Pete Davidson got emotional in a message he wrote and posted on his Instagram page, writing about the past nine months, including everything from mental health, to online/real life bullies, to even being suicidal.
Over the last year, Pete went through a breakup with ex-girlfriend Cazzie David, jumped into a whirlwind romance with Ariana Grande and then got engaged to the pop star after only a few weeks of dating, eventually enduring another breakup when the engagement was broken off. Pete is also named in Grande's latest song "thank u, next," as well as its music video, and has been under fire for a recent Saturday Night Live sketch.
Davidson's message starts off by saying that he's remained quiet through any scrutiny he's been subjected to recently. He says, "I've kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything. I'm trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts for frame of reference. Especially in today's climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling."
The SNL star then goes on to talk about bullies and being vocal about Borderline Personality Disorder, hoping that being open about it will "help kids like [himself] who don't want to be on this earth. "I've been getting online bulled and in public by people for 9 months. 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," he continued.
Pete ended the online letter by saying, "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."
