Pete Davidson Deletes Instagram Pics as Ariana Grande Says 'Energy U Put Out Is What U Get Back'
Pete Davidson's decision to delete all his Instagrams comes after he clapped back at Ariana Grande's fans who criticized his Instagram comments
Pete Davidson has quietly deleted his entire Instagram feed.
Fans noticed that Davidson, 24, had wiped all his photos and videos off his account on Monday, the same day his fiancée Ariana Grande‘s ex-boyfriend Mac Miller spoke out about her engagement to the Saturday Night Live star.
Davidson’s previous Instagram update included an Instagram Story video of him and rapper Machine Gun Kelly smoking a blunt in Syracuse, New York, where the comedian has been filming his latest movie. However late Monday, he updated his story to assure fans all was well.
“No there’s nothing wrong. No nothing happened. No there’s nothing cryptic about anything. I just don’t wanna be on Instagram anymore. Or on any social media platform,” he wrote. “The internet is an evil place and it doesn’t make me feel good. Why should I spend any time on negative energy when my real life is f—ing lit. The fact that I even have to say this proves my point. I love you all and I’m sure I’ll be back at some point. 🙂 your neighborhood goon, Pete”
Meanwhile, Grande turned off comments on her Instagram posts and tweeted a cryptic post shortly after Davidson deleted his content.
“The energy u put out is exactly what u get back, please create a beautiful life for yourselves,” the singer, 25, wrote. Responding to a fan who remarked on her quieter round of promotion for her latest song “God Is a Woman,” Grande explained herself. “bc it destroyed my mental health and was horrible for me. i don’t remember anything ab those years of my life and am doing so much better now. career wise and health wise,” she commented. “Stop coming for me and my team when i’ve never been better literally in any department. LITERALLY. thank u guys for totally getting it and being so wonderfully celebratory of how incredibly things are going because that is real. 🙏🏼”
She added, “i’m prolly gonna post on der for a little while & take a breather from twitter & ig for a little. just sometimes can’t help but bump into some negative s— that really can bum u out and it’s not worth it honestly. promised i’d always tell you. i love u sm ! be well & happy.”
Davidson’s comment comes after he clapped back at Grande’s fans who criticized his Instagram comments.
It all started on Sunday when the Set It Up star, who is known for frequently commenting on his fiancée’s feed, wrote, “omg what a cutie,” on the post of Grande and her late grandfather, who died of cancer in July 2014.
Davidson came under fire for his comment presumably about Grande’s grandfather, but he responded back to one fan, writing, “Are you guys all insane? I was talking about how cute her grandpa is. What’s wrong with that? You guys will really look for anything to attack people. It’s sad.”

One week prior, he shut down speculation that he gave Grande and his ex-girlfriend Cazzie David the same “8418” pendant, revealing to fans that his fiancée has been wearing his late father’s medallion while David was in possession of a “replica.”
And Davidson isn’t the only one defending their relationship.
Recently, Grande backed her decision to include the song “Pete” on her upcoming album Sweetener.
“He’s my fiancé. This is my album. I’m an honest and emotional artist and human being and if my openness in my work isn’t for you, that’s OK,” she wrote to one fan. “I won’t be offended. Still wishing y’all all the love in the world.”
