But that record has been fried by an image of an egg.

The simple snapshot of an ordinary brown egg garnered over 23 million likes since January 4, and dethroned Jenner's adorable photo of her then-newborn baby Stormi holding the new mom's thumb. The new record is 20 million.

Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)!

"This is madness. What a time to be alive", the Egg Gang account wrote.

As of Sunday evening, Egg Gang (as the account has named itself), has 16 million likes, meaning it's already in the history books as Instagram's second most-liked post, supplanting Justin Bieber's engagement announcement from July past year. "We got this", the caption read.

The user explained to the online news portal that they made a decision to beat the world record just as a challenge but had nothing personal against Kylie Jenner. Thank you all so much for your support and messages. Why an egg? Is it an ironic nod to Jenner's original record-breaking photo about the development of life into a living, breathing creature?

Right, so we're just going to lie down for a few minutes and process this information for a sec.

While the reality TV star and Instagram royalty seemed unbothered about being upstaged, she clapped back on Monday (Jan 14), with a reposted Snapchat video of herself cracking an egg on a hot sidewalk. Only time will tell!
