Meet Niece Waidhofer.
She's an Instagram-famous model who's been featured on The Chive and Maxim.com. Back in 2017, she requested that Reddit roast her, which had unintended results. The story's making the rounds again and it's a parable about...vanity? Kindness? Throwing oneself to the Internet's loneliest, most perverted lions? Whatever the reason, it's gained traction again. Here's what went down.
Like many brave/stupid people before her, Niece asked Reddit to roast her in the appropriate subreddit. She's stunningly beautiful, so lots of people assumed she was fishing for compliments or marketing herself. Fine.
