Mr Met gives fan the finger, employee done with mascot duty

As usual when it comes to personnel decisions, the Mets are totally screwing this one up, because Mr. Met did nothing wrong.

The New York Mets (usually) lovable mascot made headlines for flipping a certain finger at Wednesday night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers, a vulgar act that has cost Mr. Met (or, more accurately, the employee playing Mr. Met) his job.

Mets mascot Mr Met pulls the finger at a fan.

The New York Mets have apologised for the "inappropriate" action of the employee, saying they were dealing with the matter "internally". "We do not condone this type of behavior".

"That was the coolest thing Mr Met has ever done", said journalist Eoin Higgins.

When asked if he heard other fans in the section harassing Mr. Met, De Lucia said, "At the time I did not". The team has reached the point that even the mascot is done with watching the product on the field.

Mr. Met sports an oversize head with baseball seams and has only four digits - three fingers and a thumb - on his hand.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins (10) argues a call with umpire Fieldin Culbreth during the fourth inning of a baseball game against the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, June 1, 2017, in New York. Injuries to pitchers Noah Syndergaard, Jeurys Familia and home run slugger Yoenis Cespedes are just a few reasons the Mets have flailed in 2017. “That is why Coach wanted to get us out early and get us going.

After a win over Miami on May 5, the Mets tweeted a photograph of T.J. Rivera wearing the star-of-the-game crown in their clubhouse, and the background included the locker of backup catcher Kevin Plawecki and a clearly visible sex toy. Oh, and the Tim Tebow circus.

A person tweeted a short video of Mr. Met walking into a tunnel at Citi Field, the Mets ballpark, and flashing an vulgar gesture to a fan, according to Major League Baseball. Apparently, the team was unwilling to pardon his gestural French.
