Meet Nate from The Devil Wears Prada. Dude played Andrea's boyfriend and not a very supportive one. While the narrative of the show portrayed Andy's boss, played by Meryl Streep, as the villain, it was actually Andy who was the devil in disguise.
First things first, Andy herself wasn't a righteous individual, our girl went to a fashion publication and judged the hell out of everyone working there as superficial. Woman, we are calling it out.
But okay, our judgy Betty deserves a healthy relationship. No doubt there. But poor Andy got into bed with the actual devil, who got to dump her and make her feel bad about her new and improved self. Satan knows its tricks all too well.
Reminder: Miranda Priestly isn’t the villain in The Devil Wears Prada. Nate, the one who discourages Andy from her success when she’s doing well at her job, is. 💁🏻♀️ #TheDevilWearsPrada— Jessica Michelle (@jmtomichek) July 9, 2019
Nate had the guts to insinuate 'did they even look at you before hiring you' when Andy landed a job at a notable fashion magazine-
You got a job at a fashion magazine? What was it, a phone interview?
And then when our girl renovates her wardrobe, Nate pulls her down by saying, 'I liked the old clothes better'.
And the moment when their relationship hits a serious bump, is when Andy misses out Nate's birthday party because she had to work late. Girrrl, if your man can't understand that you have to prioritise work sometimes, then you're better off without him anyway.
Dude gives her crap by sitting in a dark room, waiting for her to come back home. And if that was not enough, he breaks up with her, when she gets a fricking awesome job opportunity in Paris-
I wouldn't care if you were out there pole dancing all night so long as you did it with a little integrity. You used to say this was just a job, you used to make fun of the Runway girls. Now you've become one of them.
You didn't have to pull down an entire industry to break up with your girlfriend, Nate. See this is why you are in hell, devil.
According to your arbitrary moral standards, you dragged down your girlfriend, runway girls (who BTW don't care what you think about them) and even shamed pole dancers by your insinuation. Congrats.
Not just Nate, Andy was basically surrounded by a bunch of unsupportive individuals who had zero regard for her job.
During this dinner scene with her friends, Andy's boss calls her. Jokingly they start playing fetch with her phone. Truly, friends like these fill in for enemies in your life too.
I know I hit the jackpot with my parents because every time Nate comes on the screen in the devil wears Prada my dad yells “dump him” at the tv like he’s watching the bears play green bay— Betty Ann (@BabyTrollFace) July 8, 2019

Maybe the *real* villain of The Devil Wears Prada is the friends we made along the way.— Santiago Melli-Huber (@Santiblogo) July 2, 2019
Or it's Nate and the judgmental friends.
The Devil Wears Prada came out 13 years ago today, so I just wanna take the time to remind everyone that Andy's boyfriend, Nate, was the fucking worst and her friends were all a close second.— Lelanie | #SaveSwampThing (@lelaniecypher) June 30, 2019

just a reminder that the real villain in The Devil Wears Prada was Nate. that is all— 𝒓𝒐𝒄𝒌𝒚 (@Yazzy2102) June 22, 2019
Watching The Devil Wears Prada for the first time. If Nate reminds you of your boyfriend/S.O, dump them immediately. Jesus Fucking Christ.— Matt Will Post (@MattPostSaysHi) April 28, 2019
Relationships are obviously important. The mature thing to do was to have a healthy conversation with Andy, instead of constantly shaming her and her job. This was not well-handled. To all the Nates out there, learn and grow.
