"I don't think online is good. It doesn't make me very happy," Davidson says.
Pete Davidson is opening up about his time in rehab and exactly why he quit Instagram.
While in Sundance promoting his new film "Big Time Adolescence," the "Saturday Night Live" star spoke about his time at a treatment center in Park City four years ago. And in typical Pete Davidson fashion, he poked fun at his entire experience.
"I love Park City, Utah, because the last time I was here, I was in rehab," Davidson told Variety during a festival junket. "It's nice to be on the other side of it."
"And, [it] also speaks wonders to your rehab facilities," he added while taking a sip of a beer. "Cirque Lodge baby. It was like four years ago. It worked out great. I love it here. The snow and the, you know, snow."
When asked if he's done with social media "forever," Davidson simply replied, "Yeah, I can't go on that for obvious reasons."
"Just don't go online," he continued. "I don't think online is good. It doesn't make me very happy...Even if it's not about me. It's just like random shit like, 'Trump farts'. You just see shit all day, but yeah I'm not a fan of it."
The actor also spoke about filming "Big Time Adolescence" in Syracuse, New York. While he enjoyed bleaching his hair for the role, Davidson said he wasn't a fan of where the movie was shot.
"It sucked," Davidson said. "The whole town of Syracuse blows. Let's be honest, they just found out I was there and tried to arrest me the whole time."
The comedian wasn't joking about being arrested, as he recalled being pulled over by police and charged with possessing marijuana while driving home one weekend.
"The cops, because there's nothing going on there, they were hunting me down the whole time," Davidson said. "They tried to arrest me for bringing business to your town. Never again, Syracuse."
