‘I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore’ – American comedian, Pete Davidson’s suicide note he posted on Instagram reads.
The post has however been deleted and his safety has been confirmed, but not after he deleted his Instagram account.
Davidson’s post came after his ex-fiancée Ariana Grande commented 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 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.”
After Kanye’s reply, Grande tweeted that she was
“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 tweets, Davidson who has mental health issues wrote on Instagram,
“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 then 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.” He then said, “I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore,” before deleting his Instagram account.
