Kanye West's recent Twitter activity has many social media users, including himself, speaking up about mental health.
Unfortunately, Ariana Grande made a bad joke about Kanye's online feud with Drake, which the 41-year-old rapper interpreted as her attacking his mental health.
I know Ariana said this to be cool and didn’t mean no harm but I don’t like even slightest level of slight commentary from someone I know loves and respects me pic.twitter.com/T9VXaIj9MX— ye (@kanyewest) December 15, 2018
Kanye tweeted out Ariana's message promoting her song "Imagine" along with Miley Cyrus' new cover of the Christmas classic "Happy XMas (War is Over)." Of course, Ari was just trying to be clever while countless memes and conversations were coming about from Kanye and Drake's feud.
All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health so @ArianaGrande you know I got love for you but until you’re ready to really make sure everyone’s ok don’t use me or this moment to promote a song— ye (@kanyewest) December 15, 2018
But Kanye took it personally, and although he clarified he has love for Ariana, he was hurt by what she said. The 25-year-old pop star was quick to apologize in a since-deleted tweet, and continued on Twitter about how she had made a mistake.
Well, Pete Davidson caught wind of the whole situation, and in a since-deleted post, wrote on Instagram:
“Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health. I can’t 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. I’m seriously disgusted.”
While Pete didn't name Ariana specifically, many are sure his post was directed at her.
And his next post was extremely alarming. The 25-year-old comedian shared a message to his Instagram, reading, "I’m doing my best to stay here for you but i actually don’t know how much longer i can last. all i’ve ever tried to do was help people. just remember i told you so."
Tons of celebrities flocked to social media to share their support with Pete, letting him know he's not alone. John Cryer took to Twitter to let everyone know that Pete was accounted for at the Saturday Night Live studio.
Am hearing Pete Davidson is at SNL and accounted for.— Jon Cryer (@MrJonCryer) December 15, 2018
We are thinking of you, Pete.
You are loved.

Ariana then tweeted again, seemingly letting everyone know she was at 30 Rockefeller, where the SNL studio is. "I’m downstairs and I’m not going anywhere if you need anyone or anything. I know u have everyone u need and that’s not me, but i’m here too," she wrote in a since-deleted tweet.
We're not sure if Ariana has spoken to Pete or if she's just there to make sure he's okay, but this just shows how important it is to consider one's mental health. At the end of the day, these celebrities are just people, and leaving nasty comments or bullying someone's emotional state will affect them just like anyone else.
We can be so insensitive. God bless Kanye & Pete. Being flippant about mental illness speaks more about you than them. Stop saying the word love & live it. Love is an action.— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) December 15, 2018
We hope everyone involved is okay.
