AceShowbiz - Pete Davidson has finally made his return to Instagram nearly two months after calling off his engagement to Ariana Grande. But instead of receiving warm welcome from his followers, the 24-year-old comedian was getting dragged.
Taking to the photo-sharing platform on Wednesday, November 28, Pete shared several pictures from his upcoming movie "Big Time Adolescence" which also stars Machine Gun Kelly and Jon Cryer among others. In the caption of the post, he announced that the movie had been selected to screen at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
It appears most of his followers couldn't care less about the announcement, though. Instead of sending him congratulatory messages, they trolled him by flooding the comment section with, "thank u, next," a clear reference to Ariana's mega hit. "Literally no one asked," another wrote, while one other simply dubbed him "idiot."
One Ariana fan even said that the "Saturday Night Live" was canceled for "breaking with Ariana bc she's doing much better BYE." Thankfully for him, Ariana's manager Scooter Braun came to his defense and clapped back at the said fan. "Stop the bulls**t. It is nothing like that and Pete is a good dude," he said. "no one has hate for this guy and he is a stand up guy. Show respect because trust me everyone on this side knows he deserves it and wishes him well."
Pete and Ariana called off their engagement in early October following a whirlwind romance. While the "No Tears Left to Cry" singer has been vocal about their split on social media, it is not the same with Pete, though he has no problem talking about it during a standup gig or on "SNL".
"It's nobody business and sometimes things just don't work out," he said in a recent episode of the Emmy-winning show. "And that's okay. She's a wonderful, strong person and I genuinely wish her all of the happiness in the world."
