Pete Davidson Speaks Out Against His Online Bullies After Ariana Grande Breakup
Since splitting from Ariana Grande in October, there’s no denying that the past couple of months have been anything but easy for Pete Davidson. From the many tattoo cover-ups to that controversial SNL joke, the comedian has faced his fair share of personal struggles.
Now, it seems like the 25-year-old is finally breaking his silence about the thoughts he’s experienced following his heavily publicized relationship with the “God is a Woman” singer. Davidson took to Instagram on Monday to share a lengthy note speaking out against the vicious online bullies who are “trying to make him kill himself."
“I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything,” he wrote in the post. “I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashed him without any facts or frame of reference. Especially in today’s climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling. I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for nine months.”
He then wrote about his mental health, saying “I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth. I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t. I’m upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is – I see you and I love you."
We appreciate Davidson’s bravery and openness, especially with all the buzz surrounding his ex-fiance’s break-up anthem, “thank u, next”, which features references to the comedian.
Stay strong, Pete!
