Dozens of ChatGPT users are stressing about the free-to-use AI, which is currently down as members of the public find themselves struggling to finish assignments.
The chatbot which can answer questions and reply to almost anything asked of it is currently not working, as OpenAI and ChatGPT both find themselves with performance issues.
It comes as workers demand the return of Sam Altman, the CEO who pleaded with the company to return before he was rejected outright. Altman has since signed a contract with Microsoft.

Altman found himself forced out of the role earlier this month, and while staff demand his return, reports confirm both OpenAI and ChatGPT are no longer functioning.
A spike in issues reported on DownDetector see dozens of users struggling to use the chatbot, as one X user complained of being unable to finish their work due to the outage.
One user wrote: "Just paid £20 for ChatGPT 4 and it still can’t do my work. 3k word assignment due in 3 hours."
Other users of the artificial intelligence are now hitting out at board members and employees who voted to oust Altman from the company. One X user wrote: "maybe should have asked chatGPT what consequences of firing sam would be first…"
Altman, who was confirmed as Microsoft's new advanced artificial intelligence team head per The Guardian, was booted from the company just days ago. After three days, ChatGPT has received three separate CEOs.
Currently sitting in the big chair is Twitch founder Emmett Shear, but there are new fears of core members of the OpenAI team leaving the company along with Altman.
Mira Murati, the short-lived CEO who took over from Altman, took to X and wrote: "OpenAI is nothing without its people." Altman was fired for not being "consistently candid in communications".
