Pete Davidson’s return to Syracuse didn’t go over so well with local sports fans.
The “Saturday Night Live” star was booed at a men’s basketball game at the Carrier Dome on Saturday, three years after he called the city “trash” in an interview with Howard Stern.
“Pete seemed to be prepared for what was coming to him,” a season ticket holder who attended the game between Syracuse Orange and Louisville Cardinals exclusively told Page Six. “He brushed it off and had a laugh, as did the locals.”
It appears Davidson, 28, was trying to blend in with the crowd. The comedian kept a low profile in a gray hoodie, sunglasses and a Cuse hat.
“Pete remained bundled throughout the game. Maybe because of the single digit temps,” the insider added, “or perhaps because of the cold welcome from natives.”

Multiple sources told Page Six that Davidson attended the game with entrepreneur and Syracuse athletics superfan Adam Weitsman, who is known for inviting celebrity guests to sit courtside.
“During halftime, campus police escorted Pete up to Adam’s suite, which cost approximately $1.3 million to renovate,” one source told us. “Everyone was trying to follow them in but they kept walking.”
We’re told Davidson and Weitsman left shortly after halftime and dined at Funk ’n Waffles.
Syracuse basketball reporter Mike Curtis later revealed a video message from Davidson “for the city of Syracuse” via Twitter.
“Thank you so much for having me and my friends in the building,” he said. “We had a really great time. So, peace?”

Davidson previously spent time in the Syracuse area while filming 2019’s “Big Time Adolescence” with stars like Machine Gun Kelly, Sydney Sweeney and Jon Cryer.
“Dude, I was shooting this movie out in Syracuse. Syracuse, you know, it’s trash,” the Staten Island native said on “The Howard Stern Show” at the time. “Worse than Staten Island. The nicest hotel in Syracuse is, like, a f–king Ramada.”
He dissed the city again in 2019, telling Variety, “It sucks. The whole town of Syracuse blows.”
The “King of Staten Island” star was dating Ariana Grande at the time. The two split and called off their engagement in October 2018 after five months together.
Davidson is currently dating Kim Kardashian, who was not in attendance for Saturday’s game. The reality star was instead dealing with ongoing drama involving estranged husband Kanye West.
