Could someone "bring down the internet"?

Would it be possible, technically, for someone to "bring down the internet"? As in the entire internet! There was a slightly silly story in The Strain where one girl slowed the world's internet lol. Is that possible?

Wouldn't be impossible... all the internet is is a series of servers with enough botnets im sure they could manage it

This almost happened in 2013 actually, there was a battle between some spammers and some spam protectors, and they took up so much bandwidth that the "internet" slowed down (in a lot of places).
