Popular social, news, and entertainment website Reddit is reportedly suffering issues, with users worldwide unable to access the site on Thursday, July 11.

The popular website is home to thousands of communities, allowing users to discuss their favorite pastimes or current events with people who share the same interests from around the world.

While the website refers to itself as the front page of the internet, it appears it is currently dealing with some sort of issue, as reports from across the globe suggest that people are unable to access the site.

According to DownDetector, Reddit first started having issues at 3:00 AM EST, but have continued to get worse as the day has gone on, with thousands of complaints from users pouring in as they struggle to access the site.

Users who are trying to access the site are being met with an error code, which claims that the site’s “CDN is unable to reach their servers,” while others claim they are being met with a “503 Error Code” when they attempt to sign in.

Users are being greeted with an error code when they try to access the site.

The issues appear to be taking place worldwide, but most reports are coming from the east coast of the United States and the United Kingdom, with a handful of complaints coming from eastern Europe, Malaysia and Australia.

Reddit themselves have yet to address the issues with the site, with the company remaining silent on social media as to when they can expect the problems to end.

Users are having issues with the site worldwide.

The company does have a status website, however it appears that they have yet to update this, as it claims that all of Reddit’s systems are functional, although this is clearly not the case.

We’ll be sure to update this post with more information as it becomes available, or if Reddit push a fix to allow users back on the site.

Fortnite players know all too well what it’s like to land in a hot spot and struggle to find a weapon, including TimTheTatMan, who hilariously rage quit after he found nothing but fishing rods.

Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has jumped back on the Fortnite bandwagon in Season 5. The latest update has brought a lot of old stars back, and for the most part, the reception has been positive.

In Tim’s case though, it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses. He wanted to enjoy everything the new season has to offer. Instead, all he got was fishing rods and lots of them.

TimTheTatman is a talented gamer in his own right, but he’s also hilarious to watch.

TimTheTatman descended onto Salty Towers with his squad, looking for an ideal place to land. Unfortunately, the two vacant rooftops he saw both had fishing rods. “Oh good, a fishing pole, oh good, another fishing pole, okay,”  he said.

He decided to land on a house instead. “If I come in here and there’s a fishing pole, I’m leaving,” he said while breaking into the attic with his pickaxe. “I’m literally not kidding. I’m backing out if there’s a fishing pole in here.”

Fortunately, there wasn’t one in the attic, but there was nothing else either, so he dove a little deeper. He dropped down the staircase, turned left it into the kitchen, and hilariously found another fishing rod staring into his soul.

It’s not ideal to find a fishing rod as your first weapon in Fortnite.

Without saying a word, TimTheTatman opened up the menu, quit the game, and placed his hands on his head in disbelief. “I’m not doing it,” he said, as he struggled to find the words to sum up his rage.

“The two guns I was going to land on [were] fishing poles,” he added. “I open up a door and go left, fishing pole. I’ll try again. When you guys are done, I’ll be ready to go again. I’m not going to play that game. I’m not going to do it.”

There’s nothing worse than landing in a spot surrounded by enemies and finding nothing useful.

Still, TimTheTatman’s fans were rolling on the floor laughing after seeing him get so riled up about it. Plus, the fact it happened to be a fishing rod made it even funnier.
