The Kim Kardashian app has crashed and everyone’s freaking out

Clearly, we all decided to stay in and play Kim Kardashian: Hollywood tonight. Or at least, that was the plan.

Well, well, well. It’s Friday night. What are you doing? Getting tapas with coworkers? Going on a first date? Reluctantly seeing a friend’s improv group? 

Or did you decide to lie, skip everything you were invited to and stay home to play Kim Kardashian: Hollywood?

You and me both, sister, but unfortunately the app that has captured our hearts and minds has crashed, leaving (virtual) celebrity hopefuls staring at their push notifications in anguish. 

#Fixthekardashiangame is trending on Twitter, where hoards of users are tweeting their pain. 

There have been calls for more K stars as compensation for the outage…

… as well as some valid theories as to why the app is inaccessible. 

The real tragedy here is that your plans to play a little TGIF drunk Kim Kardashian: Hollywood have been thwarted. There’s always next week. Or tomorrow.

Kim, care to weigh in on this?

As you should!
