Clint Eastwood’s daughter sparks outrage after burning $100k handbag
New York: Clint Eastwood’s daughter has infuriated fashion fans and general public, after setting a 100,000 dollars Hermes Birkin bag on fire in a new photo shoot.
Francesca Eastwood, 19, and her photographer boyfriend Tyler Shields took a chainsaw to the designer bag before destroying it in the name of art.
According to the New York Post, the response to the demise of the red crocodile Birkin has been swift, and has included death threats.
"Burning a 100Kdollars is not art. It`s self-indulgent, wasteful, lazy, showing off,” one person wrote on Twitter.
Another fumed, “could have used a cheap Kmart bag. Instead, waste money that could have fed hundreds. Spoiled and clueless. Try working 4 REAL.”
Sources close to Eastwood told entertainment website TMZ that Francesca had never expected the level of anger that she received.
She has reportedly told her friends that people simply did not understand art.
Clint’s daughter is a model and stars in the reality TV show ‘Mrs. Eastwood and Company.’
Francesca is the only child of actor/director Clint Eastwood`s relationship with actress Frances Fisher, whom he had met on the set of “Pink Cadillac” in 1989.
The couple parted ways in 1995.
