If you want to see what ASOS has to offer, a search for the images on the ASOS website, via Google Images, is about as close as you will get, as of this writing. The ASOS website has been down for hours and shoppers are blaming the #BrexitVote as the reason ASOS isn’t letting anyone shop for juicy deals and save money. Reports of ASOS briefly coming back up then going down again on Friday have filled social media.

As of this writing, one U.S. dollar equals 0.73 British pound, a conversion rate that seems an inverse rate. In the past, one U.S. dollar has equaled about one-and-a-half British pounds. Shoppers are responding to ASOS aplenty on the ASOS Facebook page, on the ASOS Instagram page, as well as on the ASOS Twitter page to let the company know their disappointment.

“Erm, ‘scuse us, we need a little time out. The site isn’t currently available but we’re doing everything we can to get it back up soon!”

Shoppers aren’t buying the excuse that ASOS is simply down due to technical difficulties or some other type of routine maintenance. Online, ASOS is being accused, via social media, of taking the time to adjust their prices online in the wake of the big shakeup in the market.
