It didn’t take long for celebrities – and their social media managers – to get in some jovial jabs against Facebook being down for six hours on Monday. 

Stars like Reese Witherspoon, Snoop Dogg, Adele, and even Dolly Parton all posted light-hearted remarks about the catastrophic worldwide outage – that also included sister site Instagram and messaging service WhatsApp. 

Considering Twitter is a rival to Facebook, the tech drama set the micro-blogging site ablaze with funny quips and memes – including many from celebrities.

Reese Witherspoon’s account also posted a meme of her mouthing ‘thank you’ which it said was Twitter’s response to ‘all other social platforms’ being ‘kaput.’
