Davidson’s verified Instagram account made its appearance Wednesday with his identifier @pmd, which means Pete Davidson’s full name, Peter Michael Davidson.
Although the account currently has no posts, Davidson only follows two people, his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, and actor Sebastian Stan.
It’s obvious why Davidson follows Kardashian, the couple has grown closer and closer since they started dating late last year.
However, Davidson’s choice to follow “Pam & Tommy” star Stan has left fans a little confused.
Why does Pete Davidson follow Sebastian Stan?
It’s unclear why exactly Davidson has given stan one of his limited followers. This may be a nod to an upcoming collaboration or an expression of friendship.
Interestingly, Stan doesn’t even follow the comedian, so it seems like a very one-sided friendship.
Fans think Sebastian Stan and Pete Davidson can have a project together.
The two don’t seem to have had a public friendship, so fans think this could be a sign that there’s something in the works for the couple.
It could also be a hint that Stan could appear as a host on ‘Saturday Night Live’, although no announcements have been made about future celebrity guests.
Of course, Davidson could be simply following Stan because he is a fan of the 39-year-old actor’s work and wanted to show his appreciation by following him on the platform.
Pete Davidson has previously returned to Instagram to promote new work.
This is the fourth time in four years that Davidson has rejoined social media, after he stopped sharing his life online in December 2018, following his split from Ariana Grande, explaining that it was due to his mental health.
“No, nothing happens. Nothing happened. No, there is nothing cryptic about anything. I just don’t want to be on Instagram anymore. Nor on any social media platform,” he wrote on his Instagram story after deleting all his posts in July. 2018.
“The internet is an evil place and it doesn’t make me feel good. Why should I spend time on negative energy when my real life is lit up? The fact that I have to say this proves my point,” the ‘The King of Staten Island’ actor continued, before hinting that he would return one day.
“I love you all and I’m sure I’ll be back at some point. The bully in your neighborhood, Pete,” Davidson concluded.
The 28-year-old comedian later created another account on Instagram, but ended up deleting it five months later. It was after that that Davidson returned to the platform in April 2019 to promote his comedy tour with John Mulaney, before deleting all of his posts and unfollowing everyone the following month.
Davidson tried again for the third time, creating a new account in May 2020 amid the press for his new film ‘The King of Staten Island’, but that account ultimately didn’t last long.
Pete Davidson may be preparing to respond to Kanye West
Among Davidson’s one million followers is Kanye West, who has been publicly criticizing the comedian because he is dating West’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. However, Davidson, probably for obvious reasons, has not reciprocated West’s follow-up.
Recently, the 44-year-old rapper deleted his Instagram account, apparently in an effort to make peace with Kardashian over the disturbing posts he had made about her and Davidson. West posted a photo of him standing alone on a stage, writing in the caption that he was “working on” his communication skills.
“I learned that capitalizing makes people feel like I’m yelling at them. I am working on my communication,” he wrote. “I can benefit from a team of creative professionals, organizers, mobilizers and community leaders. Thank you all for supporting me.”
Except now, West has resumed posts on his Instagram account with messages directed at Davidson, defending his posts towards the comedian as “revenge.”
