On Thursday, the Netflix’s “Love Is Blind” reunion special was set to be a live showing. However, this caused havoc on the streaming platform as many users had difficulty trying to get onto the app and website. Some viewers found that screens were still loading while others were met with an error message. The popular ESPN personality, Stephen A. Smith, joined fans who were surprised by the reaction.
Smith went back to his Twitter and used an old tweet he posted in 2015 to poke fun at the show. In the tweet, he joked that “Netflix servers right now,” and used an old meme to create hilarity from the show’s technical failure. Netflix was not spared the heat, as many viewers expressed a lack of patience regarding the show’s delayed airing.
The online roasting saw Blockbuster and Redbox coming for Netflix, with social media users sharing their own takes on the matter. While Netflix tried to make light of the situation and tweeted, “Love is … late,” the streaming site faced mass criticism from viewers forced to wait until the changes were made.
Certainly, the incident was nothing serious or problematic, nonetheless, it’s encouraging that even pundits and masses found humor in the situation. It was just for a brief moment a chance to forget all the other heightened issues that we currently face globally.
