Roasting someone means that you know how to be tactfully mean (snarky) without being mean-spirited in poking fun at someone, teasing, ruthlessly ridiculing, trash talking, and even mocking them.
Roasting people that you know is usually a bad idea because people will believe that there is truth in every joke and might laugh in the moment but remember nothing but bitterness, which is why roasting should be reserved for when a person truly deserves it.

The act of verbally assaulting someone until you hurt their feelings, sometimes to the point of making them cry. In most cases it is associated to fags who think everyone likes them.
Chris acted so tight, even though nobody liked him, so i started roasting him in front of everybody.

Chris: Hey everybody check out my new threads.
John: Nobody cares fag.
Chris: My jeans cost more than you're whole outfit.
John: It looks like you got them things as a hand-me-down.
Chris: What makes you think that?
John: There's a huge ketchup stain in the front, and your jeans are so tight they look like they chopping off your ankles.
Chris: *Embarrassed* *Runs to the bathroom and cries*
