Pete Davidson had a slew of people very concerned over his well-being after posting a disturbing message Saturday morning stating he doesn’t “want to be on this earth anymore,” then deleted his Instagram account.
In the post, Davidson wrote, “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.”
According to the New York Times, NBC confirmed to the NYPD that Davidson is accounted for and is at work at 30 Rockefeller.
The SNL cast member didn’t appear in any live sketches but instead introduced the night’s musical guests.
Prior to deleting his account, fans and followers had commented with messages of support, though a number of commenters urged the star to kill himself. The internet can truly be an evil and disgusting place.
Davidson has been open about his mental health struggles. He has been the subject of headlines in recent months for his short-lived romance with pop singer Ariana Grande and a controversy over a joke he made on a previous episode of SNL about Dan Crenshaw, an injured Navy veteran from Texas who has since been elected to Congress.
In the aftermath of his Instagram post, several celebrities offered their support.
“I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything,” Ariana Grande said in a now-deleted message.
