Hefner died on Wednesday evening at the age of 91, at his home in LA surrounded by family and friends.
Here’s seven facts about The Hef:
Hefner, who founded Playboy magazine in the 1950s was also known for his colourful lifestyle, silk pyjamas and parties in the famous Playboy mansion surrounded by models and scantily-clad women known as the Playboy Bunnies.
In honour of that lifestyle local fans have flooded Twitter with memes, joking about his lifestyle and love for women.
