Yesterday, Ariana Grande's ex-fiancé Pete Davidson opened up about the bullying he has received both on and offline since his engagement to Grande ended. Grande reposted his message on her own Instagram Story this morning and added her own note to her fans, particularly those who have made negative remarks about him.
"I know u already know this, but I feel I need to remind my fans to please be gentler with others," she started. "I really can't endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity. I care deeply about Pete and his health. I'm asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet. I've learned thru my own mistakes not to be reactive on socials so I 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."
Davidson originally wrote that he had reached his limit just tolerating the bullying:
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 trashed him without any facts or frame of reference. Especially in today’s climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it is truly mind boggling. I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months. I’ve spoken about BPD [borderline personality disorder] 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. 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.
