An egg has taken over the world!
Yep, you read that right. Instagram account world_record_egg uploaded a stock image of an egg on January 4 with the caption, “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.”
And guess what? The picture has garnered close to 10 million more likes than the Kylie Jenner’s shared post on Instagram which previously sat on the throne of the most-liked picture of the social network. Kylie Jenner shared an image of her holding baby Stormi Webster’s little hand last February and garnered 18 million likes.
Now this egg’s picture has collected more than 27 million likes and joined the ranks of pictures posted by Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, Cristiano Ronaldo, and other celebrities. Of course, Kylie also took notice of this egg-cellent picture that has knocked her off the top.
In response she posted a meme shared by a fan in which she is seen frying an egg on the road. “Take that little egg,” she captioned the picture. This video that Kylie has posted has already fetched more than 16 million likes and we wouldn’t be surprised if Kylie’s fans give it more of a boost and make it the most-liked post of Instagram.
However, that is a wee bit unlikely keeping in mind that the egg is ahead of Jenner by more than 10 million likes despite having only a fraction of the makeup mogul’s following. Kylie has about 123 million followers while the Egg Gang has 3 million. Let’s see where this Egg vs. Kylie race goes next or if the egg simply wins.
Feb 1 marks Stormi’s birthday and we’re expecting Jenner to throw a massive birthday bash for her little munchkin. Perhaps a picture from this day will give Kylie Jenner her most-liked picture throne back. Only time will tell.
