Hip-Hop Had The Most Hilarious Reactions To The Instagram Blackout

Hip-Hop Had The Most Hilarious Reactions To The Instagram Blackout

Facebook and Instagram were among the apps that suffered a global site crash.

Published March 14th

The worldwide social media blackout that resulted in major crashes on Facebook and Instagram on Wednesday (March 13) left several digital mediums, influencers and everyday users at a standstill.

Beginning around noon, the functionalities of the two sites significantly began slowing down and, ultimately, ended in a complete shutdown of the sites. Users were unable to post, comment, like, refresh timelines, and for some, log in to their own accounts. Other Facebook-spearheaded mobile apps experienced technical difficulties too, including messaging platform WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. Social media users everywhere scrambled to find answers amid the shutdown, spurring the #instagramdown and #facebookdown hashtags on one platform that did stand strong throughout the digital crash storm: Twitter. 

While Facebook took to its official Twitter handle to confirm that the ordeal was not the result of a hacking situation, Facebook executives assured that the technical team was working diligently to resolve it. But in the meantime, we left it to Black Twitter and hip-hop to be the comedic relief everyone needed during the digital disaster.

From Cardi B to Ice-T, check out some of the most hilarious reactions we saw from your favorite musicians on the Instagram and Facebook apocalypse of 2019 below:
