The internet can be a cruel place, and most of us try to avoid the nastiness if possible – however in one subreddit group people go to seek it out, and things can get ugly. Instagram influencer Niece Waidhoifer went to the subreddit group r/Roast Me to post a picture of herself holding up a sign that read “r/Roast Me,” in what some thought was an attempt at fishing for compliments.

As someone with 958k Instagram Waidhoifer must already know what kind of mean-spirited harassment flows in the comment sections of the internet – but one user reminded her with a roast some people felt went too far.

Most people in the group simple roast based on appearance since not most of the people are unknown, and there is nothing to judge their personality on. The group description reads: “Hone your roasting skills, meet other roasters, and get yourself roasted! Everybody needs to laugh at themselves! And other people, of course!” Well, a user by the name ‘paross’ decided to roast below the belt – and it’s safe to say Waidhoifer wasn’t laughing.

After the comment, the model deleted her Reddit account – but then posted a response to the situation on her Instagram

“Alright guys, let’s have a talk. First of all, don’t worry, I’m all good, no need to send condolences to my family haha. Yes, I did ask for this.

Yes, I totally freaked out and deleted my Reddit account; my dumb ass used my Instagram username, and judging by the flood of deeply disturbing/visually penisgraphic DMs I was getting, I did not want to lead them here. I see you found me anyway. Hi Reddit! To the people who thought I was just fishing: on r/RoastMe? …wut.

To the “ex” who posted: It doesn’t sound like we’ve ever met; also you spelled my name wrong… #IbeforeEexceptafterC. So in summary, I am a dumbass and I make reddit really, really angry

Thank you to the majority of commenters, who were actually funny, and thank you to all the nice people who had my back against the people who just got excited about a free pass to use the “c” word. Love you guys.”

Many people in the comments were supportive of Waidhoifer and agreed the comment wasn’t funny
