Instagram Crashed and it Caused a Global Food Crisis

By Robert Sorokanich on at

It's a springtime Saturday, with the weather finally warming up for a lot of folks. Sounds like the perfect day for brunch with friends, right? Wrong. Instagram is down, and it's causing a panic among aspiring food photographers. Just look at these poor lost souls.

All of this is to say nothing of the people stranded at Coachella Festival with no way of communicating fake-patina-tinged transmissions to the waiting world. This must be what it felt like when Apollo astronauts lost contact with NASA while they orbited the dark side of the moon.

Godspeed, Instagrammers.
