Last night we lost a legend. Hugh Hefner passed away at the age of 91. He created one of the biggest empires ever. The world has been reacting since the news broke last night and it shows the impact he had on everyone.

Hefner started the Playboy empire in 1953 after working at Esquire. He received a few loans from the bank and then made good investments – and before we knew it, Playboy was a thing.

These ladies were featured in the magazine as Playmates and many of them have recently reacted to Hefner’s passing on Twitter.

RIP Hef.
