By now, you’ve heard about the egg, which excelled a photo of Kylie Jenner’s daughter, Stormi, on Sunday as the most-liked pole on Instagram.
But who did the egg? Whose dumb but ultimately successful meaning was this?
Here’s what we know so far 😛 TAGEND
1. The egg history holder goes by “Henrietta.”
Henrietta is, according to each of these reports from BuzzFeed News, a “chicken from the British countryside.”
2. The chronicle owner, nonetheless, claims to live in London.
“I’m an individual living in London, ” the account incumbent told The Independentearlier the coming week . They too revealed that they only have 400 adherents on their personal Instagram account.
Sources close to Mashable have also independently confirmed that the egg is a humankind who lives in the London area.
3. The egg’s figure is Eugene, allegedly.
In some interviews, the detail owner goes by the appoint Eugene, bypassing the whole “Henrietta” schtick entirely.
4. The person who did the egg was participating in dry January at the time.
Nothing multiplies creativity like suddenly not drinking.
5. Devotees of the egg are called the “Egg Gang.”
6. The egg accounting follows 928 histories and two hashtags.
The hashtags are #WSHH — WorldStarHipHop — and #FatBoySSE, who is a rapper from New Jersey.
7. Supreme Patty is a suspect.
So far, the only public figure to have implied responsibility for the egg is Supreme Patty, an Instagram idol who smokes red-hot sauce and is well known for squeezing lemon juice into his own gazes. While Patty didn’t allegation he did the egg outright, one of his friends did “ve said” in a TMZ interview.( This is, of course, to be taken with a lemon-sized grain of salt .)
For what it’s worth, we do not think Supreme Patty did the egg. It’s most likely that he’s just capitalizing on the big-hearted meme of the moment. He did get an egg tattoo, though, so kudos on committing to the fragment. And the egg does follow him on Instagram.
We’ve reached out to Supreme Patty and will modernize this pole if we discover back.
8. Okay, the egg chronicle says it’s not Supreme Patty.
In an Instagram story posted on Tuesday, @world_record_egg claimed the TMZ story was bogus. “We’re still anonymous. Fake news, ” they wrote.
So we guess it’s not Supreme Patty. Stay carolled for more egg updates.
