I think they bring up a decent point about scamming but their anger is over the top.

I think the term “backlash” used seems over the top but some of the tweets so bring a point about anyone being able to replicate this and scam people.

The backlash isn't listed in the post, they're angry bc she just threw paint on some CD covers instead of, idk, painting each one individually.

i figured this was it. tbf to fans throwing a bucket of paint onto a bunch of cd's does sound kinda lazy. even in theory.

But she’s not selling them for any more than regular non-splattered cds…

I thought she would be like charging $100 by the tweet reactions but $10? This is kind of cool if you're a fan.
