Emotions are running high over the #MACSelena server crashes…and it isn’t just with MAC. No store website has been able to keep up with the overwhelming demand for the MAC + Selena makeup line. Not only are servers crashing but whole orders are being canceled after they have been placed. It’s a wild time for Selena fans right now.
MAC + Selena went on sale this weekend and the release has been marred with canceled order after canceled order.

What she said!
There have been threats of iconic Selena proportions.

That is one person you do not want to have to handle.
You thought we were playing?
I swear! If my order gets cancelled, I'm gonna raise hell!!!!! #MACSelena

Here’s what the servers and stores looked like when they realized their mistake:

How can you not be ready for this kind of traffic? It is Selena!
It’s mind-blowing that these people can’t give you their money because you weren’t ready.

Now, it’s not like fans weren’t trying to get their hands on MAC + Selena.

Fans gave up their own sleep for these products.
— Flor M Nguyen (@Vetmed) October 3, 2016
And all they got was a canceled order email.
Some people even tried ordering the products at the 3 a.m. launch and were foiled in their sleep.

In. Their. SLEEP!
Latinos everywhere were skipping the free samples, which NEVER happens.
I was so worried it was gonna sell out that I skipped the free samples. I'm Mexican. We dont skip free stuff. Thats a big deal. #MACSelena

And if they weren’t lucky enough to have their orders canceled, stores were just plain sold out.

Literally breaking hearts all across America, atm.

Items were snatched from online shopping bags and carts at neckbreaking speeds.
Had all 3 Selena lipsticks in my bag & it got removed for being sold out ????? #MacSelena

What kind of world are we living in?!
So many Selena fans are feeling like this IRL.

Especially after learning that some people order the whole collection to sell on eBay.
Some people were lucky enough to get La Reina’s makeup line.
