The father could be classified as mentally abusive. He tells his daughter that if she eats too much ice cream she will get fat and not win the beauty pageant. Later in the movie she is seen being insecure about her body and her ability to do well in the paegent because of her appearance.

there is a children's beauty pageant and the whole scene is overall very creepy, but it's intentional. there are men in the audience who imply they are only there to see the little girls in their pageant getup and one character threatens to fight him later. at the end of this scene, a child does what is essentially a strip routine but honestly it ends up being the least sexual/sexualized part of the scene.

A character has recently attempted suicide right before the start of the movie. He did so by slitting his wrists. We never see the wounds, but his wrists are conspicuously bandaged for much or all of the film.

Having to pick between a low calorie meal and ice cream to stay skinny, because “skinny girls are winners,” is a scene in the movie. Later a character asks a “skinny girl winner” if she eats ice cream, she enthusiastically says yes.

Depends on what you define as hate speech. Anti-gay slurs are used a couple times by one character, but never out of hate, more so ignorance and crudeness.
