Pete Davidson has deleted all of his social media accounts after sharing a dark and disturbing message that has left followers very concerned.
“i really don’t want to be on this earth anymore,” the 25-year-old Saturday Night Live star posted, adding in cryptic fashion:
“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.”
Davidson has a history of mental illness and addiction.
He has often been open about both, during appearances on SNL and in his life overall.
After sharing this frightening note, Davidson deleted his Instagram account.
Sources have indicated that he is currently safe and sound at 30 Rockfeller Center, preparing for SNL this evening.
Not long before posting what comes comes close to a suicide note, Davidson wrote online in support of Kanye West and, seemingly, against ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande.
West and Grande are in a bit of a feud at the moment because the former went off on rival Drake Thursday night.
Grande then tweaked him for stealing the thunder of her latest single release, writing:
"Guys, 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’d be so sick thank u."
Most folks found this to be funny.
I know Ariana said this to be cool and didn’t mean no harm but I don’t like even slightest level of slight commentary from someone I know loves and respects me,” he Tweeted, continuing:
"All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health.
"so @ArianaGrande you know I got love for you but until you’re ready to really make sure everyone’s ok don’t use me or this moment to promote a song."
Kanye was accusing the pop star of trying to ride his coattails to promote her music, while also mocking someone who has been hospitalized for a mental breakdown.
In response, Grande stood up for herself and her career, but also apologized.
"With all due respect, i don’t need to use anyone to promote anything. period. i was making a comment ab what men were doing at the time vs. women.
"it was a joke which i understand now was probably insensitive. i apologize if i was in any way triggering and hope u feel well today."
The case and feud appeared to be closed, but then Davidson actually jumped in and sided with Kanye.
He appeared to label Grande’s response to West’s Twitter rant "disgusting," sharing this message/image on his official account before erasing it.
“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."
Davidson has gone through an awful lot of late.
He and Grande got engaged this summer after just weeks of dating… and then they broke up in a public and ugly manner.
Pete then came under extreme for for an inappropriate joke during Weekend Update.
He has seen his reputation take a pretty huge hit in less than a year, and, as mentioned above, this is someone who had already been battling mental illness and addiction for years.
Not long after Davidson appeared to threaten that he might kill himself, Ariana Tweeted the following:
Man I’m so sorry I told a dumb joke.
I really didn’t mean any harm. All I want everyone to be healthy and happy. So desperately. Please. My god…I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything.
I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but I’m here too.
She has since deleted it.
But please join us in wishing Pete Davidson the best.
