This Egg Beat Kylie Jenner For The Most Liked Post On Instagram

taylor.sakellis 14 Jan 2019

Well 2019 is off to quite the start — and honestly, why am I even surprised? Maybe 2019 will be the year the h8ters win, and the Kardashian/Jenner clan will be dethroned as social media mavens.

Waaaaaaay back in February 2018, Kylie Jenner broke the WORLD RECORD for most liked Instagram photo with this pic her baby, Stormi Webster.

Which really is a beautiful picture that makes me weep.

Since then, some photos have come close to dethroning Kylie, like this one of Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin.

At nearly 14 million likes, the couple came close to the world record after announcing their marriage with this cute pic.

For nearly a year Kylie remained on top — until there was a new star in town. This is 2019 man, crazy times.

To celebrate here's a 2012 gif of Selena Gomez cracking and frying an egg. Remember when she had the most liked Insta photo of all time?

The egg has also had a lot to say, which I mean is fair as it is their special day and all.

"We're only just getting started" the egg said, proudly.

Then a few hours later they posted THIS onto their story!

THERE'S GONNA BE EGG GANG MERCH, SON!

Considering that social media is the bread and butter of the Kardashian legacy, I'm sure Kylie's sisters aren't too thrilled about the whole thing.

Youtube | E! Entertainment

Understandably because I too would be upset.

Their Instagram accounts have taken years to build up. Years to create the perfect aesthetic. Years to gain millions of likes.

And this egg just came in here like they owned the place.

The egg has become a full on Insta celeb, and we know that because of how many times it's been meme'd, lol.

Here is the egg on Ellen. Classic Insta fame move.

We love a meme revival when the time is RIGHT.

The internet really came together for this egg, and for that I say thank you very much!

Load Comments

Who would ever do such a thing?? Who doesn't want to be a part of history?!

1 like = 1 prayer for the universe!

Load Comments

And that's the true tea!

Do I feel good about how many times I refreshed the egg post? No. But do I regret it? Absolutely NAWT.

Load Comments

We are all the egg men, amirite? (TIMELY BEATLES REFERENCE!)

Aren't we all just underdogs trying so desperately to be Insta famous?!

Load Comments

THE SHADE! THE TEA! THE FAIRY TALE OF IT ALL!

Humpty Dumpty can never catch a break, you guys! Honestly #justicefordumpty!

Load Comments

Well this ends that age old debate, doesn't it?

Thank you, Kylie, and thank you egg, for helping us solve a timeless riddle.

It's now Wikipedia official, so...

And if we know anything, it's that Wikipedia never lies to us.

Load Comments

Kylie even liked the pic of the egg! What a good sport!

People loved Kylie's show of support! See?! No hard feelings! MATURITY, PEOPLE!

Load Comments

But then, she posted this video on her Insta with the caption "take that little egg" and Insta was gagging.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN???

Load Comments

Is Kylie calling the police? Is she actually butt-hurt at the egg? Is it all a joke?

Someone call Kris! Momma Kris can help us!
