An egg has broken Kylie Jenner's record for Instagram's most-liked photo

An egg has successfully dethroned Kylie Jenner as the record holder of the most-liked photo on Instagram. 

An account with the handle, world_record_egg, posted a single photo of a standing egg on Jan 5, with the caption “Let’s set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this.” 

In the truest form of internet camaraderie, users from all around the world banded together to spread the word, join the #EggGang, and become #EggSoldiers. It was not an *cough* overeasy task, and the community hatched (bear with us here) plans to make it work. 

Their efforts were not in vain. The post has since gathered 23 million likes at the time of writing, with netizens flooding Kylie’s Instagram comments section with egg emojis and the hashtag #EggGang.

The previous record, held by Kylie, belonged to the first-ever photo she posted of her daughter Stormi on Feb 7, 2018. The post currently has about 18 million likes and counting.

While the reality TV star and Instagram royalty seemed unbothered about being upstaged, she clapped back on Monday (Jan 14), with a reposted Snapchat video of herself cracking an egg on a hot sidewalk. She captioned the post, “Take that, little egg.”

Fans also decided to take a crack at the bizarre record, scrambling to post memes of the feat. 

Alas, it seems like Kylie was more than willing to give up her crown, after fans spotted this:
