Pete Davidson by telling the truth about suffering from mental illness serves as a reminder how cruel the internet is at times. Even though he is on a television show, keep in mind that S.N.L ratings are at an all-time low. Also you have to factor in Davidson’s break-up with Ariana Grande. Couple that with a mental health diagnosis, him constantly being bullied online, his ex getting her tattoo replaced of him, with her deceased ex (Mac Miller), and the fact his ex-girlfriend is one of the most famous people on the planet making music about their break-up was a recipe for disaster.
Even though he bares a striking resemblance to Casper the Friendly Ghost, suicide would be a horrible ending for the Staten Island comedian. Hopefully Lorne Michaels can get Pete Davidson the help needs this holiday season because the world wouldn’t be the same without the funnyman.
