Dublin: 15 °C Friday 20 May, 2022

Hundreds of people are posting selfies online and asking commenters to 'roast' them

The internet has peaked.

USED TO BE that people were afraid of becoming the internet’s next slagging target. Now, they’re actually asking for a roasting.

r/RoastMe is a new subreddit that’s going massively viral this week – the premise is simple: Just put up a picture of yourself, and invite people to insult you.

But before you encourage people to insult your boss, or your sister-in-law, or whoever it is you’d love to roast – the whole point is that people submit themselves for a slagging.

Roastees must prove, usually by holding up a handwritten sign, that they’re up for it.

Most of the insults are good-natured, if EXTREMELY cutting – though, as this is the internet, it can get a little rough and raw sometimes.

Here are some of sickest burns so far.
