Reddit, the popular message board discussion site, isn't working for thousands of users.

Redditors have been reporting issues via website outage monitor and social media, and Reddit's website currently displays an error message.

Some users are receiving an error message that says "Our CDN was unable to reach our servers," but for others the site fails to load and displays a 503 gateway error. About 80 people began reporting issues with Reddit to Downdetector as early as 3:54 a.m. ET, but that number spiked to more than 3,000 reports by 9 a.m. ET.

Reddit's status page showed a spike in the error rate around 9 a.m. as well, but all of the site's status markers listed the site's resources as fully operational.

Reddit did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.
