Trigger Warning: Suicide Ideation
Yesterday, West took to his Instagram to post a picture that read, “Skete Davidson dead at 28,” in response to the news that Pete Davidson and Kim Kardashian called it quits. The post was met with a lot of backlash because Davidson still struggles with his mental health and has opened up about his battle with suicidal thoughts before.
“I got as close as you can get — just like testing the waters,” the comedian expressed on CBS Sunday Morning on this topic. “Until I met the right treatments and met the right doctors and did all the work that you need to do to not feel that way, it got pretty dark and scary.”
Davidson also stated, “I used to do that. I used to close my eyes on a closed road usually at night and I would ride without a seatbelt.”
Having this in mind, fans didn’t appreciate how West could be putting Davidson in danger — something that Kardashian actually reprimanded West for before when he initially began his hurtful campaign against Davidson.
“U are creating a dangerous and scary environment,” Kardashian allegedly wrote to West not too long after the “Heartless” singer posted his controversial “Eazy” music video. “Someone will hurt Pete and this will be all your fault.”
Unfortunately for Kardashian and fans of Davidson, the warning fell on deaf ears. But that doesn’t mean she’s going down without a fight.
Kim Kardashian angry at Kanye West’s Pete Davidson jab
Yahoo! Entertainment reports Kim Kardashian is “not happy about the post,” so much so that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star apparently urged Kanye West to “take down the post” countless times. Although West eventually did take down his post four hours later, by then the damage was already done.
The source continued:
"“[Kim Kardashian] will never get back together with Kanye over the way he’s treated the people she loves and respects. She has tried incredibly hard to have a good co-parenting situation for the children. She won’t stand for this type of behavior from him.”"
In light of the controversial post, the source also ensured fans that Kardashian is still very much so rooting for Davidson and that just because they’re no longer together, doesn’t mean she won’t come to his defense whenever he needs her.
Today, there is no official word on how Davidson is faring after the jarring post. Perhaps he’s too preoccupied with filming his upcoming film, Wizards, in Australia to give West any energy. Even still, fans are hoping he’s taking care of himself through it all. We certainly feel the same way.
