Jennifer Aniston’s Instagram debut breaks a record — and the internet

Jennifer Aniston has been on Instagram all of one day and she’s already picked up a whopping 10 million-plus followers as of Wednesday night.

Aniston’s first photo, a group shot of the entire Friends cast that temporarily crashed the platform, picked up a million followers in just five hours and 16 minutes, setting a Guinness World Record. That number has swelled to more than 11 million as of early Thursday.

A post shared by Jennifer Aniston (@jenniferaniston) on

“Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM,” read the caption.

The Horrible Bosses star broke the record previously set by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, whose @sussexroyal account reached 1 million followers in five hours and 45 minutes earlier this year.

In a second post on Wednesday, the 50-year-old actress made fun of temporarily crashing Instagram with a short video from her upcoming Apple TV+ series, The Morning Show, in which she stares at her phone before slamming it down in disgust.

“I swear I didn’t mean to break it,” she captioned the clip. “Thank you guys for the kind, glitchy welcome.”

Aniston’s first post comes ahead of the November 1 launch of her new Apple TV show, The Morning Show, co-starring Steve Carell and Reese Witherspoon.
