Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson has been accounted for and seems to be fine after he wrote an unsettling Instagram post. He has since deleted his social media accounts but has been getting an outpouring of support.
“I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last,” Davidson, who is very open about his mental health, wrote on Instagram. “All I’ve ever tried to do was help people. Just remember I told you so.” The Instagram post appeared after he showed support to Kanye West for tweeting about mental illness.
Among those expressing their support included Jon Cryer who tweeted, “Am hearing Pete Davidson is at SNL and accounted for. We are thinking of you, Pete. You are loved. (And just a heads up, when you finally turn on your cell, it’s gonna go apeshit for a little while).”
Meghan McCain wrote on Twitter: “We need to be kinder to each other… Like I said on the show – it is okay if your holiday is not easy and happy. Sending love and light to Pete Davidson.”
In addition, Jada Pinkett Smith sent love and support to Davidson saying, “Hang in there. There is a lot of help out here. Surrender to some love some where around you … today! Right now! And then … let in the help that will become available. I’m praying for you Pete. I’ve been there. It gets better.”
Singer Ariana Grande, Davidson’s ex-fiance also showed concern. “I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything,” she wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted. ” I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but i’m here too.”
