Ariana Grande hit back at fans who were bullying ex-boyfriend Pete Davidson, and made it clear that she still cares deeply for him.
“I know u [sic] already know this, but I feel I need to remind my fans to please be gentler with others I really don’t endorse anything but forgiveness and positivity,” the 25-year-old singer captioned a message she shared Tuesday on Instagram along with the “Saturday Night Live” star’s recent post about online bullying.

“I care deeply about Pete and his health,” she added. “I’m asking you to please be gentler with others, even on the internet. I’ve learned thru [sic] my own mistakes not to be reactive on socials, so I do understand, but you truly don’t know what anybody is experiencing ever, regardless of what they choose to display on social media or how they may appear in public.”
Grande continued, “I can promise u [sic] that so please let whatever point you’re trying to make go. I will always have irrevocable love for him and if you’ve gotten any other impression from my recent work, you might have missed the point.”
The comments appeared to be in response to Davidson’s post on Monday about how “when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him.”
“I’ve kept my mouth shut. Never mentioned any names, never said a word about anyone or anything,” the 25-year-old actor’s post read. “I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole entire world just trashes him without any facts of frame of reference.”
“Especially in today’s climate where everyone loves to be offended and upset it truly is mind-boggling,” he added. “I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months. I’ve spoken about BPD and being suicidal publicly only in the hopes that it will help bring awareness and help kids like myself who don’t want to be on this earth.”
Davidson continued, “I just want you guys to know. No matter how hard the internet or anyone tries to make me kill myself. I won’t. I’m upset I even have to say this. To all those holding me down and seeing this for what it is – I see you and I love you.”
The pair made headlines recently after they called off their engagement after only a few months. They started dating in June and a few weeks later got engaged.
