Most users are reporting issues with Discord, receiving a 502 bad gateway error message, but the issues might actually not be Discord related.

Over on Cloudflares own server status page – https://www.cloudflarestatus.com – there’s a warning for a Network Performance issue, with the following message:
“Investigating – Cloudflare is observing network performance issues. Customers may be experiencing 502 errors while accessing sites on Cloudflare.”
