Although Pete Davidson likes to make people laugh on "Saturday Night Live," his recently-revealed mental health situation is no fun and games. Possibly taking note of past, deceased comedians, who suffered from depression, several people have come to Davidson's side in his time of need. Even ex-girlfriend, Ariana Grande, tweeted that she was at his home, after having read his post and seeing the severity of his condition. According to USA Today, Davidson's Instagram post regarding his mental health struggles was deleted sometime shortly after being uploaded.

"Bravo Kanye West for standing up for yourself and speaking out against mental health. I can't explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this. We need people like Kanye."

Pete Davidson's mental health isn't a topic he's avoided in the past. He talked about it during an interview with Howard Stern after his break-up with Ariana Grande. Unfortunately, regardless of his condition, Davidson's breakup didn't matter to those who go hard for Grande.
