New York City police reportedly met with “Saturday Night Live” cast member Pete Davidson on Saturday night after an Instagram post sparked concerns among fans.

Davidson, 25, who has been open about his struggles with borderline personality disorder and suicidal thoughts, wrote on his Instagram: “I don’t want to be on this earth anymore.”

“I’m doing my best to stay here for you but I actually don’t know how much longer I can last,” Davidson wrote. “All I’ve ever tried to do was help people. Just remember I told you so.” 

The post, which has since been deleted, sparked widespread comments of support for Davidson.


"Hang in there," wrote one fan, according to The Associated Press. "There is a lot of help out here. Surrender to some love ... I’m praying for you Pete. I’ve been there. It gets better.”

The AP, citing a police spokesman, reported that authorities visited Davidson to make sure he was OK, but declined to say where they met the comedian.

Davidson appeared on SNL’s live show Saturday to introduce musical guests Miley Cyrus, Mark Ronson and Sean Ono Lennon, according to the AP. He has been a cast member since 2014.

Davidson, whose highly-publicized, brief engagement to singer Ariana Grande ended in the fall, wrote on Instagram earlier this year: “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.”
