Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy magazine, passed away on September 27, 2017, in the Playboy mansion. He was 91 years old.

He will be buried in a plot located directly next to superstar Marilyn Monroe, who was featured in the very first issue of Playboy in 1953.

Monroe’s nude photographs were published without her consent, and some people have become very upset about Hugh Hefner’s burial plans. He bought the plot beside hers for $75,000 in 1992.

This decision was criticized by many Twitter users as irresponsible and, according to Twitter user @timelysarcasm, “gross. and paying to be buried next to Marilyn Monroe (who he didn’t know) is creep level 1 million.”

Others have praised Hefner for his purchase, Twitter user @TheShannonBrand said, “Hugh Hefner resting for eternity beside Marilyn Monroe is the greatest thing ever. Nobody will ever be close to what this man was!! Rest Easy.”

    Creepy Old Man. Good riddance to bad rubbish. He should not be buried next to her after disrespecting her and being a disgusting sexist pervert.
