Pete Davidson is getting sick of the neverending trolls and mean remarks on his social media page. The star recently took to his Instagram to share a long note on all of the crazy comments people have sent him ever since he and Ariana broke up.
In an Instagram post, Pete wrote, “No matter how hard the internet tries to make me kill myself, I won’t.” As most know, Pete and Ariana broke up in October after a short-lived engagement which many speculated was a ruse to upset her deceased ex-boyfriend, Mac Miller, who died in early September.
Recently, Ariana released a song called, “Thank U, Next,” which parodied and referenced classic movies like 13 Going on 30, Legally Blonde, and Mean Girls. Today, Davidson asked why his fans could send him such hate without having access to literally any of the facts or details on his and Ariana’s personal lives?
The Saturday Night Live star said that people have been sending him threats and other comments for the last nine months, and he’s getting sick of it. The star said he has never said anything about any of them, never mentioned names, and always keeps his mouth shut.
The 25-year-old deleted his Instagram account back in October following his breakup with Ariana, which received intense media scrutiny after the announcement was first revealed.
However, there’s a silver lining to all of this: Ariana’s new song and video, “Thank U, Next,” broke several YouTube videos, probably due to the media and reports surrounding their relationship’s demise.
In fact, Ariana’s new track hit 1 million views on YouTube in less than 34 minutes. Putting aside Ariana’s massive success, Pete has been using comedy and stand-up routines as a way of shrugging off the media hysteria.
When he performed at a benefit gig for the Democrats in Los Angeles, Pete jokingly asked members of the audience if anybody needed a new roommate because he just lost his place with Grande. An anonymous user set-up a GoFundMe page for Pete stating he would be in need of a room.
