RULES OF THE ROAST: (click for details)


  • You must provide at least one high-quality picture of the roastee holding a handwritten sign with the text /r/RoastMe - Phones and Snapchat text overlay is NOT allowed! Your hand and at least an implication of a complete arm must be visible.

  • Posts may contain multiple images, either natively through Reddit's multi-image feature or hosted on Imgur. All images in an album post must only contain the roastee(s), and the first image must have a sign (e.g. old pictures of you the roastee as a young child are allowed so long as a current picture of them with a sign is present).

  • All individuals in the picture must be holding the r/RoastMe sign or indicate they are aware of the sign in some way (e.g. by pointing to it). Photos with non-Roastees in the background will be removed if their faces are visible.

  • Photoshopped/edited posts are NOT allowed. This includes Snapchat filters such as the digitally-added flowers or dog ears. Posting multiple edited photos will result in a ban.

  • Your post will not appear until after it has been approved by a moderator. Please send [this message](https://www.reddit.com/message/compose?to=/r/roastme&subject=Post Not Approved&message=Hello, I don't believe my post has been approved yet. Could you please approve my post? Add link to post here: (Make sure you link to the reddit post, not the imgur!)) if it takes longer than 1 hour.

  • The minimum posting age is 18 years old, your post will be rejected if you look younger or if context clues lead us to conclude you are younger.

  • By submitting a Roast, you agree to your picture being saved, hosted on Imgur, and reposted to Reddit for the purpose of inclusion on "Best Of" and "Highlights" albums.

  • Your face must be at least 60% visible in the photo.

  • You may post on behalf of other people, provided that the post follows all of the other rules listed above, and it is clear that the person being posted consents to the roast.

  • No joke roasts. Anyone posting a dog, or a ham, or Anne Frank, or Donald Trump, or anything like that will be banned for 3 days. It's not funny.

  • No sexualized content. There are plenty of humiliation fetish subreddits for you, and we aren't one of them.

  • No ads. No onlyfans


  • This is a comedy subreddit, not a hate subreddit. Act as though you are trying to make an audience laugh. Please familiarize yourself with all rules before participating.

  • This is also not /r/ToastMe. You are here to roast, not flatter.

  • You are allowed to look through the roastee's post history. Do not roast a roastee anywhere outside of this subreddit. Any such outside harassment is not sanctioned by /r/RoastMe, and will result in a ban upon discovery.

  • Never post another user's personal information, referred to as 'doxxing'. We will always report violations to the admins.

  • Never use suicide, homicide, assault, racism, or pedophilia as the crux of a roast. These subjects are never funny.

  • Please don't use link shorteners in comments (bit.ly, tinyurl, etc.)
