Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca pissed the entire Internet right off today and is supposedly receiving death threats after she was snapped by controversial photographer Tyler Shields destroying and burning a $100,000 Birkin bag.
The photos were meant to be artistic and Tyler wrote on his blog: “For the people who don’t know a Birkin is the most sought after bag in the entire world there is a waiting list and some of them can run upwards of $100,000. This is the red Crocodile Birkin VS the red $200 chainsaw and 4 dollars of gasoline!”
After the intro he asked the following questions: “Destruction is a beautiful version of freedom… Would you want this bag? Are you sad to see me destroy it?”
The photos appear to be a promotion for the current reality show “Mrs. Eastwood and Company,” though he posted similar photos in January of a pair of Christian Louboutin’s meeting their demise with drills. The comments range from calling the stunt a narcissistic show of their own excesses to “fucking spoiled rich fuckers.”
Others praised the art and claimed the negative commenters just don’t appreciate the message, which is kind of fuzzy to me in the first place.
One thoughtful commenter noted the bag is a piece of art itself, made by high skilled and often underpaid craftspeople. Tyler and Francesca burning it and claiming it’s art, is just fraudulent.
Does it make you want to watch the Eastwood’s show more or less?
