Stock Image of an Egg Breaks Kylie Jenner’s Instagram Record

nbcnewyork.comKylie 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 uploadedits one and only 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 2 million followers, the image of the egg received more than 26 million likes. The makeup mogul has 123 million followers.

Jenner’s former record-holding photo was from just under a year ago.

She posted a photo of her daughter on Feb. 6, 2018, and wrote, “Stormi Webster.” Baby Stormi turns 1 on Feb. 1 and her mom is already getting prepped for her birthday festivities.

Losing out to the egg by more than 8 million likes, Jenner posted a clapback on Sunday night. She shared a video of a homemade meme showing her brandishing an egg 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. Confirming that the ground was “really hot,” she cracked the egg’s shell on it and watched the egg bubble into a rather unorthodox sunny-side up.

What a 2019 headline! I always tell my friends that it’s hilarious that a celebrity can basically post anything and get a bajillion likes. I remember one time that Wiz Khalifa posted like a dented coca cola can in the trash and it got 15 million likes. So it’s sweet hilarious justice that a picture of a damn egg would end up breaking Kylie’s IG record.

It also says a lot about where we are as humans.
