Sour times for Snooki.

The self-described "guidette," 21, was booed Friday morning at Philadelphia's Wing Bowl, an annual eating contest.

As she stepped out in front of the sold-out crowd at the Wachovia Center, people began heckling the MTV Jersey Shore star (real name: Nicole Polizzi).

When her image appeared on a big screen, they began booing loudly, according to local newspaper reports.

Despite the harsh reaction, she kept on fist-pumping.

Later, while being interviewed by a local TV station, she was asked how she felt about the booing incident. She said, "It's Philadelphia!" and gave the camera the middle finger.
