Were you one of the 200,000 people who was unable to log onto KylieCosmetics.com to purchase one of Kylie Jenner's restocked lip kits last night? If so, Kylie has a message for you, which is this: Don't be mad at me!
Last night, she live-snapped the restocking process, beginning from the big drop and ending when she subsequently "broke Google" (ed. note: this is impossible) and every lip kit sold out 16 minutes later. Below, the entire saga.
It's ten minutes before the restock. Places, everyone!
A few minutes later, and uh-oh! 200,000 people are currently on KylieCosmetics.com, and there's technical difficulties. "We're gonna be back really soon!" COME ON, KYLIE.
Apparently half of those people decided to do something else, however, because at T-minus one minute, there's only 100,000 people waiting:
"The site's going in and out." KYLIE?!?!??!
Some people are getting through! Stop laughing, this is a serious problem!!!!!
It looks like some people are mad at Kylie. Guys, please don't be mad at Kylie.
It's official: Kylie broke Google.
Whose fault is it? Not Kylie's!!
She told you to stop laughing!!!
Okay, she definitely, literally broke Google. There's an email and everything!
Don't be mad! Or sad!
Everything's sold out. Sorry! Don't be mad!
At least the puppies aren't mad at Kylie!
Guys wait! The True Brown lip kit is still available! Just kidding!
Did you forget Kylie literally broke Google?!
Seriously though, please don't be mad!
Just come back next week! JUST PLEASE DON'T BE MADDDDDD!
