KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)- She's not the typical super-athlete or rock star, but young people waited in line for hours Saturday to meet Baddie Winkle in person.
The internet sensation drew a crowd of mostly teens and young adults at West Town mall. They all lined up to have a few moments chatting with her at the Sephora store. Baddie, or 87-year-old Helen Van Winkle, has a colorful, fun fashion sense that became public after she lost her husband and son in the 90s. She decided to just have fun with the Baddie character. Her great-granddaughter started her Instagram account that now has more than two million followers.
