Betty White’s assistant is taking over the late actress’ social media profiles in an effort to honor her legacy.
The world misses Betty White and her social media presence. Whether she was posting a cute picture with an animal or a “Golden Girls” throwback, the late actress brought smiles to people’s faces. In an effort to honor her legacy, White’s assistant Kiersten Mikelas will continue posting on her behalf.
In her first Instagram post on White’s account, Mikelas explains why she is taking over the icon’s profiles. It turns out that Betty White’s estate offered her the opportunity.
“Hello everyone! Kiersten again,” she begins. “Betty’s estate has ver graciously offered me the opportunity to manage Betty’s social media accounts moving forward (no, I have not done this previously). I am so grateful, and look forward to posting fun and meaningful memories.”
Her assistant goes on to say that she will be be creating uplifting comment about “the things that mattered to her [White] most…animals, the environment, being kind, all that she embodied.”
Mikelas asks for fans’ patience and offers a few pictures of the ducks that inhabited Betty White’s pool.
“In the meantime here’s a pic of one of the ducks that took up residence in Betty’s pool during the COVID craziness. The ducks provided daily entertainment.”
