Kylie Jenner's birth announcement of daughter Stormi Webster on February 6 previous year was the most popular post on the photo-sharing platform with 18.3 million likes but the egg, posted only 10 days ago, has already amassed 29.9 million.

It's the only post from the account @world_record_egg. "Let's set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram".

In a mixture of silly internet happenings and a collective distaste for a certain celebrity family: the record for most likes on Instagram was recently snatched by a simple picture of an egg, beating out a post by Kylie Jenner which previously held the title. An interesting fact is that it beat the photo of Kylie Jenner and her daughter Stormi Webster, through which the young entrepreneur announced the arrival of her baby girl.

French media denounce violent "yellow vest" attacks on press
Yellow vest protestors arm themselves with metal bars during a demonstration in Bourges, central France, Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019. The interior ministry said there were 32,000 protesters nationwide as of 2:00 pm (1300 GMT), including 8,000 in Paris.

"Take that little egg", Kylie jokingly captioned the video, which has already been viewed over 25.7 million times.

It's the second time in a matter of days that a social media record has been smashed. Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa surpassed a chicken-nugget-loving United States teen by posting the most retweeted tweet ever this month. The Egg gang is trying to do the same on Twitter by trying to get more than 5.3 million retweets. Maezawa had dethroned 2017's big viral success, Carter Wilkerson, who gained the retweet record with his request to garner enough support for Wendy's to give him free chicken nuggets for life. He racked up 3.5 million retweets.
