Late on Wednesday night, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner passed away at the age of 91. He died in the Playboy Mansion, which he sold this summer for $100 million on the condition that he could live there for the rest of his life.
His life (and his lifestyle) were celebrated on Twitter.
Serious take on Hugh Hefner: Arguably, one of, if not, the most important publisher of the second half of the 20th century.

Hugh Hefner fought for civil rights, women’s rights, and free speech. He was an American icon bigger than a magazine, in good & bad ways.

Thank you Hugh Hefner for being a defender of civil rights, a champion of free speech, and of course, all the boners

One thing i can’t wait for and i swear i’m not lying are the pieces — by women — reevaluating Hefner & his contribution to American culture.
