Celebrities Offer Support After Pete Davidson's Troubling Instagram Post
Jada Pinkett Smith and Cardi B sent him messages of support.
Pete Davidson has everyone talking about suicide prevention after an alarming post on social media.
“I don’t really want to be on this earth anymore. I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last,” the "Saturday Night Live" comedian wrote.
There was a real concern the 25-year-old comic might harm himself, triggering a welfare check by the New York Police, who rushed to Rockefeller Center in Manhattan to see if he was OK.
The audience let out a collective sigh of relief when he appeared live to introduce pop star Miley Cyrus as the musical guest of the evening on Saturday.
But the post led to an outpouring of support from fellow celebrities. Among them, Jada Pinkett Smith wrote, “Pete Davidson … hang in there. There is a lot of help out here,” while Meghan McCain said, “Sending love and light to Pete Davidson.”
Cardi B sent her support in the form of an Instagram video, referencing how online bullies attacked Davidson after his breakup.
Ex-fiancée Ariana Grande reportedly rushed over to the SNL studio before she was allegedly turned away from security.
Davidson ended up being cut from several sketches after apparently missing dress rehearsals. He stayed in the dressing room in his pajamas, sources said.
He did not join fellow cast members at the end of the show for the final bow.
After the show, rapper and actor Machine Gun Kelly flew in from Chicago to be by his side.
SNL executive producer Lorne Michaels confirmed that Pete Davidson was “doing fine” after the show.
