Ariana Grande Wants Her Fans To Go Easy On Pete Davidson
After Pete Davidson posted an emotional statement to Instagram addressing the emotional toll online bullying has taken on his mental health, his ex-fiancée Ariana Grande has told her fans to "be gentler" with him.
In a direct message to a fan on Twitter, Ariana revealed that although she hasn't seen any of the hate Pete's been getting because he blocked her, she still cares "deeply about [Pete] and his health and would never encourage any kind of mistreatment".
"I care about him deeply," she reiterated.
Yesterday, Pete opened up about his mental health and his experience with social media over the course of his high profile but shortlived romance with Ari, saying:
"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."
After replying to the fan on Twitter, Ariana also posted a statement to her Instagram story with a screengrab of Pete's statement, writing:
"i know u already know this but i feel i need to remind my fans to please be gentler with others. i really don't endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity," she wrote. The post continued:
"i've learned thru my own mistakes not to be reactive on socials so i do understand. but you truly don't know what anybody is experiencing ever. regardless of what they choose to display on social media or how they may appear in public. i can promise u that. so please let whatever point you're trying to make go. I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you've gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point. <3"
In Ariana's latest music video, for her break up anthem "thank u, next", Ariana wrote that she would love Pete "always" on his Mean Girls inspired Burn Book page, adding "sry I dipped" as a message to him about the end of their relationship.
