This egg beat Kylie Jenner’s Instagram record with 27M likes

By | January 14, 2019

The internet just told Kylie to go suck an egg.

A simple photo of a single brown egg has overtaken the youngest Kardashian-Jenner as the most liked Instagram post of all time, with more than 27 million likes and counting — and setting a world record.

The photo to beat was an image of newborn Stormi, originally posted on Feb. 6, 2018, with just 18.3 million likes. The “golden” egg, uploaded to the Instagram account world_record_egg on Jan. 5, took less than two weeks to surpass the model and lipstick mogul.

“Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this,” the top post reads.

This past Sunday, the so-called Egg Gang’s post trounced the record in a finish-line sprint — jumping from 14 million to 18 in just 3 hours. Kylie’s post managed to garner an extra 100,000 over the weekend as well in a fan effort to crush the egg. The humble egg is also the only non-human to make Instagrams top 20, sitting among the world’s most loved celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Christian Ronaldo and, of course, the Queen herself Beyonce.

Anyone in Kylie’s camp is surely walking on egg shells today.
