Kylie Jenner loses ‘Most Liked Instagram Post’ to an Egg

Instagram's most-liked post is going to be an egg, sorry Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner has lost the world record of having the most liked Instagram post to a humble egg. It's a picture of an egg.

As of Sunday evening, Egg Gang (as the account has named itself), has 16 million likes, meaning it's already in the history books as Instagram's second most-liked post, supplanting Justin Bieber's engagement announcement from July previous year.

The user explained to the online news portal that they chose to beat the world record just as a challenge but had nothing personal against Kylie Jenner. "We got this", the caption under the sole photo on the account reads.

It would also be the first non-human in Instagram's top 20 most-liked posts, with celebrities such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Beyonce and Selena Gomez owning the lion's share of top photos. "YOU DID IT EGG!" cheered another.

Jenner has since hilariously responded, posting a Snapchat video of her cracking an egg onto a road. Posted Feb. 6, 2018, the picture shows her daughter's tiny hand wrapped around her thumb.

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.
