We did not see this coming.
If we were of the gambling persuasion, we would have lost BIG money had we bet on who would be named the most-liked celebrity on Instagram.
So who was the lucky Instagrammer to come out on top?
None other than Kris Jenner, the all-powerful matriarch of the Kardashian/Jenner empire!
This comes after their research assigned celebs “sentiment scores”. These scores looked at the rate of positive engagement with their posts, examining who received friendly feedback rather than negative vibes in the comments. (We guess that rules out Taylor Swift after her snake emoji debacle. Kendall’s Pepsi ad probably did her no favours in her comments section either.)
Joining Kris at the top in terms of being well-loved on Instagram were stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Khloé Kardashian and Lady Gaga.
The study also looked at the most-hated celebs on Instagram in terms of negative feedback.
Interestingly, the Kardashian/Jenner fam were well-represented in this list, too.
Among the top 10 of the most disliked were Kourtney Kardashian, Cara Delevingne, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.
Ah well… you win some, you lose some.
