is definitely not a fan of Syracuse, New York, and in a bizarre rant in the middle of an interview declared the city could ‘suck his d***’, adding claims that police were deliberately attempting to arrest him.
The SNL actor was speaking about the release of his new movie, Big Time Adolescence, which was filmed in the city last year.
Appearing at Sundance Film Festival, : ‘It sucked. The whole town of Syracuse blows.’
He continued: ‘Funk ‘N Waffles was fun. But let’s be honest, they just found out I was there and tried to arrest me the entire time. So you can all suck my dick, Syracuse.’
Asked to elaborate on the claims, Pete added: ‘The cops, because there’s nothing going on there, so they were hunting me down the entire time and trying to arrest me.’
The other cast mates appeared to agree with him, and added that the biggest story in the town on the day of their arrival was Pete eating in the local waffle house.
‘You were trying to arrest me for bringing business to your town!’ he interjected, swearing at the camera before declaring: ‘Never again, Syracuse.’
The film’s director, Jason Orley, then made light of the comments by taking Pete’s beer away from him.
