Celebs pour out support for Pete Davidson.
This weekend, fans have been voicing their support for actor and comedian Pete Davidson after the Saturday Night Live star issued a jarring message that suggested that he was on the brink of suicide. While he's since deleted the post and his Instagram account altogether, his revelation has sparked a new conversation about celebrities, mental illness, as well as online bullying.
Davidson, who is not on any other social platforms reportedly turned off his cellphone and as a result, his famous friends and supporters, including ex-girlfriend Ariana Grande, have had no choice but to actively send out messages of support for Davidson via social media, primarily through Twitter.
Most recently, fellow Jon Cryer confirmed that Davidson is "accounted for" and is on the SNL set this evening.
Among those who have reached out publicly and asking Davidson to call are Kid Cudi, who also publicly faced a battle with depression. Other's voiced their support as an overarching means of sparking a conversation, including Nicki Minaj who received a great deal of criticism after bringing in the subject of Mac Miller's death by overdose earlier this year, alluding to the online disparagement that Davidson has faced by opposers since Miller's death and his breakup with Grande. "Y'all did the same thing to Mac Miller until he died," she wrote.
Among the celebrities who have solicited their shoulders include Jada Pinkett-Smith and Machine Gun Kelly who tweeted out that he was on a flight headed Pete's way to check on his friend.
