Jeffree Star Destroys $1000 Louis Vuitton Bag for DIY Halloween Costume
Before Shane Dawson did his docuseries on Jake Paul, he did one on Jeffree Star. And if there’s one thing we learned from that series, it’s that the 32-year-old is SO much richer than we ever thought. That being said, the beauty guru isn’t afraid to drop some major dough, and LBR, is there any better time to go all out than during the Halloween season?
Apparently, Jeffree doesn’t think so, which is why he decided to sacrifice a $1,000 Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 bag with the intention of turning it into a fabulously gruesome costume. He teased the rather expensive DIY project on Twitter and, understandably so, fans of the makeup artist freaked TF out.

In response to the teaser, one person wrote, “Can’t relate, not rich enough to even own one, let alone cut one up,” with another person adding, “We get it, WE’RE POOR.” Wow… too real.
Aside from this DIY project being a complete waste, though, several supporters were upset that he ruined such a valuable item when he could’ve instead used the money to help those who actually need it.
I love Jeffree but him wasting money like that makes me a little sad. The amount of money he spent on this bag he is about to destroy could literally make a big difference in some people’s lives.

@JeffreeStar I will donate them 1000$ cash to a charity organization of your choice if you give my girlfriend a kiss on the cheek at the Anastasia party. You’re her absolute favorite

@JeffreeStar do as you want but can't watch money being wasted mindlessly when the struggle is real. But the mega rich do whatever

Well, they certainly have a good point! It’s important to note, however, that JS often makes huge contributions to various charities and rarely says anything because he doesn’t want any recognition. It’s ALSO important to note that Jeffree works hard for his money and can do with it what he pleases, which is a sentiment that many people agree with.
It's just a bag ya'll, relax. Yes, it's an expensive one, but at the end of the day it's just a physical thing. If Jeffree had used a bag from a Target brand none of you would be complaining.

Like always, Jeffree DGAF about what people thought and went ahead with the costume, which — not gonna lie — looked frickin’ AMAZING in the end.
