Youtube is Down Worldwide

I tried watching some videos on YouTube but they wouldn't load. At first I thought maybe it was my computer but after googling some articles have come up stating that YouTube has crashed all over the world. I wonder if the Russians took it down.

15. They have also

increased world misery by 23 percent. Fuck them if they did this. I like to unwind and listen to random music videos at the end of the day along with watching random stuff.

I was going to post the link I'm watching to see if it worked for you, but it came up internal server error like this:

if i remember correctly, it was an afternoon. But i thought then that this did not bode well for th eelection. By then even MSM was reporting on Russian infiltration of voter reg databases. Was there ever an explanation for what happened that day?

But it's just YouToob.

Even the Philly cops said to stop calling..

26. I can see why Philadelphia residents want

to call the police. Their team the Sixers are getting their ass whooped by the Celtics. Not a fan of either team but I expected a competitive game and it turned out to be a skunker hence why I tried going to youtube. They have must have tried to do the same thing after seeing their team getting blown out.

27. Is YouTube down? Video sharing website crashes on October 16

If you are unable to watch YouTube videos, you're not the only one, as the site appears to have crashed entirely for users worldwide.

<snip>

"In a very rare occurence, video sharing website has completely gone down, not loading any videos or menus on desktop or mobile versions.

Reports from around the world quickly came in, shared on social media as users complained that they were unable to watch videos on Tuesday evening.

YouTube has not had a major crash of this kind in recent memory, with only small bugs and glitches typically affecting the site's status.

YouTube is on average the 2nd most visited website in the world, and this is the first major crash of the website in years."

I just went back and could open a few and then a third one wouldn't open. Hit and miss.

It's the black screen message saying there was an error and to try again later.
