Rest in peace, Kim Kardashian the chicken, that is. The human Kim Kardashian lives on to provide necessary consistency in these turbulent times with her nude selfies.

According to Bette Midler, the chicken she named after the reality star has tragically passed away of a yeast infection.

“We have the Kardashian sisters, actually, our chickens,” Midler told reporters at the New York Restoration Project’s Spring Picnic on June 1.

You might assume that Midler named her chickens after the Kardashians following her recent social media tiffs with Kim, but she’s been the wind beneath the Kardashian chickens’ wings for several years now.

Last year, Midler discussed her chickens on Jimmy Kimmel Live and sang some of Kim’s most profound tweets.

Meanwhile, the human Kim Kardashian is trying to preserve life in her own way.
