Xbox fans confused by the popup began screenshotting the message - and various users have posted about the issue on reddit.

"Mock Error Title

"This would be some long description about the error. Read it and weep! And if you haven't looked up this phrase on the internet, please do! You will find a My Little Pony episode called 'Read it and Weep'. Cloudchasers and Wonderbolts, you'll never be forgotten!"

Fans put the issue to Xbox corporate vice president Mike Ybarra via Twitter, who looked into the matter. This morning, Ybarra stated a fix would be due shortly, and the message had only been intended for internal use:

Ybarra did not state whether he too was a My Little Pony fan.
