Davidson says his harassment was so prevalent, he was finally forced to address it on Instagram. 

One thing that stood out was Davidson's mention that he has been dealing with this for nine months. He and Grande officially began dating in May, which is six months ago. 

Davidson has been forthcoming about his struggles with borderline personality disorder (or BPD). He has also discussed his suicidal ideation. 

Trigger Warning for Discussions of Suicide: "I tried to drown myself in the pool when I was in the fourth or fifth grade. I was trying to get my head stuck in the ladder in the deep end so I would not be able to get up," Davidson told Variety. "But I'm too much of a p----, and my head is too small."

Davidson has also discussed how the internet upsets him. "The internet is evil, and I don't like how it affects me," he said. "I don't like how the internet is a place where anybody can s--- on you and make anything up. I've worked really hard to get my brain to this place. I can't go online like everybody else because it's just a f---fest. And now I get to enjoy my life."

If the bullies are Ariana Grande superfans, then they are probably well aware of Davidson's mental health struggles and are weaponizing them against him. I can only imagine if they discovered internet users weaponizing Grande's PTSD or anxiety against her. 

Just let Davidson make fun of himself.
