(Newser) – The Hermes Birkin bag is so sought after, people sit on a waiting list for years to purchase one—but apparently, if you're the daughter of Clint Eastwood, you can afford to take a chainsaw to the $100,000 bag and then set it on fire. Francesca Eastwood, 19, destroyed the red crocodile bag for a photo shoot, and now she's receiving death threats, TMZ reports. Sample unhappy tweet from the New York Post: "could have used a cheap Kmart bag. Instead, waste money that could have fed hundreds. Spoiled and clueless. Try working 4 REAL."

Eastwood, who trashed the bag with her photographer boyfriend Tyler Shields, has apparently been telling her friends that some people just don't understand art. (If you do, and you want to see the pictures, they're here.) The model stars in new reality show Mrs. Eastwood and Company, which finds itself the subject of another bizarre headline today: "The Girls Discover That Dina Hoards Dead Pet Ashes." The Huffington Post has the video, which, disturbingly, ends with the Eastwood girls getting in an ash-fight.

well...Clint Eastwood..who has an impeccable reputation made a HUGE mistake allowing the trainwreck that are his family to start up a reality show! He should be embarrassed and angry by the lack of common sense his teenager (& his wife) is showing.....maybe new nickname is not "dirty harry" but rather "dumb daddy"...sad.and waaaaaaaaay too much information........like my celebs to keep their dirty laundry and their crazy private...

Honestly, I would prefer to see this bag chainsawed and burned than on the arm of anybody. Since those are the options, well done, Francesca. It's not like you destroyed anything with any actual intrinsic value.
