Pete Davidson is not ok. This Monday, after months of staying silent about his split from Ariana Grande, the Saturday Night Live comedian shared a shocking post about his current mental state.

“I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything. 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. Especially in today’s climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling,” he wrote on Instagram.

As readers know, Davidson and Grande, both 25, called it quits this October after about six months together. The sudden breakup came weeks after their engagement, and days after Grande’s ex, Mac Miller, died of an accidental overdose.

Soon after, Miller fans began slamming Davidson, accusing him of mistreating the “thank u, next” singer and making fun of his looks.

“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 hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth,” wrote Davidson.

The actor has opened up about his mental health struggles many times before, and even made jokes about his anxiety. After Mac Miller’s death, however, he began to get some horrific death threats from online haters — and he’s had enough.

“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. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is - I see you and I love you,” wrote Davidson.
