What are Roasts?

A roast is when someone is insulted or subjected to jokes about them, usually in front of a group of people. It’s basically like making someone the butt of everyone’s jokes.

It’s called a roast because whoever is being roasted will feel like they’re being burned after all the insults and zingers that everyone throws at them.

When you roast someone, you can poke fun at their appearance, intelligence, or anything that may be their weakness. Their typical response would be to laugh it off or roast people back for people being roasted.
