By now, you’ve heard about the egg, which excelled a photo of Kylie Jenner’s daughter, Stormi, on Sunday as the most-liked post on Instagram.
But who did the egg? Whose dumb but ultimately successful theme was this?
Here’s what we know so far 😛 TAGEND
1. The egg note holder goes by “Henrietta.”
Henrietta is, according to each of these reports from BuzzFeed News, a “chicken from the British countryside.”
2. The accounting holder, however, claims to live in London.
“I’m private individuals living in London, ” the history incumbent told The Independentearlier the coming week . They too revealed that they only have 400 followers on their personal Instagram account.
Sources close to Mashable have also independently confirmed that the egg is a person who lives in the London area.
3. The egg’s reputation is Eugene, allegedly.
In some interrogations, the account incumbent goes by the refer Eugene, bypassing the whole “Henrietta” schtick entirely.
4. The person who did the egg was participating in dry January at the time.
Nothing reproductions imagination like suddenly not drinking.
5. Love of the egg are called the “Egg Gang.”
6. The egg chronicle follows 928 accountings 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 superstar who inhale hot sauce and is known for squeezing lemon juice into his own sees. While Patty didn’t say he did the egg outright, one of his sidekicks did say so 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 believe Supreme Patty did the egg. It’s more likely that he’s just capitalizing on the big meme of the moment. He did get an egg tattoo, though, so kudos on committing to the fleck. And the egg does follow him on Instagram.
We’ve contacted out to Supreme Patty and will inform this upright if we discover back.
8. Okay, the egg history 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 aria for more egg updates.
