On at least 3 occasions (MAJOR SPOILERS):
- Early on in the game, the protagonist and his cousin, Roman, are kidnapped by a member of a Russian mafia family as retaliation for killing one of their members and are both tied up to a chair in a basement. They are both released to work for said family, but only after Roman is shot in the stomach.
- Around halfway through the game, Roman is kidnapped by the main antagonist's gang and the protagonist is sent a message by the main antagonist with a picture of Roman tied up to a chair.
- Near the end of the game, the protagonist kidnaps a girl with the intention to hold her for ransom. She is later seen tied up and gagged before being released in exchange for some diamonds.

Multiple ads, commercials, and websites mention dangerous and unusable products for rapid weight loss. Eating disorders have many mentions in regards to models and other celebrity women, though sadly none are treated as anything other than jokes.

In a club management sequence in The Ballad of Gay Tony, Luis has to deliver food to a starlet at Maisonette 9, it is mentioned multiple times that she is planning on purging it. Anna Rex(Ad) and BulimiaLovers.net(Website) are other instances of ED's that are treated rather insensitively.

Niko says something to Bernie in Serbian that is translated as f*g/got. From the very same mission, the homophobe Niko kills yells it at Bernie. In The Ballad of Gay Tony, the word is frequently thrown at Tony Prince.

Ethnic slurs of multiple types can be heard from other characters, mostly having to do with race or immigration status.

They are said by Playboy X and Dwayne (Black, in a reclaimed manner), Gerry McReary (White-Irish, derogatory), and Yusuf Amir (Arab, ignorantly, in TBOGT is told to stop using them but continues to do so)

the game features several strip clubs and sex workers, who can be hired by the player. while much of it is avoidable, there is a mission that occurs in a strip club, and the game itself opens with a BDSM scene

It is revealed that at least 2 brothers of the McReary family that the player works with were molested by their father. An associate of the family is also mocked by Gerry for allegedly being the result of an incestuous relationship.

There are 2 different endings, both of which are very sad:
(MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD)
(MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD)
- If the player chooses to trust the main antagonist and go through with a lucrative deal, they are betrayed again and Roman, the protagonist's cousin, is killed at his own wedding. During the end credits, Roman's wife, now a widow, reveals that she was pregnant and her child will be born without a father (Niko promises to take care of the child). In a later phone call, the protagonist's girlfriend, disappointed in him sacrificing his morals for money, breaks up with him.
- If the player refuses the deal, they get their revenge and kill the main antagonist. At Roman's wedding, the protagonist's boss, who prepared the deal, appears furious and fires into the crowd attempting to kill the main character, but failing and killing the protagonist's girlfriend. Roman survives and he promises to name his first daughter after her.
The second ending is generally considered better, but is still bittersweet at best.
