Just today, Pete Davidson was said to have went to a college basketball game between the Syracuse Orangemen and the Louisville Cardinals at the Carrier Dome. When he arrived, the reports state that he asked the sports fans in attendance, "Orange you delighted to have me here?" And this was met with hisses.
It all began in 2019, when Davidson filmed the comedy Big Time Adolescence in the city. It appeared he didn't enjoy it much. “Dude, I was filming this in Syracuse. You know, it's garbage out there; it's terrible,” he added while on The Howard Stern Program. “Even worse than Staten Island. The nicest hotel in Syracuse is a Ramada, which is like something out of a horror movie.”
The following year, he also shared via Twitter that he was “stuck in Syracuse” while attending the 2019 New York Comic Con. He claimed his hotel had broken air conditioner and no fire exit signs.
Of course, the inhabitants of Syracuse were not fans of what he had to say — even after three years had passed. According to a game attendee who spoke with Page Six, Pete anticipated the boos. “He brushed it off and had a chuckle, as did the locals.” According to this season ticket holder, "He dismissed it and had a good laugh."
Mike Curtis, a Syracuse University basketball reporter, tweeted a message from Davidson to the people of Syracuse after the game. “Thank you so much for having me and my friends in the office,” he added. “We had a fantastic time. So, is there now peace?”
It's tough to determine whether everything has been forgiven, but the comedian doesn't appear to want any more fighting with the city. Of course, he might be busy at the moment. He recently started a new job as a co-head writer on Saturday Night Live and has been touring around the world with his comedy tour.
