Baddie Winkle is the social media superstar you need to be following.
Baddie Winkle just might be the coolest cat on Instagram.
The octogenarian superstar popped up on social media this April, dressing in amazing outfits and dishing out sassy quotes.
Her Instagram bio reads “BADDIE stealing your man since 1928”.
The 86-year-old has gained hundreds of thousands of followers via her posts and is now a bonafide model.
When asked how the whole thing got started Baddie told Paper Mag that it was all due to her great-granddaughter.
“I was staying with my granddaughter one week — or my great-granddaughter, rather, and we were just fooling around. She said, “Why don’t we do this, Granna?” And so we did. We had no idea that it was going to go the way it has. It was started by fun and just went from there,” she told the magazine. “Even in my old age, I’ve never really done anything noteworthy until now. I would love to get other old people active instead of just sitting around all day doing nothing, acting like life is over.
“There’s a lot of people that don’t like me. They hate me. They want me to die. They put that on Twitter! They want nothing to do with me. There are even fakes like GrannyWinkle, but that’s just not me. I’m Baddie Winkle. We’ve tried to get them off of Twitter and we will eventually. They’re basics. I pray for them.”
