Microsoft's Xbox Live service went down for several hours tonight, restricting the ability for Xbox One and Xbox 360 gamers across the world to play online and join parties with their friends. The company confirmed the outage a short time after the first reports surfaced online, tweeting from an official support account that engineers were "looking into some troubles with Xbox Live." Microsoft didn't say what caused the service to buckle, but it remains down four hours later.

Annoyed Xbox owners have been vocal in their response to the unexpected downtime — none more so than Snoop Dogg. The rapper, movie star, and avid gamer posted a profane 15-second rant to Instagram soon after news of the Xbox Live outage broke, in which he implores Microsoft to fix its service before he was forced to switch to PlayStation. "What the fuck is you doing, Bill Gates?" Snoop asks. "Fix your shit, man!"
