Daughter of Clint Eastwood Burns $100,000 Handbag Just for the Hell of It

19-year-old Francesca Eastwood is a burgeoning reality TV star–her show, Mrs. Eastwood and Company, airs on E!–and, most notably, the daughter of screen legend Clint Eastwood. She’s also dating celebrity photographer Tyler Shields. Oh, and: she just bought, and then promptly destroyed, a $100,000 handbag. All for a stupid photo shoot!

The victim, a $100,000 Hermes Birkin bag, was purchased by Francesca recently and then featured in a photo shoot, shot by Shields, in which she cuts the bag in half with a chainsaw before setting it on fire (just in case it hadn’t lost all of its value yet). Blah blah blah "art" something something "free expression" something blah blah shut up.

Hey, Francesca! Guess what! You’re a ridiculous person. I don’t care that your father is worth more money than God–a sizeable portion of which must have magically (and by "magically," I mean "nepotistically") found its way to your privileged, over-indulgent little hands–and I don’t care that your boyfriend is a cool photographer who shot you doing this. You don’t go buy a $100,000 handbag–in general, but also–just to destroy it moments later so that you can get the attention you so clearly and desperately crave. $100,000 is a lot of money, in case you forgot, and to throw it away so cavalierly is a slap in the face to people who actually struggle to make a living for themselves and their familes. 

You know what else would’ve gotten you some attention? Donating the money to a charity, you knob.

Love the pictures, though! Xo [via TMZ]
