I am sure all you Bag-Hags must be totally distressed by this news. Clint Eastwood’s 19-year-old daughter, Francesca Eastwood was photographed by her celebrity photographer boyfriend – Tyler Shields - biting, then taking a chainsaw to, then setting fire to a Birkin. It is a red alligator Birkin that costs a whopping $100,000 mind you that was destroyed by Eastwood and Shields in the name of ART.
This isn’t the first time Shields and Eastwood have destroyed spendy fashion items in the name of “freedom.” The duo also hacked through a Louboutin and set it on fire (and props to Mr. Louboutin, Shields said it took him seven saws and 20 minutes of drilling to split it open).
Sheilds wrote on his website, “Destruction is a beautiful version of freedom…Would you want this bag? Are you sad to see me destroy it?” Oh yeah! Francesca Eastwood who stars on the new E! show “Mrs. Eastwood and Company,” and inherits her father – Clint Eastwood’s – millions may find destroying a $100,000 Birkin bag fun but pissed off a lot of people, especially in the United States where number of people without jobs are rising by the day.
Here are some comments that appeared on Tyler Shield’s site:
People are out of work, losing their homes, and these mindless idiots have money to piss away like this. Truly disgusting.
Repulsive spoiled little brat. Do people like this know how much 100 k could have helped people in need? Instead this waste of space sets her 100 k on fire rather than give it to someone who needs it, or put it towards a good cause. Truly a repulsive, worthless trust fund baby. Keep living off of daddy you spoiled brat.
Or this succinct sentiment:
I want to punch her in the face.
Here’s a fashion statement that stinks, literally: elephant dung shoes. Created by an artist named INSA, the shoes are ten-inches tall with a platform sculpted out of poop – pachyderm’s poop. INSA made the shoes as a response to Chris Ofili’s work, retracing his footsteps “made over 15 years ago and sourced dung from the same family of elephants that produced the dung used in Chris’s infamous paintings of the nineties.”
