Tumblr Site Down, Celebrity & High Profile Blogs Offline: Beyonce, Obama for America

Tumblr is down for the count as it is going through what Tumblr engineers report as network issues. The micro-blogging platform and social networking website has been having issues for approximately two hours which first started with users experiencing slow loads.

According to Tumblr, they have taken the site offline in order to resolve the network issue and will update as soon as they know more.

GNNA state their name is not to be racist or homophobic, but believes that blogging is lowering journalistic standards and is protesting blogs.
