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.

I dont support what she did, it was stupid actually to burn a purse (a $100,000 purse is a rip off btw and just ridiculous).

but anyways there is no need to send death threats over this. people are just retarded and over emotional and too quick to react.

she doesnt deserve death threats over doing a dumb stunt like this.

I am surprised that a child of clint eastwood would be like that. i dont see him as being tolerant of that type of behaviour. Reality tv seems to do weird things to kids. she needs to be taught a lesson and learn that most of us cannot afford such stupidity.

The first two comments aren't even remotely death threats but the third comes dangerously close.

Yes, it's her money and she's free to do anything she wants with it but if this so-called "art" is supposed to be making a statement, I think it's sending the wrong one.

There's a huge difference between spending that kind of cash on something you intend to keep and use versus something you're just going to turn around and destroy. Spending $2M on a Ferrari so you can drive it around is one thing. Spending $2M on a Ferrari so you can set it on fire is quite a different thing.

It shows that money is meaningless to her because she doesn't have to worry about it. It's incredibly offensive to those of us who often do.

She's no better than that rapper who poured several bottles of super-high-end liquor out onto the streets just because he could.

People like that don't deserve my support so they'll never get it. I won't watch their shows or listen to their music. If everyone else did the same maybe they'd appreciate what they have a bit more.

However, death threats are just childish nonsense from people with more time than maturity or intelligence.

Francesca was born in 1993. That makes her 19 years old. SO, it's not her money she is spending, it's her daddy's money. Had no idea Clint was that stupid. Oh well, he was a womanizer and had lots of kids with lots of different women. Guess a good actor and director has to be a screw up somewhere in his life. Daughter must take after him. Sad that she thinks that is art.

Hey everyone-- Francesca knows the bag is ridiculous. If you watch Mrs. Eastwood and Company tonight, you will see, she is against materialism. The bag, and Francesca's stepmother's hatred of what it stands for, is the focus of the show. BIRKIN BAG = DOUCHE BAG

While I wouldn't have done this - - - the real issue isn't with the girl who thought it "art" to spend that much money for something to destroy - - the problem is with those who have so much invested in something so material that they would be that upset about it

it's the in your face that has so many ticked. Stars with all their money going over seas to marry that kind of BS. Mostly when so many just struggle to get by. They act like well just go to wokr, don't you think everyone would like a great paying job.Then you have someone in your face like this. I too would hope her Dad would be disappointed, money or not. Sad world People sad.

Well that is just stupid, it's her money, and her bag. While I love designer bags and couldn't ever bring myself to tear one up, it was her choice. No one tells you all how to spend your money why tell her? Not her fault all you all can't do any better than you do. Maybe some of you need to reevaluate your lives if you are living pay check to paycheck. Maybe you need to cut some of your spending out, cut the internet off, and the cell phones...cut them off and the TV. Internet isn't needed but some how you all manage to pay for all that so can't be THAT bad off than can ya? It was her money if she wanted to waste it let her...you didn't make her money now did you? You have no right to tell her how to spend her money.

None of the tweets they showed in the story are "Death Threats" way to make it sound worse than it is.

Clint needs to get his daughter away from that Tyler Shields. He's the photographer who uses Lindsay Lohan for sensationalistic photos, shock value, and Lindsay loves it. The photos are all trash. I figure Tyler has nothing to do if he has to resort to made-up photos for free of Lindsay and now this chick and a pocketbook. Just because his name's all over the news doesn't make him a famous or good photographer. And maybe this Eastwood chick was raised by her mother, since her parents are divorced. Hard to see Clint going along with this kind of stupidity, isn't it?
