Soulja Boy Offers Up His Services in Wake of Facebook and Instagram Outages

Though it's hard to imagine any reasonable person being truly upset about a Facebook outage, regardless of how long said outage lasts, that was presumably the case for at least a few people when the social media platform briefly went down Wednesday.

To alleviate any ensuing existential concerns, Soulja Boy promptly stepped up to offer his services. "This is unacceptable," Soulja said, noting that the Mark Zuckerberg creation presently operates with a lot of money behind it.

Oh wow the entire Facebook is down? That’s it I’m going to make a new social media network right now! This is unacceptable y’all have too much money for this smh 🤦🏾‍♂️

Of course, a slightly more unfortunate byproduct of a Facebook outage is often an accompanying Instagram outage.

Wtf is wrong with Instagram shit not working oh well time to make my own app 🤷🏾‍♂️

From there, Soulja Boy directed fans to wait out the outage by joining him on the official Soulja Boy app. A quick perusal of the service's reviews on the App Store suggests the app isn't exactly a new release, but it's hard to deny Soulja's excellent timing with this push.


Soulja devotees, following that push, promptly joined in.

Last month, Soulja (who's notably made multiple similar plays in recent months) was deemed the "greatest artist of all time" by T-Pain. Speaking with Big Boy, T-Pain added that he'd like to see Soulja back up his 2018/2019 legacy argument with some more new music. "All I want for Soulja Boy is for all [of] what he's doing . . . is to come with some music to back it up," he said.
