Does Kylie Jenner Still Have the Pig She Infamously Mistook for a Chicken?
Though that incredible moment aired years ago, we’re still laughing at the makeup mogul’s entertaining fault that advertently launched hilarious Vine memes.
But there’s one thing about that clip that we’ve questioned for some time now, and that’s whether or not Jenner ended up keeping the pig?
Kris Jenner gave her the pig as a housewarming gift
It’s no secret that Jenner has a love for animals.
Since she was a little girl, the makeup mogul has always had pets and even dreamed of building her own farm that would house all kinds of different creatures.
So, when Kris Jenner surprised her with a baby pig, the Kylie Cosmetics CEO was so excited that she hilariously mistook it for another farm animal.
The KUWTK‘s scene starts with the momager holding the little piggy as she’s calling up to her daughter to come downstairs for a surprise.
As she’s making her way down to the foyer, Kylie can be heard in the background asking, “Is that a chicken?”
After getting a little closer, the makeup mogul realizes that her mom’s actually holding a baby pig — which the momager named Wilbur.
Following that infamous scene, social media was set ablaze with fans poking fun at Jenner for her hysterical animal mix-up.
The clip launched thousands of hilarious Vine memes, and though many people were convinced that Jenner didn’t know the difference between a pig and a chicken, she soon reassured fans that she does have some basic knowledge of farm animals.
Jenner explained the reason for her mix-up
Amid the hilarious memes, the makeup mogul took to Snapchat to share why she mistook the pig for a chicken.
“Everyone keeps tweeting me this one Vine of my mom getting me a pig, and I mistake it for a chicken,” Kylie said on her Snapchat story in 2016. “But here’s the real story behind me thinking that it’s a chicken. So I love chickens. My mom asked me what I wanted for my housewarming gift, and I told her I want chickens. I want a chicken coop. I’m, like, dying to have a chicken. We had, like, over 10 conversations about it, so when I saw her downstairs with something all wrapped up in her arms, and I was upstairs, of course, I assumed that it was a f*cking chicken.”
She added, “I never asked for a pig. We had, like, 10 conversations about this da*n chicken.”
What happened to the pig?
Though Jenner thought she was getting a chicken, it seemed like she was over the moon to receive a pig as a housewarming gift.
So much so that we wonder, does she still have the little piggy today?
During a 2017 interview with E! News, Jenner revealed what ended up happening to little Wilbur — but rest assured, it’s nothing bad.
“I didn’t end up keeping it,” Jenner revealed. “It didn’t like us too much. And I was like, ‘Mom, I don’t want a pig. I want a chicken.'”
Jenner eventually did get a chicken of her own which she ended up naming Eddie.
As for little Wilbur, no one knows where he is today, but no matter what, he’ll always have a special place in our hearts and will forever be known as the piggy that sent the internet into a frenzy.
