Cyber Monday is an extremely busy shopping holiday.
It’s causing some serious traffic — to the point that Target’s website is down, CNBC reports.
As of now, shoppers who visit Target’s website are greeted with this message:
CNBC notes that Target isn’t the only company that’s struggling; Paypal is also reportedly down.
According to Forrester research, online holiday sales in the US will amass to more than $95 billion this year, which is 11% more than last year.
But even though this is great news for retailers, shoppers aren’t too happy.

Or, as one Twitter user explained it:
I just got a high traffic alert on the Target website. Cyber Monday is breaking the Internet!

Perhaps this means shoppers will actually have to visit stores to kick off their holiday shopping.
