It’s not a surprise to see celebrities share personal moments on their social media account. But could this be an exception for the SNL cast member Pete Davidson?
The actor, also known for his successful career as a comedian, doesn’t have a TikTok account. Drug abuse, childhood traumas, and negative comments are a few reasons for Davidson to step aside from social media.
Despite all that, Davidson has been kindly recorded on his fan’s TikTok videos making jokes as usual. Being famous seems to be a tough task, but if you want to know what it is like to be in Pete’s shoes, continue reading.
Staying Off Social Media
Part of the process to recover the actor’s mental health involves staying away from social media for a good time. The negative comments for the polemic events in the past are Davidson’s price to pay to feel better.
His father’s death in the 9/11 events when he was 7 and the resulting depressive episodes impacted the comedian’s early life. He also had to deal with the abuse of drugs, needing help from many people to cope during that situation.
Beyond that, it’s not an impediment for the actor to appear on platforms such as TikTok with some of his fans. But Pete showed he can make some friendly exceptions once in a while and even make some jokes about it.
Controversy Is His Middle Name
One of the most controversial Pete’s moments was joking about his ex concert’s bomb attack in 2018. Arianna was sad about it, which caused an immediate negative reaction by lots of fans.
He caught social media’s attention once more after posting an alarming message. People got concerned this could be some kind of “suicidal allegory” by the young comedian in 2018.
Davidson would delete his Instagram account a few moments later, creating more controversy around his mental health state.
Pete made a joke in SNL, comparing the Catholic church and singer Kelly R (accused of pedophilia), earning him the hate of many people within the religious community due to such a disgraceful and offensive joke.
Growing Comedic Career
Things are not always easy in the entertainment industry and Davidson is proof of it. His first appearance on stage was at the age of 16 after he was dared by a group of friends who knew about his comedy skills.
It didn’t take too long till the comedian finally showed up on the screen in 2013 on the comedy series “Failosophy.” At this point, the young actor’s career boosted, working into many other MTV shows such as “Guy Code.”
His first Comedy Central’s stand-up was in the program showcase “Gotham Comedy Live.” It wasn’t till 2016 he showed up on his first “Special Pete Davidson: SMD” on the same channel
In 2014, Pete became the youngest member of “Saturday Night Live.” This helped him to get the attention of many other producers who saw talent in him.
A year later, the comedian jumped to the big screen in the film “Trainwreck” (2015). Gaining positive reviews, he was on his way to get more roles in movies.
2019 was a big year for his acting career, appearing as one of the main characters at “Big Time Adolescence.” He also accepted secondary roles in films such as “The Dirt” and “What Men Want.”
Dating featured women such as Ariana Grande and Sarah Margaret Qualley wasn’t enough. While Pete and Ariana Grande’s relationship almost ends up in them marrying, the couple split in order to seek better things in life.
The last girl who stole Pete’s heart is the supermodel Kaia Gerber, whose relationship was passing during rough times due to the actor’s mental health. Kaia’s Parents claimed to be supporting Davidson with the touching situation.
Yet, Davidson and Kaia talked about their official break up in early 2020. However, the couple was seen holding hands and dining regularly in NY.
The next few years are promising for Davidson’s career and the projects he would be part of. Roles like Blackguard in “The Suicide Squad 2” and “Marmaduke” are some of the newest projects in his career.
Many of us enjoyed and grew up watching Davidson’s work while he developed his career. It would be exciting to see this entertainment icon get better and enjoy life once again to continue showing his best self to the world.
