    YouTube has reported widespread outages on several of their sites Tuesday evening.

    According to Down Detector, the outage is affecting users coast-to-coast, but the issues reportedly extend to the rest of the world, as well. YouTube has had similar issues in the past, but they aren’t common and rarely last as long as Tuesday’s – more than 50 minutes.

    There is no word on when YouTube service will be restored and the internet is not happy about it:
