Egg beats out Kylie Jenner for most liked Instagram photo

Kylie Jenner and a regular brown egg

The photo, posted online to the account world_record_egg by the "Egg Gang" on January 4, received more than 18 million likes as of Sunday evening - breaking Jenner's record.

Originally posted on January 5, 2019, by the account world_record_egg, the simple photo of an egg on a plain, white background is rapidly approaching the 18.1 million "likes" required to steal the record from Kylie Jenner. The stunning image that managed to break through the Kardashian-Jenner social media stronghold, you ask?

"Let's set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram", the post read.

Kylie's picture of her daughter Stormi, posted in 2018, previously held the record.


While it is relatively unclear as to who hatched this idea to beat Kylie Jenner's record, BuzzFeed News reached out to the account only to receive a reply revealing that it is being run by a chicken named "Henrietta", who laid the egg.

The first photo of Jenner's newborn daughter, posted on February 6, 2018, was the leader until this new, mysterious challenger appeared.

The picture of the brown egg has received, along with the all-important 21 million likes, more than 8 lakh appreciative comments.

And Twitter is in fits!
