TMZ reports the Saturday Night Live cast member posted on Instagram – before deleting his account – with a message which read:
‘i really 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. [sic]

Pete’s post came after he reportedly defended Kanye West – who was in a Twitter spat with Ariana Grande, his former fiancee – for standing up about his mental health on Saturday (December 15).
He reportedly said to Kanye:
I can’t explain to you enough how difficult and scary it is to be honest about stuff like this.
People report the comedian came to the rapper’s defence after he’d criticised Grande for a joke she made regarding West’s feud with Drake, which West claimed made light of his mental health.
