 100,000 people with that original money. I would think someone who would donate the money to the poor would have more people think she was one hell of an artist then some idiot who wastes money on what she 'assumes' is art.. Just goes to show you that the rich are so out of touch with reality of the real world. Make a name for yourself and help the less fortunate. That's artsy!

Mrs. Eastwood is a okay show. Mrs. Eastwood is the most interesting person on the show, very likeable. But I'm not gonna watch this show anymore. Francesca is spoiled and this is just over the top.
