Hide Your Books—Lauren Conrad is Crafting Again
After reality starlet/author Lauren Conrad posted a book snuff film which shows her ripping into perfectly readable Lemony Snicket books to make a “storage box” (aka a hot glue gun mess) out of the spines, the internet was rightly outraged and horrified.
Conrad has since taken the original video down, but you can watch an old version below if you’re interested in seeing books get cruelly sacrificed at the altar of celebrity “crafts.”
Slate reached out to Mr. Snicket, aka Daniel Handler, for a comment on the….err….creative use of his A Series of Unfortunate Events series:
