Who’re the Step Chickens?
The preferred cult is The Step Chickens, and it is led by TikTok consumer @chunkysdead, aka 26-year-old Melissa who posts darkish and hilariously bizarre (and positively inappropriate) TikToks. Step Hen members have blue profile pictures of a zoomed-in Melissa face to point that they are a part of the Step Chickens cult. It began in early Could, when @chunkysdead requested her followers to give you a catchy title for her cult, and apparently “Step Hen” received.
Why Step Chickens? @chunkysdead, who already had a pretty big following earlier than it went “cult” standing, has a factor for chickens and wears a shirt with a hen on it and likewise owns a hen go well with she generally clothes up in for TikToks. @Chunkysdead solely initiation requirement is that you simply change your TikTok avatar to hers. And be a commit follower for all times, in fact.
