Kylie Jenner, you had an egg-cellent run.
The 21-year-old’s most-liked photo has officially been upended thanks to a picture of…an egg. Yes, a regular stock image of a brown egg.
It all goes back to Jan. 4 when the Instagram profile world_record_egg uploaded its one and only fateful post. “Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram,” the caption says next to the picture of the egg. “Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.”
They sure did.
Although the profile has a mere (in comparison) 2 million followers, the image of the egg received over 20 million likes. If we’re contrasting the numbers, the makeup mogul has 123 million followers. The ratio is off somewhere, but somehow the odds worked in the favor of the record seekers.
Kylie’s former record-holding photo was from just under a year ago.
She posted a photo of her daughter on Feb. 6, 2018 and captioned it “Stormi Webster.” Beautiful baby Stormi turns 1 on Feb. 1 and her mom is already getting prepped for her birthday festivities, which will undoubtedly be over-the-top and fabulous.
Despite losing out to the egg by 2 million likes (pretty impressive reign nonetheless), Kylie posted a clapback of her own on Sunday night. She shared a video of a meme that said “Kylie when she sees the world record egg account.” She captioned the video “Take that little egg.”
“First, let’s feel the ground,” she told the camera as she touched the asphalt. After confirming that the ground was “really hot,” she cracked the shell on the sidewalk and watched it bubble and become a rather unorthodox sunny-side up egg.
Moral of the story: don’t dethrone the queen of Instagram likes.
The egg photo may have her beat by 2 million likes, but can this food item consider itself one of America’s wealthiest celebrities? Didn’t think so.
