The response to the demise of the red crocodile Birkin was swift, and included death threats.
“Burning a $100K purse 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 she had never anticipated the level of anger she received. She reportedly told her friends that people simply did not understand art.
Eastwood is a model and stars in the reality TV show¬†Mrs. Eastwood and Company.
She is the only child of actor/director Clint Eastwood’s relationship with actress Frances Fisher, who he met on the set of¬†Pink Cadillac¬†in 1989. The couple broke up in 1995.

FROM TYLER SHIELDS :
Christian Louboutin make the toughest shoes in the world it took 7 saws to get through this shoe, 4 blades were destroyed and after 20 minutes of drilling we were through. You want to know why someone would pay this much for a pair of shoes because they are like minni tanks women wear that get them safely from one spot to the next!
After sawing one of the shoes in half I figured I would see how the other did with extreme heat turns out you can set a Christian Louboutin on fire for 10 minutes burn it to a crisp and still wear it‚Ä¶
