Is nothing sacred anymore?
Lauren Conrad found herself receiving the wrath of book lovers after she posted a clip online where she cuts the spine off books to create a craft project and she quickly took the video down.
In her web-only show Crafty Creations the reality star said she found a “great way to display vintage books or slightly used books and also create a unique storage space,” and promptly cut the spine off of nine books to glue them to a cardboard storage box, destroying them in the process.
She posted the video on her own website and it rapidly went viral before being met with online outrage.
Lauren used books from the Lemony Snicket series and it was noted that she didn’t even put them in order!
Comments on Buzzfeed ranged from “this is murder,” to one person writing “I have a few books I'd like to cut up. ONE OF THEM IS CALLED 'L.A. Candy' BY LAUREN CONRAD.”
Within hours Lauren took the video down, but she has yet to comment on the incident.
