Hugh Marston Hefner, mostly referred to as Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy Magazine has died at the age of 91 of natural causes.
His son Cooper Hefner confirmed the news of his death in a statement saying:
My father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights and sexual freedom. He defined a lifestyle and ethos that lie at the heart of the Playboy brand, one of the most recognizable and enduring in history. He will be greatly missed by many, including his wife Crystal, my sister Christie and my brothers David and Marston, and all of us at Playboy Enterprises.
