As many know who follow celebrity news and entertainment, Pete Davidson and Ariana Grande called off their short engagement/relationship a few months ago—and, since then, Grande has been acting pretty brand new. With a number one single, “Thank U, Next,” and a bunch of “female empowerment” movements, many feel as though Grande is better off without Davidson.
But, if you know anything about fan circles to artists, you’d know that they can be very aggressive when people come for their “queen.” Ariana fans have been mighty angry at Davidson for a number of reasons—even while they were engaged. Stans of the pop singer didn’t like Davidson’s comedy style, making fun of Grande’s traumatic incident with terrorism in Manchester last year, and, numerous other inappropriate jokes. But, after the two parted ways, many assumed that Davidson had done Grande wrong in some type of way.
In response, many people on social media began to attack Davidson from behind a keyboard. Davidson, who has been open about his struggle with his own mental health, had enough and issued a serious statement to all people online about his mental state and that he will not let the trolls get to him.
Many people began to support Davidson because wishing death on someone who is suicidal is honestly cold and heartless. The relationship was between the two of them, not the two of them and millions of young girls on the Internet. Grande, of course, supports Davidson 100% and has since responded to his honest statement online on her own Instagram.
The singer said to her fans that she needs them to be “gentler” with others. She stated that she cares deeply about Pete and his mental health, and stated she will always love him no matter what—and if they’ve gotten a different impression from her recent work, they are mistaken. She also said that they need to drop the “bully” act and let it all go.
And, many online agreed.
#DidYouKnow it’s possible to be nice to both Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson without demanding they get back together or disrespecting Mac Miller and his tragic death? Oh you didn’t? Oh honey 😳

I just could not imagine how someone could post something negative about Pete Davidson today, after reading his message on twitter and Instagram. Like why call him the ugliest dude? If you have something not nice to say, don’t say it. Be positive. No one likes a bully.
