Snooki’s NYE Ball Drop Banned, ‘Not Appropriate’ Says Time Square Officials

Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi’s plan to be dropped in a glass ball above New York’s Times Square has just been crushed by the fun police — city officials — who tell RadarOnline.com it would “not be appropriate.”

A spokesperson for the Times Square Alliance said they can “guarantee that Snooki will not be in any way associated with the official New Year’s Eve Ball.”

“It was never intended or requested for Snooki to be in the actual New Year’s Eve Ball in Times Square,” officials say. “We would not
consider this to be an appropriate integration into this historical event and the iconic Waterford Crystal Times Square Ball.”

The story was first broken by PopEater.

As late as Monday, the beehive queen was more than excited to be part of the celebration, jokingly telling USA today that the ball drop would turn her into “a friggin’ hamster.”

Snooki’s peeps apparently reached out to event organizers but the request to have her in a separate ball on a set-back roof came too
late and was too impractical to fit into the outdoor events, according to officials.
