Parler, the social media platform which has become a haven for far-right activists, crashed following President Donald Trump’s permanent suspension from Twitter on Friday evening.
When Mediaite attempted to load the social media platform, on Friday evening, an error appeared stating: “We apologize, there was an issue fetching the feed. We have been notified and are working to resolve this.”
Meanwhile, Parler is down. pic.twitter.com/2oq4k9ksho

A Mediaite request for comment to Parler went unreturned regarding the matter.
Yet, this isn’t Parler’s only problem, the social media company faces a 24-hour deadline set by Apple to take action against content on their platform.
The platform has struggled to gain a firm hold on how to moderate content featured on their platform.
UPDATE (01/08/2021) 8:04 PM EST: Parler appears to be back online and operational.
