‘Fix your s***, man’: Snoop Dogg calls out Bill Gates over Xbox outage

An Xbox Live outage has left thousands of gamers frustrated - but one angry user decided to take his complaint straight to the top. Rapper Snoop Dogg posted an Instagram video calling out Microsoft founder Bill Gates, demanding that he “fix your s***, man”. The outage happened at around 7pm UK time, affecting in-game matchmaking, cloud storage, and leaderboards. Microsoft technicians posted a message saying they were “working hard” to fix the problem, but that was not enough for the music star.

What the f*** is you doing, Bill Gates?! Fix your s***, man.

He threatened to switch to PlayStation if the problem was not solved quickly. In a clip posted to his account, which has eight million followers, he said: “A message to Xbox One or Microsoft or whoever the f***. "Y'all f****** server is f****** wack, man. Y'all going to make me switch to PlayStation if y'all don’t ever get this s*** fixed. Is it that difficult to play someone online? But he may have called out the wrong guy - despite founding the company, Bill Gates is now listed as a mere "technical adviser” at the tech giant. And switching to PlayStation might not solve his problems either - Sony’s network suffered similar difficulties last week. The issues with Microsoft’s servers now appear to have been resolved.
