Possibly the most brutal subreddit (and there are many subreddits) is /r/roast me. This is where the thick-skinned boys and girls of the internet offer themselves up to be roasted (or “brutally and relentlessly insulted”, as would be more appropriate) by a variety of sick and twisted strangers.
This subreddit is to trolls what methadone is to heroin addicts. It’s a safe place where they can wean themselves off unprovoked attacks and practise their trolling on willing victims. And while some girls simply wouldn’t dare bait this kind of (verbal) battering, these brave women decided that they could take it. Little did they know, the trolls were out in force…
These poor girls have been roasted to within an inch of their lives. But rest assured that they were willing participants. So to see even more roasting, check out our piece on 12 people who asked the internet to roast them but didn’t expect such brutal responses.
