Francesca Eastwood and Tyler Shields Destroy Expensive Things For Art

posted by Chris Valentine

Clint Eastwood’s daughter Francesca Eastwood and her boyfrined Tyler Shields (a professional photographer) have decided to destroy expensive things for art. It started with a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, which are apparently very tough. Shields explains that it required 7 saws and 20 minutes worth of drilling to destroy the shoes, which were set on fire for good measure. The price of the pair of Louboutins was not mentioned but a quick look on the net suggests they are anywhere from $500 to $1,000. Shields ends his post with the Tyler Durden-like phrase “Never let an object own you.”

The shoes were just a warm-up. Now Francesca Eastwood and Tyler Shields set their sights on a red crocodile Birkin handbag worth about $100,000, we believe. With a chainsaw and some gasoline, the expensive bag is destroyed, as Shields exclaims “Destruction is a beautiful version of freedom.”

The act has made a lot of people angry. Twitter reactions sampled here:

“Some of us actually have to work and live check 2 check, spoiled rotten b*tch to burn 100k bag.”
“You should kill urself, ungrateful b*tch – wasted money when families can’t eat.”
“Burning a $100K purse is not art. It’s self-indulgent, wasteful, lazy, showing off.”

And so on.

Burning wealth for art is not new. The K-Foundation already made the ultimate statement by burning 1,000,000 pounds back in the 90s. After you’ve witnessed that kind of act, burning up a handbag and pair of shoes just doesn’t seem to measure up.
