Bunnies, Celebrities, And More React To The Playboy Founder’s Passing
The news of Hugh Hefner’s death is shocking the nation. If there’s anyone, living or dead, who can snatch attention away from the ever-growing Kardashian-clan, is the founder and editor-in-chief of Playboy. A man whose vision changed the lifestyle of men since 1953. Rather than being, ahem, manly; Hefner created the playboy. Dapper, expensive taste, and surrounded by beauty.
Hefner revolutionized the modern, American man. After passing in his home, the Playboy Mansion, he leaves his legacy behind him to his family: His wife, Crystal, and four grown children, including his son Cooper, who serves as Chief Creative Officer of his father’s company.
I’ve already seen sarcastic and crude comments about Hefner’s passing. To some, he was an [old] pervert. People are claiming many stories of alleged cruelty and harm to women will now surface that he has passed. I don’t believe any of this will happen for a second. He has given a career to so many women that are currently household names. Holly Madison, Jenny McCarthy, Carmen Electra, Pamela Anderson, and the never-forgotten, Anna Nicole Smith.
