SNL cast member Pete Davidson was in the news this week after sharing a troubling social media post: one where he stated he didn’t want to live in this world anymore. Among the people calling to check in on him was Representative Dan Crenshaw. Yes, the eye patch guy from a few months ago (see Navy SEAL Mocked by SNL Won’t Demand Apology, Has Better Idea and Dan Crenshaw Appears on SNL’s ‘Weekend Update’ to Roast Pete Davidson).
What the congressman had to say is something I feel we can all stand to hear.

Everyone has a purpose in this world. God put you here for a reason. But it’s your job to find that purpose.
Not sure what is going on with Davidson. He was on SNL this weekend, so I’m assuming friends and family reached out. Apparently, not so much Ariana Grande stans (stalking fans) acting like douchebags in the comment section.
Pete Davidson just posted what is essentially a suicide note and the majority of the comments on it are cruel and encouraging him to take his own life. Stan culture is a huge mistake.

Social media was a huge mistake. Also, let’s please not make “stan culture” a thing we start saying.
What’s important here, especially during the holiday season, is to reach out if you ever need someone to talk to. Friends. Family. Acquaintances on Twitter. I know it doesn’t feel like it sometimes, but we’re all in this together. Anything you are going through, someone is probably going through it too. And they may know the way out. Read No, Suicide Isn’t the Answer.
Let’s all look out for each other. God bless.
