Instagram’s Going Down, I’m Yelling Timber: The Best Reactions to Instagram Being Down

Whenever Instagram stops working for me, I Google, “Is Instagram down” to see if it’s down for everybody, or if it’s just my phone acting up. Since that’s been happening a lot lately, I became quite familiar with downdetector where people from around the world report outages for many different websites and apps. While Instagram was down again, I decided to compile a list of my favorite comments people wrote about it being down. While looking through the comments, I saw many basically saying the same thing, ‘It’s STILL down?!’ which I related to, after checking if it was back up multiple times throughout the day and being disappointed. Because there were an abundance of people whining about it being down, Samuel He wanted to take it back to the days before social media and commented, “can yall STOP crying go take a walk to the park or something.” Sounding like a true Instagram model, Cersai Lannister wrote, “Seven hours without Instagram. My hands are tingling and my brain hurts. MY LIFE IS SLOWLY LOSING ITS PURPOSE!!!!!” Subsequently, a user named Matt commented, “Instagram models currently out of a job. This is a blessing in disguise.” Another user, Maja, commented the solution to everything, “put it in rice.” Maybe that’s why Instagram finally started working again. Finally, user Klebold said, “Well cya around when Instagram crashes again, peace-”
