Lauren Conrad, the tanned face blonde of The Hills has started an online video series called Crafty Creations. Through the series she undertakes low-end DIY projects, teaching viewers how to make wine cork bulletin boards or painted accent pillows with many viewers professing their undying love for LC below.
Thursday’s edition of Crafty Creations was where the lovefest ended after Gawker posted a link to the video with the headline “Watch Lauren Conrad Rip Apart Books to the Sounds of Soothing Guitar.”
The article describes the craft video as “a kind of literature snuff film…Lauren resting her hand on her victims: a stack of books whose spines she will soon rip out.” A few hours after the article was posted, the DIY video was taken down from You Tube and removed from Lauren’s website. An explanation to Lauren’s madness has not yet been released.
In a “series of unfortunate events” Lemony Snicket, the author of the books shamelessly murdered by Lauren herself, has released a statement saying “It has always been my belief that people who spend too much time with my work end up as lost souls, drained of reason, who lead lives of raving emptiness and occasional lunatic violence. What a relief it is to see this documented.”
Was Lauren in the wrong to rip apart Lemony’s books? Or is this incident been blown up by the media? Tweet us your thoughts with #LaurenBookButcher and tell us what you think!
