“I’ve kept my mouth shut,” he wrote in an Instagram post on Monday. “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.”
Davidson, 25, says he has been bullied “online and in public” for nine months. He said the harassment has increased stress in his personal life but assured fans he won’t let it overcome him.
“No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself I won’t,” wrote Davidson, who’s been open about having borderline personality disorder. “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.”
Davidson’s post comes a few days after the release of Grande’s music video for “Thank U, Next,” which hit over 94 million views on YouTube.
Grande released the song shortly after she breaking off her engagement with Davidson. In the song, she expressed her gratitude to him and other ex-boyfriends including Mac Miller, whose death in September was followed by a wave of nasty trolling directed toward both Grande and Davidson.
People on Twitter reacted sympathetically to Davidson’s post. As Twitter user @thirlheaux put it, “LEAVE PETE DAVIDSON ALONE!!!”
