On Thursday, Barstool Sports tweeted, “Does Pete Davidson have butthole eyes?”. The “satirical sports and pop culture blog” took a jab at Ariana Grande’s fiancé and she did not take the comment lightly. In a tweet, Grande clapped back, writing, “y’all do kno this man has an auto immune disease …… right ? ….. like you do understand what you’re doing when u do this right ? jus wanna make sure”.

Pete Davidson has Chron’s disease, a chronic inflammatory bowel disease that affects the lining of the digestive tract.
The SNL comedian told High Times during a video interview in 2016, “I got Chron’s disease when I was 17 or 18. And I found that medicines that the doctors were prescribing me and seeing all these doctors and trying new things … weed would be the only thing that would help me eat.”
Davidson added, “My stomach would be in pain all day and I wouldn’t be able to eat, but then I’d smoke and I can eat and do my shows.”
Us reports that Davidson was sober for several months, before he was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder in June, which is when he began smoking again.
June was also the same month that Davidson and Ariana Grande got engaged. Grande told Us, “We’re gonna, like, take our time to plan it … It’s gonna be, like, next year”.
