An Egg Beat Kylie Jenner’s Record for Most-Liked Instagram Post

This egg is now the most-liked Instagram photo in history

Pour one out for the Kardashians: A picture of a single egg is now the most-liked Instagram photo ever, racking up more than 28 million likes. That record was previously held by Kylie Jenner’s birth announcement, which garnered a relatively paltry 18 million likes. In response, the young cosmetics mogul posted a video of her cracking an egg on the sidewalk, as one does.
