DEATH THREATS After

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.

How in any shape, way or form are those death threats?? They are just true expressions of disgust for someone who is not living in the real world and has no value or appreciation of money. She is not an artist, unless as an adjective she might call herself a bull**** artist. They need to rename their show by the way.....to THE NO GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY.

That's not art. It would be a social commentary, if she had anything at all to say about it.

just because something costs $100k doesn't mean it's worth $100k. She destroyed some leather or whatever that ugly bag is made of. What's idiotic is there are people out there willing to pay such exorbitant amounts of money for a handbag.

I think she should have signed the bag and then auction it off so that she could donate the money to the hungry. It makes no sense to destroy the bag. Yes, the art work is beautiful, but it's pure stupidity that she did that. Coming from someone who has to pay for everything herself including school and is the same age as her, I'm slightly disgusted. :/

I think the KARDASHIANS need to take notice!!!! Everyone of them carry a Birkin Bag- in EVERY COLOR!
The Eastwoods, on the other hand are such a refreshing family to watch!!! I have to admit, I went into watching it kicking and screaming, thinking it would be another Kardashian style show! Thinking it would be another spoiled, FAKE, rich, greedy, nasty, Hollywood family! Well, I WAS WRONG!

This family is so real, grounded, level-headed and FUN!!! This show is absolutely a FEEL-GOOD show!!! Ohhh, by the way, the house-keeper is absolutely ADORABLE! I fell in love with this family and this show!

GOOOO!!! EASTWOODS! Wishing you all the best!

Just ONE more Hollywood nut job that has NO talent and is famous for NOTHING! She should be adopted by the Kardashians! She's fit right in! She'd have plenty of things to burn there!

Take the money and make a statement by donating it to charity. Inspire young people to make a positive and "useful" difference. The only statement she made was to prove that her dad has enough money for her to literally burn it.

If you all actually watched the episode that just finished airing you'd know why they did it & that they were making a statement by doing so. Also, it wasn't her bag to begin with, it was her boyfriend's bag, which he bought in order to destroy to begin with, for his photography. Lastly, it's their money, how do all of you know she doesn't donate money to charities? The fact that people would seriously take the time to send death threats is pathetic and cruel considering you're probably all sadly misinformed as to why the Berkin bag was burned in the first place.
