American comedian, Pete Davidson, raised concerns about his safety after he deleted his Instagram account following an unsettling post that he didn’t “want to be on this earth anymore.” The Saturday Night Live host’s post came after ex-fiancée Ariana Grande weighed in on Kanye West‘s recent tweets about Drake.
In a since-deleted tweet on Thursday night, Grande wrote, “Guys, I know there are grown men arguing online [right now], but Miley [Cyrus] and I [are] dropping our beautiful, new songs tonight, so if y’all could please just behave for like a few hours so the girls can shine that’d be so sick thank u.”
Kanye who wasn’t amused by Grande’s message the replied her on Twitter writing: “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 added, “People will no longer take mental health for a joke.”
Kanye’s reply got Grande to retract her message as she tweeted “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.”
Following Grande and West’s tweet exchange, Davidson who also suffers from has mental health took to Instagram to write “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 continued, “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.” He then went on to delete his Instagram account after writing, “I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore.”
Pitchfork, however, reports that Davidson has been accounted for, and his safety has been confirmed by the New York Police Department.
