Kylie Jenner has lost the "Most Liked Instagram Post" position which she occupied on the platform with a photo of her daughter Stormi, to an egg.

Some egg-citing news this morning. The stunning image that managed to break through the Kardashian-Jenner social media stronghold, you ask?

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 a year ago. "Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)!"

As of Sunday, the picture had almost 18.2 million likes from Jenner's more than 123 million Instagram followers.

Sen. Kamala Harris to announce presidential run
But expectations were tempered when a spokesperson for Harris told The Hill no imminent announcement was planned. A book tour and a flurry of TV appearances enable the California senator to launch a campaign on her own terms.

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.

As fans know all too well, before this, it was the younger of the Jenner sisters who had the most liked post on Instagram.

But the record-breaking egg pic proves that the power of the collective internet is greater than the one of the Kar-Jenners since the original goal of the account owner was just that - to take Kylie's throne from her.
