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.

People DO UNDERSTAND ART, and this isn't art. Imagine how many good things could have been done for people who need food or medicine. Sounds like her show is stinking up the place and she's hoping this stunt will generate some viewers. Turn off her show and make her go get a real job.

just my opinion    

real art helps people in one way or another. a real artsy thing to do wouldve been to write a 100k check to an abused childrens cause....write a check to pay the tuition of an 18 yr old that graduated this week but can't afford tuition for college in the fall. people are right, no one should be able to tell you what to do with your money but this was disgusting. pure and simple.

My main gripe is, I'm so sick of spoiled rich kids who think their celebrities just because they can spread their legs for sex tapes, or because daddy has an important name... then they go around showing everyone how rich they are, and saying, "I'm an artist", "I'm an entrepreneur" no you're a spoiled brat spending daddy's money. You'd be a nobody with a $50 purse like the rest of us Schlubs if daddy wasn't Cline Eastwood. It would have been better to auction the purse off for charity. In light of memorial day, $$ could have been given to children of deceased soldiers. That being said, death threats are stupid.

"Eastwood has been receiving death threats via Twitter and Facebook, such as..."" you realize that NONE of your examples are in any way a THREAT. As close as ONE came was the one about she should kill herself. besides, who gives a crap anyway. BTW i'm sure there will be a $100,000 business expense tax deduction for fiscal yeat 2012. So in effect you and I are paying for her sh!tty purse. Of course the real crime is someone paying that kind of money for a frigging PURSE. way more money than brains.

who burns a bag? doesn't matter how much it is. burning a bag isn't art. she wants to create art? go grab some paintbrushes, paper and start painting. that's art. burning a bag, is just plain stupid. it means you have psychological problems and should probably get that checked out. obviously, she doesn't know what art is.

Meh. One less ugly, obscenely over-priced piece of "designer" crap in the world. Good riddance.

I don't watch "reality" (cough*cough*) shows anyway, but the only way I would watch this one is if Clint and Mommy put a freeze on her trust fund and credit cards. I would watch the show if they made her get a real job and filmed THAT instead. Same goes for the missus. Even the Kardashians aren't this stupid. I'm going to go flog myself now for defending the Kardashians. I thought it would be a cold day in hell before you got me to defend THEM.

The girl doesn't deserve death threats. However, what a spoiled little princess. It's not art, it's offensive. I hope she'll enjoy her 15 mins of fame because I doubt she'll ever be known for anything else unless she grows the Hell up.

Nasty words but how can any of the phrases you published be considered "death threats". Man you TMZ kids really are horrible in the critical thinking department.
