Grier is a veteran actress who was wildly popular in the 70s. The 71-year-old woman is still gorgeous, but back in the day– Grier was a stone-cold fox.
The man’s now-deleted tweet caught all the smoke from eager Twitter users who were prepared to school him on the legendary Pam Grier.
Pam Grier is literally the Black equivalent of Marilyn Monroe from a sex symbol standpoint. She will be celebrated until the end of time.

Pam has to be appreciated as the fantasy of millions of ppl.
The Grier genes are extraordinary as her brother Rosie (Roosevelt) Grier was a hall of fame football player for the Rams.
I bet trying to date her was impossible, too intimidating!

Graciously, Grier thanked her supporters.
“Love all of you today for your recognition! I just saw that I was trending as I was packing boxes of clothing for donations. I don’t need half of what I have accumulated. Our country is a family in need, feed not greed. Seriously, love you.”
