Bette Midler Named Her Chickens After Kardashians — and Kim Died of a Yeast Infection
Shut down the Internet, Bette Midler is the queen of trolling!
The storied singer revealed to People that she named the chickens in her upstate New York home after the Kardashian sisters but, alas, tragedy struck a few years ago when Kim died of a yeast infection — MIC DROP.
“We have the Kardashian sisters, actually, are our chickens,” Midler, 70, said at Wednesday’s New York Restoration Project’s Spring Picnic, adding that she can no longer tell them apart after Kim’s death. Said Midler, “Kim died of a yeast infection. We had to get some different ones.”
Prior to the event, Midler threw shade and stoked the fires to the Twitter war between her and the unfeathered Kim Kardashian earlier this year, by sharing a meme and writing, “Spent yesterday cleaning out the chicken coop …. The hens are Kim, Kourtney and Khloé. And they’re exactly like their namesakes!”
As a chicken farmer, we were amused. pic.twitter.com/YIbUjLpQLF
