Unable to Delete "ZoomAudioDevice" on Mac

As the title states, I cannot delete the ZoomAudioDevice.kext (kernel extension) from my Mac. It claims I have permissions to read/write, but will not let me delete it or move it to the trash. The official Zoom support for how to uninstall explicitly states to simply find the kext and move it to the trash so I'm at a loss of how to proceed.

 

I have also tried reinstalling zoom to no avail. I haven't used zoom in several years and just want this crap gone.

Uninstall Zoom version 4.4. 53909.0617 and below

Folder: /Applications/ Move to Trash: zoom.us.app.

Folder: ~/Applications/ Move to Trash: zoom.us.app.

Folder: /System/Library/Extensions/ Move to Trash: ZoomAudioDevice.kext.

Folder: ~/Library/Application\ Support/ Move to Trash: zoom.us.

I am already aware of this process. I attempted to follow these instructions but I am unable to move “ZoomAudioDevice.kext” to trash, as per my original post.
