Pete Davidson addresses borderline personality disorder on 'Saturday Night Live'
Country music singer Jason Aldean honors the victims of the Las Vegas shooting by singing 'I Won't Back Down' by the late rock legend, Tom Petty.
Joining anchors Colin Jost and Michael Che for the segment, Davidson said, “As some of you may know, I was recently diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, a form of depression. Depression affects more than 16 million people in this country and there’s no cure per se, but for anyone dealing with it, there are treatments that can help.
"First of all, if you think you’re depressed, see a doctor and talk to them about medication," Davidson continued. "Also, be healthy. Eating right and exercise can make a huge difference. And finally, if you’re in the cast of a late night comedy show it might help if they do more of your sketches.”
Clarifying his comments to Jost, Davidson said, “I was born depressed, but it might make me feel better if I was on TV more.”
In support of this notion, Davidson unfolded a note from his “doctor.”
“To whom it may concern: Please use Pete in more sketches where he gets to kiss the host and use more of his rap videos, which I hear are actually really good," read Davidson. "Also — this doctor’s good — also, he should play Rex Tillerson a lot. Signed, Pete Davidson’s doctor.”
Pete Davidson is celebrating being sober for the first time in almost a decade.
