AceShowbiz - The title of king of the internet has now been given to an egg. After a photo of an egg on a plain, white background went viral on Instagram and even beat Kylie Jenner's most-liked post record, the bizarre image has now amassed more than 43 million likes on the photo-sharing platform. With that, it officially becomes the most-liked internet post of all time.
The record was previously held by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" music video, which had 31.5 million likes since it was released back in January 2017. Despite that, the visuals is still the most-watched YouTube video of all time with 5 billion views. It was the first video to reach the milestone on the video-sharing site.
While neither Luis or Daddy has yet to comment on this matter, Kylie has responded to news of her Instagram record getting broken by the egg. Sharing a video of herself cracking an egg onto the ground in attempt to fry the egg, the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star wrote alongside the funny clip, "Take that little egg."
Her sisters, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, have also weighed in on the news when they stopped by "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen". Kim said, "That was kind of genius marketing, probably," while Khloe joked, "I think Kris Jenner's gonna buy that egg really soon."
Originally posted on January 5 by an Instagram user who goes by the name "world_record_egg," the image was shared with the sole purpose of crushing Kylie's most-liked post record. "Let's set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Besting the current world record by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this," so the caption read.
