How to Respond to Roast

That way, the person understands that even though he is trying to roast you, he is not in any way better than you.

This is a good comeback that you can use at all times. It is also a good way to get back at the person if you know correctly that the person is not personally doing better than you.

Why not spend your time on something better

This shows that the person could have been a better person if he spent his time doing something better. You are in a way advising the person to spend his time doing better things, that way he will become a better person.

This is a good clap back because you did not necessarily need to roast the person back, you only had to advise the person to spend his time on something better.

You sound too harsh

Roasting is so harsh, especially if the person was really mean to you and wanted to make you feel bad about yourself. This is a straightforward reply that you can give.

Let the person know how harsh it was to roast you. You may not necessarily need to roast back, but this reply will let the person know that it was too harsh of him to roast you.

Can’t you be nice for once

This shows that the person is not naturally a nice person and he is fond of roasting people. If you have never seen him being nice to someone and then he roasts you, ask him if he can’t be nice for once.

That way, it will draw his attention to the fact that he is not being nice to people and he will most likely consider being a nicer person and reduce roasting. This reply will go a long way to help the person more than it will help you.

Roast all you want

This reply shows that you do not care what the person says at all. You simply tell him that he should roast all he wants.

Even if the person roasts you, you do not even care and you keep going. If you are the type of person that harsh words do not get to you, you can use this reply.

It shows how confident you are and how less you care about what people say, especially when it is not the truth about you.

Try to talk less and listen more

This reply shows you also care about the person and you want the person to be a better person by listening more and talking less. If the person talks less, he is less likely to roast often.

This reply even helps the person to be a better person. You are advising him to roast less and listen more. This is a good reply.

Stop being toxic

Sometimes, roasting can be so toxic especially if the person does it with hatred and jealousy. You directly tell the person in your reply to stop being toxic.

Note that this reply should only be used only if you notice toxicity while the person is roasting.

In this reply, you do not like that the person says things you do not like. You directly tell him reply if he does not have anything good to say to you.

That way, the person will choose to not roast you next time.

Where did you learn to roast? You were not like this before

This shows that the person must have changed, you knew him as someone that does not roast people, and all of a sudden, the person started to roast.

In this reply, ask where the person learned how to roast because you never expected the person will roast that way.

You never saw him be someone who would roast people that much. It is a good thing you asked.

Come take some roasting lessons from me

This shows that you roast better than the person and you are advising the person to come to take roasting lessons from you because you feel the person is not as good as you when it comes to roasting.

That way, the person will understand that you are better at roasting than he is, and he will decide to not roast you anymore because he understands that you will always beat him hands down.
