i love pete davidson ??? with all of my heart and soul??? imagine thinking there’s anyone that i love more. he is so brave and pure and kind and SMART and funny and he deserves nothing but nice things ever.
all he’s known his entire life is abandonment and pain and hatred and yet all he does is be?? an angel?? before snl let trump host he literally said ON SNL that we shouldn’t take trump as a joke and then dragged him publicly days after he hosted. he wouldn’t even look ann coulter in the eye at the rob lowe roast until he called her a cunt and then booed her when she made a racist joke. he’s used social media and his public platform to promote black lives matter, feminism, lgbt rights and more.
he’s so humble and it makes me sad because he genuinely believes it when people say he doesn’t deserve to be on snl. he does everything with his mother and sister in mind and as soon as he made enough money, he bought his sister an apartment and his mother a bigger house. he always talks about the importance of women and how women have always been the most important, prominent people in his life. he was horribly bullied all throughout his youth, groomed by an older man as a teenager and emotionally abused by his first girlfriend.
but pete is so good! he doesn’t let his past define him (even though he talks about it all the time lol) and he learns from it and grows. his multiple suicide attempts, struggles with addiction and self harm have been incredibly inspiring to me for years, and i’m so happy that people with bpd have him to look up to now. pete talking about bpd (a constantly ignored mental illness) on the most watched television show in the country is the most important thing snl has done in years imo. he uses his platform to talk about important issues. he made jokes about it because in the end, he wants to show mentally ill people that they can have the same level of success. he wants to show mentally ill people that they aren’t alone and that if he can do it, they can do it.
pete davidson is so so important and he deserves the entire world.
