Miley Cyrus Enters the Kim Kardashian West Twitter Feud with Bette Midler

Of course, this is the kind of a zany crack that in Midler’s day would’ve just been considered good fun but is now cause for an all-out war, and that’s exactly what happened.
Kim clapped back hard, inferring that Midler was old (“I know it’s past your bedtime”) and then accusing her of being a “fake friend” since Midler sent her a gift some time back.
Chloe Grace Moretz, who inserted herself in the melee with some comments about women’s bodies, slut shaming and the like, prompted Kim to cut her too. (“Let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is.”) Yeesh! Those Wests do NOT play.
Apparently feeling a need to make peace, Miley Cyrus (who, just days before was slammed for posting an unflattering photo of Jodie Sweetin during her tumultuous days) decided to chime in, posting a KIMOJI (that’s a Kardashian emoji, for the uninitiated) of Kim’s rump with a characteristically wacky plea for calm.
Midler, for her part, seems to have closed the loop by tweeting to Kim, “I never tried to fake friend you. Looks like anyone can take a selfie but not everyone can take a joke.”
