For those of you who don't know, there's a forum (or subreddit) on Reddit (such a magical place) called r/roastme, where you can post a picture of yourself and have yourself roasted by the masses.

For some it's just a funny and chill way to spend the time. For others, the experience can be a lot more negative.

It was Redditor Bjorn_Battleston who asked, "People who have posted to r/roastme and couldn't handle it, what was the comment that broke you?" and now we know that r/roastme is a place you should only enter if you dare.

"Somebody said..."


Somebody said "how does your boyfriend feel about waking up to Elmer Fudd?" and it was like haha okay I got a big forehead. But later I started dating a new guy and when fooling around he laughed and said "hey you kind of look like Elmer Fudd. You hunting rabbits?" He had absolutely no way of seeing or knowing of that comment. I broke down crying because two people is too much to be a coincidence.


"My wife..."

"Does your wife let you leave the house looking like that?"

"My wife died three years ago."

"Well, from the looks of your sorry self, she's in a better place."


"It was something like..."

It was something like "You look like Jason Momoa and Thor had a baby with Down Syndrome." I guess my special power is looking special.


"The funny comments..."

A lot of roast me's, especially ones that don't get very popular, have commenters that rather than being scathingly funny or cleverly insulting choose to go for harshly cruel or weirdly, irrelevantly specific.

The funny comments I got in my now deleted roast me were about my receding hairline, my big nose, the look on my face, my tattoos, etc. The ones that annoyed me were the ones based on assumptions about my personality or who I am.

In retrospect, I totally asked for it, but a lot of people on that subreddit use it as an outlet for their anger, or an excuse to sh!t on someone rather than coming up with a real, funny-because-it's-true roast.

Ironically, one of the biggest victims of this are attractive women.


"While it's..."

"If we could harness all the oil off your forehead, we could make America energy independent by next year!"

While it's actually pretty funny now, I was only 15 and was already incredibly insecure (you know, how most high school girls are at that point). I think I ended up deleting it around 3 hours after posting and then immediately looked for r/toastme in attempt to regain even an ounce of self-esteem. Good times



R/roastme is how I found out my eyes aren't level. Never noticed till some guy hit me with it. Now I see it every time.


"In an alt account..."

In an alt-account, I posted a pic of mine on r/roastme and clarified that I was a gay male in the title. I was just curious to see what would come of it.

The post itself didn't really get noticed much and didn't get a lot of comments. Most were just lame like I particularly remember something to the effect of "HAHA YOU LIKE BLACK DILDO" and have a daddy fetish.


"I have a thick skin..."

I have a thick skin, but someone said I look like Andre' $3000 in debt. It was both the funniest and meanest thing I've heard about myself.


"Lonely people..."

"Lonely people take long and hot showers to get the warmth of those who they need."

They really called me out.


"You know that feeling..."

"You know that feeling when you break the wrist on your dominant arm and you have to wipe with your weak hand? Yeah, you look like the human version of that."

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
