Theresa May shockingly called off a vote on her Brexit deal.

Not long after Downing Street confirmed that the vote would go ahead, the office then came forward to reveal the prime minister would delay it in the face of intense rebellion from backbench MPs.

The news comes as the European Court of Justice ruled that the UK can unilaterally revoke Article 50 and effectively halt Brexit through a "democratic process".

Meanwhile, the delay received got quite the reaction online as politicians and laypeople alike took to social media.

The Brexit coordinator for the European Parliament, Guy Verhofstadt, is among many who have had enough.

"I can’t follow anymore," he tweeted after learning the news. "After two years of negotiations, the Tory government wants to delay the vote."

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon offered to team up with Labour.

And the memes and gifs, too, kept a-coming

Others are just done.

Elsewhere, Andy Serkis draws on Gollum to talk about Theresa May's Brexit plan. And it's brilliant.
