Pete Davidson has said he doesnt want to be on this earth anymore minutes after throwing support behind Kanye West for opening up about mental health.
The SNL comic has openly struggled with his own mental health and praised Kanye earlier today after the Gold Digger rapper accused Ariana Grande of triggering his mental health.
Though Pete vowed to never let the bullies win earlier this month, Pete shared on Instagram on Saturday that he was struggling to keep on top of his mental health.
I really dont want to be on this earth anymore, he told his followers.
Im doing my best to stay here for you but i actually dont know how much longer i can last. all i ever tried to do was help people. just remember i told you so.
Minutes later, Pete appeared to have deleted his account.
However, as fans worried about his wellbeing and whereabouts, actor Jon Cryer confirmed Pete was accounted for at SNL.
Am hearing Pete Davidson is at SNL and accounted for.
We are thinking of you, Pete.
You are loved.

Petes social media exit comes shortly after the funnyman patted Kanye on the back for being honest about mental health and admitted he was disgusted that people had criticised the rapper for telling Ariana her comments had weighed on his mind.
Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health, Pete wrote on Instagram.
I cant explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this. We need people like Kanye. No one should ever point fingers at you for your bravery in speaking about mental health. Im seriously disgusted.
Earlier this month, Pete admitted he had been the victim of online abuse for nine months but vowed to never cave to the bullies wishes.
His honest post came shortly after his split from Ariana, who called of their engagement in September after a whirlwind five-month romance.
Ive kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything. Im trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the entire world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference. Especially in todays climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind boggling, he wrote on Instagram.
Ive been getting online bullied for 9 months. Ive spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who dont want to be on this earth.
I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I wont. Im 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.
