However, internet users reacted hilariously to this, with some even blaming Thanos for the occurrence. Some Marvel fans even compared this to Thanos’ snap which wiped out half the universe.
Youtube is obviously down because thanos snapped and erased half of the video sharing platforms on Earth.

What if Thanos deleted half of all videos and YouTube are just too embarrassed to show us so they just put the whole site on private.

Just finished watching Ant Man and The Wasp. After the mid credit scene tried going to YouTube to show my wife the Captain Marvel trailer……. and YouTube is down. Maybe the Thanos snap really did happen ?
