17+ Sizzling Burns That Hit Just Right

Paddy Clarke 17 Feb 2020

There are few feelings quite like the sense of elation you get when you deliver a truly spectacular burn to someone. And, due to the fact that the internet allows people to pause and think about their responses more readily than in person, the internet is a veritable festival of savagery as people vie to have their voices heard online.

From people roasting antivaxxers and presidential candidates to police departments delivering savage burns, it is my great pleasure to present to you 17+ sizzling burns that hit just right!

1. Antivaxxer Logic < Actual Logic

I mean, it's not hard to roast anti-vaxxers or flat earthers due to the staggering nature of their density, but it is still great to see them getting their comeuppance.

14. Mailing Out The Pain

It's not just Wendy's that use their official Twitter page to deal out the savage responses, the Royal Mail also gets in on the action from time to time. It's amazing they were so quick with this reply burn though, as normally they're late.
