Snoop Dogg wasn't very happy with his Xbox.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT)'s Xbox One had some connection issues on Wednesday night. As CNBC noted, "[the] console has online capabilities called Xbox Live that allow millions of gamers around the world to compete from the comfort of their own homes. However, from time to time, technical issues haunt both Microsoft and rival Sony and brief server outages occur."

The rapper posted to his Instagram account, "Message to xbox1 n ea server fix your shit or playstation here we come" and in the post's video said, "What the f**k are you doing, Bill Gates? Fix your s**t, man. It's that difficult to play somebody online."

The post received nearly 40,000 likes.
