Video sharing platform YouTube appears to have suffered another major outage on June 2, as users particularly in the East Coast of the United States are reporting errors logging in.

As the second most visited website in the world, it’s rare for the site to experience big outages, with the last in recent memory back in October 2018.

On June 2nd, at approximately 3pm eastern time, Twitter became inundated with users reporting that they were unable to log in, being met with an error screen, or even an entirely blank YouTube homepage. 

The outage appeared to be concentrated in the east coast.

Update: New outage map data from Josh Pescatore on Twitter also appears to show major outages in many European countries too.

Drama Alert host and popular YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem was among the first to report the outage, with many of his followers confirming the problem.

Many other prominent YouTubers, many of whom rely on the platform for their income, also confirmed the issues, and were also having problems uploading, even if they were able to log in.

Update, 3:54 PM EST, June 2: Team YouTube has now confirmed they are investigating problems with YouTube outages, and working on a fix.

Snapchat down too?

Along with reports that YouTube had crashed, users also noticed issues with Snapchat, which seemed to simultaneously begin malfunctioning on June 2.

It’s not clear if the issues are related, but given the timing, it seems likely. It could be an issue with Google servers causing the widespread outage.

We will keep this post updated as more information becomes available.

A fan of popular YouTuber Corpse Husband has taken her dedication to the next level by getting an image of his hair tattooed on her, after he posted a picture of a single strand of his hair to celebrate one million Instagram followers.

Corpse Husband is a YouTuber who has experienced a rather abrupt surge in popularity this year, accumulating a wave of new fans after jumping on the Among Us hype, scoring views in the many millions for both his old and new content.

He started YouTube in 2015, and focused primarily on narrating spooky stories online with his mesmerizingly deep voice, though notably has not yet revealed his face.

His viewers are certainly passionate, and even won out against possibly the biggest fandom on the planet when fans of Corpse Husband and BTS tried to see who could ‘ratio’ Mr Beast’s tweet the hardest, with Corpse winning by a tiny margin and securing $10,000 for charity.

Corpse Husband’s sudden rise to popularity has been unprecedented.

But one fan decided to take her support to an entirely new level, after Corpse revealed a single strand of his hair on Instagram.

As he doesn’t ever show his face, fans have naturally become curious as to who the person attached to the incredible voice is, and Corpse has played along with people’s curiosity by doing miniscule reveals of different parts of himself.

First it was #onlyhands, and this time around in celebration of him hitting 1 million followers on Instagram, he revealed a single strand of his hair in a reveal he called #onlystrands. The bizarrely atmospheric black and white image now has over 560,000 likes and counting.

Dedicated fan CorpseBaddie on Twitter decided she wanted to immortalize the image, and did that in the most permanent way possible by actually tattooing the hair strand on her ribs.

The October 25 tweet revealing the tattoo blew up at a rapid rate, and at the time of writing it has garnered over 30,000 likes.

Speaking about the sudden interest in her brand new tattoo, CorpseBaddie sent a message to her favorite creator. “So Corpse Husband this blew up. I have one question, can I play a game of Among Us with y’all?”

Though he has yet to respond, an Among Us collab between the pair would certainly be entertaining for those that have followed her tattoo journey.

The tattoo is just a testament to how unprecedented Corpse Husband’s rise to popularity has been, and this is certainly only the beginning of his fans’ loyalty.
