Which Controversial Celebrity Did Pete Davidson Defend?
Pete Davidson only made a brief appearance on Saturday Night Live following his alarming Instagram post earlier that day. Davidson posted, “I really don’t want to be on this Earth anymore. 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,” Vulture reports. Davidson has since deleted his Instagram account.
The NYPD were called to assess Davidson’s condition and reported he was “fine.” And while Davidson was found and made the brief appearance on SNL, he continues to battle a serious mental health condition. Earlier that day, he also defended another celebrity who has also publically discussed his own mental health struggles. Davidson’s comment was also a response to a comment former girlfriend Ariana Grande made about the celebrity.

Recently, rapper Kanye West took to Twitter, tweeting at almost a frenetic pace. He went after rapper Drake, while at the same time constantly flicking at his mental health. “You pick@on people with mental health issues,” he posted on December 13. And then “You are disrespectful to all people with mental health conditions so this is an opportunity for growth,” he tweeted later that day.
West’s Twitter tirade continued almost nonstop through Saturday. And tweeted about a post that Grande made about West feuding with Drake. “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.” Followed with, “I am able to experience first hand how people who have mental health issues get written off by society. Don’t listen to him cause he’s crazy. He’s washed cause he’s crazy etc…”
Davidson must have been following West on Twitter
Right before he dropped his chilling message, Davidson came to West’s defense on Instagram. “Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health,” Vulture reports. “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’s post was an indirect dig at Grande’s now-deleted tweet directed at West. “Guys, I know there are grown men arguing online, but Miley and I are dropping our beautiful new songs tonight so if ya’ll could please just for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that’d be so sick thank you.”
Grande apologizes after Davidson’s post
Grande later apologized. And said the comment wasn’t specifically about West. In a now-deleted tweet, she wrote, “With all due respect, I don’t need to use anyone to promote anything. Period. I was making a comment [about] 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 you feel well today.”
And added, “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 you have everyone you need and that’s not me, but I’m here too,” Vulture reports.
