Reddit’s status page currently shows a major outage, and many of The Verge’s staff are unable to load it. Loading the site results in a blank white page.
The site seems to have gone down after GameStop stock shot up 100 percent in late hours of trading. One of Reddit’s most controversial communities, /r/WallStreetBets, has championed the stock and was intensely active after the surge. At the moment, it’s unclear if the two are related, but the subreddit seemed to be getting a lot of heavy traffic right before the site went down.
