Pete Davidson Slams Mental Health Trolls Who Say He Can't See Ariana Grande

We recently learned that Ariana Grande and comedian Pete Davidson were dating. However, some people think that isn't a good idea. 

On Thursday (May 24) evening, Davidson went on Instagram and accused some of Grande's fans of bashing him because he suffers from a mental illness known as Borderline Personality Order. According to the comedian, these fans were saying that due to his illness, he shouldn't be dating anyone, especially Grande. But, Davidson had something to say right back to these critics. 

“Normally I wouldn’t comment on something like this cause like f— you. But I been hearing a lot of 'people with bpd can’t be in relationships' talk. I just wanna let you know that’s not true,” Davidson wrote in his IG story. “Just because someone has a mental illness does not mean they can’t be happy and in a relationship.”

He continued: “It also doesn’t mean that person makes the relationship toxic. Everybody is different and there are a lot of treatments for mental illnesses and I have done/am doing all of them. And I encourage those who struggle to seek help as well it has changed my life for the better.”

“I just think it’s f—— up to stigmatize people as crazy and say that they are unable to do stuff that anyone can do. It’s not their fault and it’s the wrong way for people to look at things,” Davidson added.

The comedian's message to continue to tell other people who battle mental illness not to listen to these naysayers. Davidson closed his message: “Mental illness is not a joke it’s a real thing. There’s kids out there killing themselves. And it’s f—— horrific. For all those struggling I want you to know that I love you and I understand you and it is going to be okay. That’s all. Love to everyone.” Read his note in its entirety below.
