Reddit starts crashing as subreddit blackout keeps growing

Reddit is experiencing some issues for many on Monday, with the outage happening the same day as thousands of subreddits going dark to protest the site’s new API pricing terms. For many Verge staffers, Reddit.com isn’t loading, but individual subreddits will. There are around 38,000 user reports of issues on Downdetector.

Reddit’s status page is now reporting a “major outage” affecting Reddit’s desktop and mobile sites and its native mobile apps. “We’re aware of problems loading content and are working to resolve the issues as quickly as possible,” the company wrote on the status page.
