Pete takes on on­line bul­lies


Pete David­son says no mat­ter what you do to him, he’s not go­ing to kill him­self.

Wait, what? Yes, ex­actly what you just read. On­line trolls can’t bully him to death, he says.

“I’ve been get­ting on­line bul­lied and in pub­lic by peo­ple for nine 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,” the Satur­day Night Live ac­tor said bluntly on Mon­day on In­sta­gram.

“I just want you guys to know. No mat­ter how hard the in­ter­net or any­one tries to make me kill my­self. I won’t.”

The Satur­day Night Live ac­tor was pre­sum­ably re­fer­ring to his split from pop star Ari­ana Grande.

The singer put David­son’s state­ment and a com­ment of her own on her In­sta­gram story, urg­ing her fans to change their be­hav­iour.

“I care deeply about pete and his health. I’m ask­ing you to please be gen­tler with oth­ers, even on the in­ter­net,” Grande said, in part.
