The Roasts About This Latina Who Challenged Reddit to Troll Her ‘Big Head’ Are Pretty Dang Brutal
A brave Latina took to Reddit on Wednesday purely with the intent of having her fellow Redditors make fun of her.
The young woman posted her picture on Reddit’s r/RoastMe subreddit, a community dedicated to telling jokes at other people’s expense.
The subreddit insists that the roasting should all be done in good fun, with rules against users’ comments crossing the line into abuse or threatening language. The subreddit says it’s a place for everyone to “laugh at themselves’.
According to the community’s guidelines, the roastee is required to upload a picture of themselves holding a note that says “Roast Me” to provide evidence that they, indeed, consent to the public roasting.
Reddit user u/gabycarrill0 appeared to be game for a little public humiliation, uploading a picture of herself to the subreddit with the heading: “Roast my big head while I wait for my twin in the Target parking lot.”
Reddit user gabycarrill0’s post quickly became popular, amassing 13K up-votes and almost 2,000 comments
In fact, u/gabycarrill0’s roasting thread became so popular, it made the front page of the website–a sign that it was one of the posts on the website that was drawing the most views and engagement.
Reddit users spared no expense poking fun at the brave young woman.
The roasts on the thread largely consisted at jokes aimed at u/gabycarrill0’s love of makeup. Quite a few Redditors wrote jokes implying that she goes overboard in beating her face.
Reddit user richards_86 wrote: “I can just imagine waking up, rolling over and seeing your face on my pillow, even hours after you’ve left.”
Another joke about u/gabycarrill0’s made-up face was from user u/Itroll4love, who quipped, “She’s got more cake on that face than a bakery”.
User u/iquimo said that she “must apply her foundation with a crop duster,” while u/Fetid_Dingo_Kidneys said: “Target’s cosmetics department would like to thank you for keeping them in business during these hard times”.
Some jokes seemed to be completely random, but pretty funny nonetheless.
For example, u/Potato3WaysYou told u/gabycarrill0: “You look like you belong in a Vagisil commercial”, which had over one thousand up-votes.
User RedSnapper45 told her that her face “screams ‘I don’t have any useful life skills'” and user u/-bout-tree-fitty said “I hate seeing people leaving their dogs in the car. It’s so inhumane!”
Surprisingly, the young woman took all of the jokes in stride, even responding to some of them.
In response to the joke that held her responsible for keeping Target’s cosmetics department in business, u/gabycarrill0 cleverly responded: “Taking one for the team!”.
We wish we were as comfortable with ourselves as this brave as this young Latina! We’re happy she felt confident enough to take so many jokes at her expense with a smile on her face the whole time.
