“Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson posted a disturbing message Saturday morning stating he doesn’t “want to be on this earth anymore,” then deleted his Instagram account.
In the post, Davidson 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.” See an image of the message below.
NBC confirmed to the NYPD that Davidson is accounted for and is at work at 30 Rockefeller, according to the New York Times.
Before his account was deleted, fans and followers had commented with messages of support, though some commenters urged the star to go through with it.
Davidson has been open about his diagnosis with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and the difficulties that poses. Roughly an hour earlier, he had shared a message on the platform praising Kanye West for speaking out about mental health.
Davidson split up with fiancee Ariana Grande in mid-October. Since, he’s posted about being bullied on social media, and at one point indicated he wouldn’t kill himself “no matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me.”
“I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference,” he wrote on Instagram Dec. 3. “Especially in today’s climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it is truly mind boggling. I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months.”
“I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth,” he continued. “I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t. I’m upset I even have to say this.”
