Just as quickly as it started, the Ariana Grande-Pete Davidson whirlwind romance has now come to an end. We don’t really know what happened, except that it was amicable since both acknowledged it wasn’t “the right time.” But netizens are reacting anyway. Twitter especially has become a hotbed of reactions, especially from Ariana’s fans. From the get-go, this relationship was a highly publicized one, and many have put in their two cents in the young couple’s future, so it’s not really a surprise that fans are giving them out again, now that it’s officially over.
Browsing through Twitter, I immediately see six major reactions to this news. If you’ve tweeted your feelings too, see if you classify in one or more of these.
These came from people who genuinely believed the couple will work out. They’ve become too invested in this relationship and now they’re left heartbroken. Lesson of the day: Try not to get too attached to celebrity couples—especially to ones that happen too fast.

The not surprised
If there are hopeless romantics, on the other side of the spectrum are the cynics. They’re here to tell the above group “I told you so.” This is the only natural end to this relationship, they say. Move on. That’s it.

What do we do with the Pete Davidson track now?
There were things said, things done that the couple did to show each other how in love they were. Well, they can’t take them back now. Case in point: Ariana Grande’s “Pete Davidson” track. Not to mention, several tattoos, plus their shared home and pet pig. What’ll happen to them now? Netizens think

Post-breakup Ariana Grande
Both Ariana and Pete haven’t issued a statement yet other than that issue with the “timing.” We’re still waiting for any posts from Ariana on her social media accounts. But until then, we’re left speculating on how she’s taking life’s latest curveball. Meanwhile, her fans seem to think this breakup is something she should celebrate.

Post-breakup Pete Davidson
While it was reported that the split was something they both agreed on, and there’s no bad blood between the now exes, looking at tweets, it’s pretty clear netizens believe that Pete “lost” in this breakup. This new hashtag, #PeteDavidsonIsPoorAgainParty, says it all.

Namjoon as the new guy?
Calm down. It isn’t what you think. Personally, I was surprised too when I saw that Namjoon’s name keeps popping up on Twitter, tucked in between those other reactive tweets. But apparently, some fans are somehow making BTS’ leader part of the narrative. Ariana Grande and Namjoon as a couple has somehow gained a fanbase. I researched, and there exists fanfiction of Ariana Grande and Namjoon on Wattpad. Yep. There’s that.
