Kylie Jenner has a Message for the Egg that Dethroned Her | BellaNaija

Originally posted on January 5, 2019, by the account world_record_egg, the simple photo of an egg on a plain, white background is rapidly approaching the 18.1 million "likes" required to steal the record from Kylie Jenner. The reality star's baby-name announcement became the most popular post on the social media site on Wednesday, surpassing Beyoncé's pregnancy announcement of 2017.

The previous record-holder of the most liked post in Instagram was the first photo of Jenner's daughter which was posted on February 6, 2018.

The image was shared by the account world_record_egg - which, according to TMZ, was created earlier this month - on Friday, 4 January.

In response, Kylie reposted a meme: "Kylie when she sees the world record egg account" it reads, along with a video of Kylie cracking an egg on a pavement. "Now where's our blue tick?" What a time to be alive. I'm gonna try and get back to as many of you as possible.

It had the caption: "Take that, little egg".

Right, so we're just going to lie down for a few minutes and process this information for a sec. And for the love of all that is good in the world, stop leaving egg symbols as comments on Jenner's photo.
