By now, you’ve heard about the egg, which beaten 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 eventually successful opinion was this?
Here’s what we know even further 😛 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 detail owner, however, claims to live in London.
“I’m an individual living in London, ” the account incumbent told The Independentearlier the coming week . They also 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 man who lives in the London area.
3. The egg’s name is Eugene, allegedly.
In some interrogations, the detail owner goes by the name Eugene, bypassing the whole “Henrietta” schtick entirely.
4. The person who did the egg was participating in dry January at the time.
Nothing spawns clevernes like abruptly not drinking.
5. Fan of the egg are called the “Egg Gang.”
6. The egg detail follows 928 reports 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 star who inhales red-hot sauce and is known for squeezing lemon juice into his own seeings. While Patty didn’t claim 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 reckon Supreme Patty did the egg. It’s more likely that he’s precisely capitalizing on the large-scale meme of the moment. He did get an egg tattoo, though, so kudos on committing to the bit. And the egg does follow him on Instagram.
We’ve reached out to Supreme Patty and will modernize this upright if we sounds back.
8. Okay, the egg note 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.
