Margot Robbie's character goes to a party at the Hearst mansion about halfway through the movie -- [SPOILERS] she purposefully makes a scene at the food table by messily binge eating with her hands, storms out, then rushes back into the party for vengeance by projectile vomiting all over multiple people. VERY graphic!!!

One character eats food with her hands in front of a group of people while calling herself an animal and then returns to v* on them. This is all (supposedly) done intentionally for the purpose of ruining the party. This same character is thin but mentions having been frequently called ‘too fat’ for roles. But the two scenes are far apart in the movie and not directly connected. There is no indication of ed outside of these scenes and she seems confident in her appearance/ not focused on food

A fat man is consensually degraded for erotic reasons near the beginning of the film. Fat characters are portrayed as comic relief/ funny just by existing throughout. A thin woman says she was passed over for roles for being fat, and she later pretends to eat uncontrollably with her hands and then v*, which is portrayed to be disgusting though not directed at any fat characters

Near the beginning, a man engages in kink play with someone later described to look like a child. Whether she is actually a minor is never revealed, but he looks older than her. There are so many crowd scenes that I’m assuming other sexual activity with age gaps occurs in the background.

Slight spoilers ahead: Male character is hit by a car after a failed snake fight that causes everyone to run around. The accident is on-screen, but no injuries are depicted.
