Ariana Grande’s ex-fiancé, Pete Davidson, has been getting the brunt of the backlash after their breakup. The comedian recently opened up about getting bullied online after their controversial split.

In his post, Davidson revealed that he has been the target of criticism and attacks even before he broke things off with Grande. “I’ve been getting online bullied and in public by people for 9 months,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’ve spoken about BPD [borderline personality disorder] 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.”

The “Saturday Night Live” star said that he chose to keep his mouth shut after his sudden breakup with the “Thank U, Next” singer. However, he was still surprised by how he has been treated, especially online. “I’m trying to understand how when something happens to a guy the whole world just trashes him without any facts or frame of reference," he added.

One reason he may have been unable to stay off the radar is that his ex has made it harder for fans to forget. Grande’s latest single, “Thank U, Next,” features references to him. “Even almost got married, And for Pete, I'm so thankful,” she sings on her latest single.

The song has been on top of the charts at the Billboard Hot 100 for the past few weeks. Aside from Davidson, she also mentions her other ex-boyfriends, including Mac Miller, Alvarez and Big Sean. Meanwhile, the music video is also trending across the internet. It pays homage to various flicks, including “Mean Girls,” “13 Going On 30,” “Bring It On” and “Legally Blonde.”

Meanwhile, Davidson also talked about his split with Ariana Grande on “SNL” in November. He said that it’s nobody’s business and that sometimes things just don’t work out. He went on to praise Grande, saying that she’s a strong and wonderful person. Finally, he wished her all the happiness in the world.

The ex-couple started dating in May. Then in June, the comedian and actor confirmed that he was engaged to Grande. Unfortunately, their engagement was shortlived. They ended their relationship, as well as their engagement, in October. Davidson confirmed the sad news on Oct. 20.

Aside from appearing on “SNL,” Davidson has also been seen in TV shows and movies such as “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Friends of the People,” “Sober Companion,” “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” “Give Converse with Pete Davidson,” “Eighty-Sixed,” “Click, Clack, Moo: Christmas at the Farm” and “The Guest Book.” He also appeared in several short films, including “TubbyMan,” “Archie Black,” “Grow a Guy,” “The Jay Z Story” and “Prom Queen.”

Davidson will be seen next in 2019 in the following movies: “Going Places” as Jack, “Big Time Adolescence” as Zeke and “What Men Want.”
