Attempting to navigate to my own profile page on any site in the network throws an error.

Here's a .gif for full disclosure:

The horror! Clicking on the profile link in the topbar and getting the "Oops! Something bad happened!" page

Navigating to anyone else's profile page is fine, though.

Did someone break the "Don't deploy on Friday" rule?

    I can reproduce on my account, but going to Spevacus's (meta.stackexchange.com/users/622284/spevacus) works fine, then breaks if I switch to the "Activity" tab.

    Same symptoms here - only seen on Meta SE so far, can visit my profile on other sites without issue. Jun 5 '20 at 16:10

    Happens on other sites as well (SO in my case).

    @JanWichelmann Yep - happening on other network sites now (Have tried SO, TWP and MedSci SE) Jun 5 '20 at 16:14

    The issue here is the Activity tab, not the profile itself. Navigating to your own profile automatically puts you on the Activity tab. Jun 5 '20 at 16:16

    @Vogel612'sShadow Looks like it - if I navigate to another user's Activity tab it breaks Jun 5 '20 at 16:16

    We're investigating. It's widespread across all profile pages.

    @Taryn seems fixed now. I can see my own on MSE and SO again.

    @Taryn I'll call that a fix any day ;-)

    How did you make the GIF btw? Jun 5 '20 at 16:26

We pushed a change out that was behind a feature flag. Unfortunately, we missed a page that needed to check for that setting...the profile page.

We've rolled back the build in the meantime, while we fix the issue.

Thanks for the report.
