    #Roastme: New form of cyberbullying parents should know about - NJ.com

    It's called "Roasting” — a new form of cyberbullying that experts are warning parents about as it becomes particularly popular among children and teens.

    Often under the hashtag #roastme, the trend involves people uploading videos of themselves on social media and asking to be roasted.

    On platforms like Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Reddit, friends and strangers then go back and forth posting barbs about the person in the video, often including hurtful and humiliating attacks.
