Thank you, first off, for being interested in our very hot, cool, manly show. The team behind the Late Great Andrew Tate, has put together this extended list of content warnings for the show, so that you know exactly what you’re getting into…
PARENTS: this is a show we would love teens to witness. It tackles important cultures and puts some perspective on the long term effects of online influencers like Tate, and how he is a harmful influence to them, their friends, and the women and queer people in their life. Below is a comprehensive breakdown of all the possibly dangerous content that is raised in the show, with line examples. We encourage you to read these before booking.
WARNING; Spoilers lie ahead! Please prioritise your emotional safety over fear of the show being spoiled, I promise there will be many silly surprises in store.
With no further chit-chat, let’s dive into the man-o-sphere…
Andrew Tates content online is inherently misogynistic. We quote Tate many times in the work in jest, and also with heavy hearts at times in dramatic moments. The content portrays women as worthless, reduced to physical attractiveness, and puts them down for being powerful and successful. This philosophy is used ironically as the basis for the main character’s world view, and is shifted throughout the show.
This includes consistent reference to women as slurs and other derogatory terms, such as ‘hoes,’ ‘bitches’ or ‘sluts’
Below is a list of quotes from the show in reference to women;
- ‘I can see so much potential in you ladies. Easily one, or you know, both of you modest babes could be one of my wives. My hoes, if you will.’
- ‘When a man speaks you will listen’
- ‘I know that women want a strong hand, a leader. Well here I am!’
- ‘I can see that you’re very emotional right now’
- “You can’t be responsible for a dog if it doesn’t obey you, or a woman that doesn’t obey you.” (Tate quote)
- “18 to 19-year-old women are more attractive than 25-year-olds because they’ve been through less dick.” (Tate quote)
The show features a plot line wherein a trans-man runs away from his transphobic mother. She consistently misgenders him, refers to him as her ‘daughter’ and directly denies his identity.
The role of the trans-man (Daylof) is played by a gender-queer actor, who uses both ‘she’ and ‘they’ pronouns. When casting this role, we prioritised having the role played by someone with experience of gender-queerness over using a cis-man.
The show contains many curse-words and slurs, both commonly known and some made up by Tate himself. The words include;
Derogatory Use Of Queer Language (Derogatory Use Of ‘Gay’ Specifically)
We use a few times in the work casual, derogatory use of language referring to queer people.
Slurs Referring To Women (Whore/Slut/Bitch)
These slurs are used both to attack women and other characters, they Andrew Tates consistent casual disrespect toward women in everyday speech.
- Vaxihoe – a word Tate uses to insult people who have been vaccinated.
The show refers to the concept of sex, often referred to as ‘fucking’ a few times casually;
e.g. ‘I hope you all fuck, fight, and feast down there, fuelled by the male privilege that sustains you’
We also mention masturbation multiple times, and use words surrounding this such as ‘wank,’ ‘cum/came,’ and ‘ejaculate’
We reference and humorously portray genitals through the show. There is a stylistic, non-graphic, vagina puppet. We use words to refer to genitals such as ‘cock,’ ‘pussy,’ ‘balls,’ and ‘vagina’
There are also many small and indirect innuendos to sex throughout the show
Misandry is the concept of believing women are actively better than, worth more than, and are more valid than men. The characters representing second wave feminist TERFs (trans-exclusionary radical feminists) all refer to men as being worth very little, and objectify and are disgusted by the presence of men.
All of Andrew Tate’s content reflects toxic masculinity, attributing men’s worth to wealth, physique, sex and power, additionally shaming men for expressing emotion, and teaching men to be sexist to women in order to appear more masculine. The show is actively working to dismantle and examine this issue, and in doing so it is pretty constantly portrayed in the characters, as well as spoken about, and critiqued.
One Allusion To Suicide
A very brief, indirect reference to the main character not being sure what his life is worth, and saying that he might be better off dead;
Character 1: You would have died.
Character 2: So what?
Character 1: So what?!
Character 2: Yeah! So what? Maybe I…
That is the whole reference, the character trails off and moves on to a new point.
There is one briefly mimed reference/demonstrative action of a woman beating a man with a belt, while verbally another actor says;
‘He rises to c-list with one episode on a reality TV show … and is banned after
one episode, when footage surfaced of him severely physically abusing a woman. He plays this off as a sexual shenanigan.’
Mentions Of Sexual Abuse and Misconduct
See the ‘domestic violence’ segment; There is one briefly mimed reference/demonstrative action of a woman beating a man with a belt.
Additionally there are some gross quotes taken from Tate referencing the attractiveness of young women;
‘“18 to 19-year-old women are more attractive than 25-year-olds because they’ve been through less dick.”
Violence/References to Violence
Reference to a fantasy/fake murder of Andrew Tate in which he is ripped limb from limb by a large crowd.
Consistent use of boxing, with fake impact being made on actors. (fake punches being thrown)
One moment of gagging and restraining of one male character.
Multiple instances of people being ‘chloroformed’ and dragged from the room.
Multiple instances of characters being dragged across the floor.
The show itself parodies Tate’s online culture as a sort of religion or ‘cult’ and draws parallels between his quotes and teachings to those found in various forms of Christianity/Catholicism. This is to comment on Tate’s God complex and his established power dynamic between him and his fans.
For example, there are clear references to the Christian tradition of shaking hands and saying:
‘Peace be with you!’ ‘And also with you’ wherein we parody the practice by having the women say ‘live laugh love’ and shake hands and hug each other.
Another example would be instead of Eucharist, the men all reference the process of ejaculating on a cracker (not shown, only referenced as a joke).
