(AP) – Amazon’s website has run into some snags on its much-hyped Prime Day.

Shoppers clicking on many Prime Day links Monday got only an abashed-looking dog with the words, “Uh-oh. Something went wrong on our end.”

It wasn’t clear how widespread the outage was, and an Amazon spokesman didn’t immediately respond to an email.

Shoppers took to social media to complain that they couldn’t order any items. It’s a particular embarrassment for Amazon, on the shopping holiday it created that has become one of its busiest days.
