Barbara Walters has died at 93. She was a feminist pioneer and the queen of TV journalists whose ability to interview subjects lead to not only some of the most important stories of our time but also some of the most bonkers viral moments on the internet.

“Barbara Walters passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by loved ones,” Walters’ spokesperson Cindi Berger told CNN in a statement. “She lived her life with no regrets. She was a trailblazer not only for female journalists but for all women.”

Friends, loved ones, and fans took to Twitter to celebrate the trailblazer’s life and remember the moments that made her the icon she is. For instance, her interview with V. Stiviano. When Walters asks Stiviano to describe her relationship with Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling, Stiviano said, “I’m Mr. Sterling’s right hand arm. Man. I’m Mr. Sterling everything. I’m his confidant. His best friend. His silly rabbit.” 

That’s just one of her incredible interviews that set her apart from the rest: She also called out Sean Connery for saying that slapping women was fine; she told the Kardashians that they didn’t have any talents; she read an incredible line about “slapping a bitch” to Mariah Carey; she was fearless, and became known as a journalist who wouldn’t shy away from any question, no matter how outlandish they may be.
