BlackBerry outage: Everyone tweets outrage including, of course, celebrities

You’re not the only one who wanted to throw your Blackberry out the window today. We understand your frustration; we didn’t get emails, texts or BBMs all day either.

According to Reuters this “three-day disruption” is the worst since the outage two years ago.

“It’s a blow upon a bruise. It comes at a bad time,” Richard Windsor, global technology specialist at Nomura.

It seems like Hollywood was just annoyed with the Blackberry outage. And what to stars and starlets do when they’re annoyed? They tweet, obviously.

Here’s a roundup of celebrities cursing the day the bought a Blackberry.

Piers Morgan @piersmorgan decided to take a day off since his smart phone wasn’t working. “One positive of the #Blackberry crisis – my personal trainer can’t get hold of me. #OrderingBurger.” – Bon appetit, Piers.

Jersey Shore’s Nicole Snooki Pollizi @Sn00ki, advised Blackberry that it’s time “get real here.”

Funny man Joel McHale @joelmchale said, “Can I borrow someone’s bugle? I need to play Taps for Blackberry service.”

Perez Hilton @PerezHilton was so annoyed he vowed to ditch his Blackberry for an iPhone (how dare he?!)

“Ok, I’m going to make the switch. Going to buy an #iPhone. Sorry @BlackBerry! We were good for a few years, but now you’re like my Sidekick!”


Coming as no surprise, Kourtney Kardashian @KourtneyKardashian was just confused. “What’s going on?!” she asked.
