6 Hilariously Problematic Moments in Shakespeare's Plays



1. Basically everything in Titus Andronicus

...But especially the part where two guys get baked into a pie and then eaten by their mother. It's like the Great British Bake-Off, only with less whimsy and more cannibalism. This whole play is unbelievably violent and involves body parts getting lopped off and sexual assault. Very NC-17, 10/10 would not recommend watching with your mom.
