Photo of an egg becomes most popular Instagram post ever

More than 23 million people liked the post, beating record held by Kylie Jenner

This might be the most popular egg in history.

A picture of a plain egg garnered more than 23 million likes on Instagram as of early Monday morning, becoming the platform's most-liked post ever. It was first posted on January 4th by an account called - wait for it - @world_record_egg.

The previous Instagram record was held by celebrity Kylie Jenner, whose charming photo announcing her baby Stormi in February last year was liked 18 million times.

It isn’t clear why the egg was posted or whether there’s any deeper meaning to the post.


Jenner didn’t take the defeat lying down. She responded with her own post, cracking an egg on the street, which quickly got 9 million likes. “Take that little egg,” she wrote. – Bloomberg
