Christian Bale Shoutout Brings Down Website

(TMZ) 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. [Not much of a web server if that brought it down] more on this story
