Kylie Jenner previously held the record for most-liked Instagram post, which is a photo of Stormi, at over 18 million. That was until a few nights ago.
On Jan. 5 (PHT), @world_record_egg posted it’s first photo—a single brown egg—with the caption: “Let’s set a world record together and get the most-liked post on Instagram.” At first you’d think this is a huge joke but, HA, joke’s on all of us because the egg has over 36 million likes as of today.
Funnily enough, netizens showed their full support for this egg by posting tweets and memes.
I love how the world is coming together and liking a photo of AN EGG to break Kylie Jenner’s record for most liked instagram post. Truly. It’s inspiring.

imagine being kylie jenner and you’re chilling and you check your phone and find out you lost your world record of most liked picture to a fucking egg

Of course, social media isn’t the most important aspect of life, so Kylie wasn’t sour about it. She accepted defeat with a video of her cracking an egg on a sidewalk. “Take that, little egg,” she wrote. She also liked the egg’s photo so there are no sore losers here!
my favorite part about this whole world record egg thing is that Kylie Jenner liked it hahaha pic.twitter.com/YTCNkXwA45

We don’t know about you, but this egg just proved that any post can have several likes, regardless if it’s mundane or #extra. Now, what other world records is it going to break in the future? Because this mysterious food item seems to be set on dominating the world.[Harper’s Bazaar]
