Christian Bale crashes Dicky Eklund's website during Oscars
Christian Bale single-handedly crashed Dicky Eklund’s website Sunday night during the Oscars — after the “Fighter” star gave the famous boxing trainer a shoutout during the awards ceremony.
Dicky’s daughter and publicist Carrie Eklund tells TMZ, Bale’s promo during his acceptance speech for “Best Supporting Actor” drove a ridiculous amount of traffic to Dicky’s website … and the servers just couldn’t handle the load.
Sources on the technical side tell us, the site experienced nearly 20 times its normal daily traffic — jumping from around 500 hits to nearly 10,000.
The site is up and running again — and Carrie tells us, Dicky’s ready to kick his training schedule into high gear.
