Arthur's father isn't in the picture, though his mother lies to him about who is father is. The same mother is mentally ill and allowed Arthur to be abused as a child. Even if she was there physically, she was a shoddy parent.

We are shown pictures of a child with bruises and a description of how the child was abused however there isn't any physical abuse shown. Psychological abuse is debatable

The filmmakers have confirmed that neither the mother nor her daughter were killed, and I will say that I didn't get that impression when I watched the scene, either. However, the ambiguity is definitely there.

There are complicated relationship dynamics and the audience is left uncertain to reality generally, but there is a plot that there is a possible love tryst which leads to pregnancy and the woman loses her position. Later the alleged father marries, but the original dashed woman doesn't seem to acknowledge it or even care. I certainly wouldn't call the marriage cheating, but losing one's place in society is complicated.

Ableist behavior is a focal point of the film, as characters are shown being mocking of/scared of/angry towards Arthur specifically and solely for his involuntary laughing condition. There is one scene in particular where one character asks him if it’s “actually real”, which may trigger those who are sensitive to this category. I’m astounded anyone could put ‘no’ for this one.

There are no incestuous undertones in this movie. Joker's mother is very sick, and he's taking care of her and watching over her - such as in the scene where they sleep in the same bed. This is also present in the scene where he helps her bathe. It's from a care taking, familial standpoint -- absolutely nothing sexual or romantic.

SPOILER*
There are multiple brutal murders in the movie, often bloody. I wouldn't recommend seeing it if blood and gore is triggering to you.

The gun violence is very realistically and disturbingly portrayed. Very graphic
