People have taken to social media to share their frustrations with the site. One person tweeted: “Reddit down meaning I actually might have to work…” Another added: “why did Reddit have to go down when I’m trying to use it??”

And a third commented: “Reddit has the audacity of being down while I’m trying to catch up on VPR and I want to scream.”

However, Reddit is yet to make an official statement on the outage.
