American Kailia Posey died on Tuesday May 3 at the age of 16. The teenager had become famous after her appearance on an American show, and her face had become a “meme” on the web. The causes of his death remain unknown.

Kailia Posey, 16, was one of the (many) faces of the internet. The young American died on Tuesday, May 3, as her mother announced in a post on Facebook.

“I have no words. A beautiful baby girl is gone. Please respect our privacy in the loss of Kailia. My forever baby,” her mother, Marcy Posey, wrote, sharing a photo of her daughter. Internet users have abounded in condolences. It must be said that the teenager was very famous on the web.

It is the face with the devilish smile of the little girl who had made her essential on social networks, to the point of becoming a “meme”, these images taken up and declined en masse on the internet. Without forgetting his cult line “I like to win money!” (“I love making money” in French). His expression has thus been taken up around the world and transformed into a GIF, often used to express envy or malice on social networks.

The little girl had sketched this cult grimace by participating in the show Toddlers & Tiaras, an American reality show in which children participate in beauty contests.
