Image sharing app Instagram went down for thousands of users across the globe on Thursday evening, with many users complaining that they are not able to open the application and upload and view any posts on the platform.

According to the world outage tracker Down Detector, Instagram was down for thousands of users in various parts of the world on Thursday. Several users reported that the app crashed, and even after restarting the app, it continued to crash. Several users also said they were unable to post images on the platform.

Just as people started experiencing problems while accessing Instagram, they rushed to their second-favorite social media platform Twitter to spam the microblogging site with hundreds of hilarious memes.

With Instagram down, Twitter users resorted to what they do best during a social media crisis – spark a meme fest. Desi Twitter was one step ahead, using screenshots from the cult classic movie Phir Hera Pheri while making hilarious memes on the Instagram outage.

Here are some of the funniest memes on the global Instagram outage –
