One month after posting an alarming message on Instagram, the ‘Saturday Night Life’ comedian pokes fun at his cry for help during an appearance on ‘Weekend Update’ with John Mulaney.
Pete Davidson joked about his suicide scare during a segment on “Saturday Night Live” on Saturday, January 19.
The comedian, 25, worried friends and fans when he posted a concerning message on Instagram back in December (2018).
“I really don’t want to be on this earth anymore. I’m doing my best to stay here for you but i actually don’t know how much longer i can last,” Pete wrote, before deleting his account.
On Saturday, he appeared on the “Weekend Update” segment on the comedy sketch show alongside fellow comedian – and former “SNL” writer – John Mulaney.
“I’ve been spending time with Pete to try to show him that you can have a life in comedy that is not insane,” John shared, and said their recent developing friendship. “A sober, domestic life.”
“Yeah, and after observing John’s life, I publicly threatened suicide,” Pete fired back before laughing. “I’m sorry, I know I shouldn’t make that joke.”
At the time of his suicide scare, Pete’s famous friends – including Jon Cryer, Machine Gun Kelly and Kid Cudi – posted supportive messages in response to his alarming post.
“Two and a Half Men” star Jon later confirmed that the comedian was safe and accounted for at the “Saturday Night Live” studios in New York.
In a series of since-deleted tweets, Ariana Grande, Pete’s ex-fiancee, revealed she was downstairs at the Comcast Building – where “SNL” is filmed – if Pete needed her.
“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 (sic),” she wrote in a message aimed at the comedian on Twitter.
