Twitter was an entire battleground of drama on Saturday. Kanye West and Ariana Grande exchanged a few jabs at each other, which ultimately led to Ari’s ex Pete Davidson getting involved then ending with a very dark Instagram post before deleting his account altogether. It was the equivalent of eating a sundae only to discover the chocolate sprinkles on top were really mouse droppings. Thankfully Pete is fine and last night he made a very brief appearance during Saturday Night Live.
After Pete caused the entire world to slip him the number for a suicide hotline after saying he didn’t want to be here anymore, Ariana tried to reach out to him on Twitter:

Pete’s post caused major concern for many people, especially fans who reached out to the NYPD to check on him. Ultimately he was found at NBC Studios in New York City rehearsing for last night’s episode. However, his appearance was only relegated to a pre-recorded sketch and introducing musical guests Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson. Today things seem to have calmed down, especially since Ariana has apparently deleted all of her tweets from yesterday. A quick check on her Twitter page reveals that her last tweet was on December 14 in reference to her new single ‘Imagine‘, yet everything else has disappeared entirely. However, she did still interact with fans whose concern for Davidson far outweighed her failed attempt at garnering buzz for her new song. When one fan asked why didn’t she text Davidson to check on him Ari responded with the following;
me: trying to figure out why so many people are @ me

I’m sure Ari didn’t intend for her initial post to explode into such a debacle but if she was looking for attention she most certainly got it. Then again, this entire situation will more than likely go down in history under the category of What NOT To Do When You Want To Market Your New Song.
Here’s Pete last night introducing Miley and her ear murdering Christmas song on SNL.
