Theft robbery

Meet the 94-year-old woman who is still slaying.

Typically, people lose interest in partying and other activities associated with those who are still in their early 20s because they begin to feel old by the time they reach the age of 40. Apparently, this is an outlier for Baddie Winkle. Here's what you need to know about Baddie Winkle in case you haven't heard of her before. 

Helen Ruth Elam is an American internet celebrity who goes by the name Baddie Winkle. Helen, a native of Kentucky, came up with the catchphrase "Stealing your man since 1928" when she was 85 years old and went viral online.

Currently, Helen is one of the most followed seniors on Instagram, with 3.3 million followers. 

Well, I'm sure you're wondering what she does on social media to make herself so popular; well, Helen posts pictures of herself dressed in some of the most fashionable clothing, that would normally be promoted by young ladies that are probably in their 20s; one could say that she got so popular because she has been slaying on Instagram. 

Given that she has over 3 million followers, Helen is undoubtedly raking in a lot of cash from Instagram. She no doubt has sponsors who pay her to post about their products and wear their clothing. 

Well, we have to give it to Helen for being so self-assured; it's not often that an elderly person, especially in her field, makes waves online. 

Companies are always on the lookout for young people to sell their products, but sometimes they want something a little unusual, and Helen fits the bill.
