This is not okay. Ariana Grande’s fans are harassing Pete Davidson on social media. The Saturday Night Live star took to Instagram to share a couple of snaps with his costars to promote his upcoming film Big Time Adolescence.
Pete returned to Instagram after four months and instead of a warm welcome he was blasted with comments making fun of him. Several commented, “Thank You, Next” ruining the message of the amazing song that Grande released recently.
Pete had taken a break from the photo-sharing app because of the bullying that took place there. He was constantly bombarded by hateful comments telling him that he was ugly and not good enough for the Sweetener singer.
The comments’ section of his latest post which is a carousel of seven shots is filled with nasty comments. So much so that Ari’s manager, Scooter Braun, jumped in to defend Pete. He responded to the harassment with a straightforward, “Stop the bullsh*t.”
Braun’s comment further read, “It is nothing like that and Pete is a good dude. No one has hate for this guy and he is a stand up guy. Show respect because trust me everyone on this side knows he deserves it and wishes him well.”
What’s wrong with people, though? What has Pete even done? His post was not even about Ariana and he has not given anyone any reason for criticizing him! Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson are clearly on good terms as Ariana clearly says in her ex anthem that she is thankful for Pete.
But is Ariana really the one to blame for all the “Thank You, Next” hate Pete is getting? When Pete had poked fun at their failed engagement on his comedy show, Ari had taken to Twitter to post, “for somebody who claims to hate relevancy u sure love clinging to it huh.”
She had added another tweet that read, wait for it, “thank u, next.”
