- Pete Davidson made a disturbing post on Instagram saying “i really don’t want to be on this earth anymore,” before deleting his account.
- Davidson was reportedly accounted for after making the post, seen on the set of “Saturday Night Live.”
- Earlier in the morning, Davidson weighed in on a Twitter debate around mental health between his ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande and Kanye West.
“Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson deleted his verified Instagram account on Saturday, minutes after making a disturbing post where he wrote, “i really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. i’m doing my best to stay here for you but i actually don’t know how much longer i can last. all i’ve ever tried to do was help people. just remember i told you so.”
Actor and Journalist Jon Cryer wrote that he’d confirmed that Davidson was safe at the set of “SNL” after making the post, writing on Twitter: “Am hearing Pete Davidson is at SNL and accounted for.”
It’s not clear who Davidson is referencing in the post, but earlier on Saturday, Davidson weighed in on a social media debate between his ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, and rapper Kanye West.
“Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health. I can’t explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this. We need people like Kanye. No one should ever point fingers at you for your bravery in speaking about mental health. I’m seriously disgusted,” Davidson wrote in a post on Instagram.
On Saturday morning, West called out Grande for allegedly using his mental health “to promote a song.” On Friday, Grande seemingly referenced West and his feud with Drake when she wrote “i know there are grown men arguing online rn but miley and i dropping our beautiful, new songs tonight so if y’all could please jus behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that would be so sick thank u.”
