Mr. Met Fired for Flipping Off Fans
You know it's bad when Mr. Met is flipping-off fans!
The New York Mets' (normally) lovable team mascot was caught on camera 'flipping-the-bird' to fans at Citi Field during the team's 7-1 loss to the Brewers on Wednesday night.
The incident was caught by a fan's smartphone and posted to Twitter:
While Mr. Met really only has a thumb and three-fingers on each hand, the 'uppercut' gesture that accompanied 'the bird' leaves no doubt as to the intent.
Needless to say, the person under the Mr. Met costume was promptly fired after the video hit social media, according to the NYDailyNews.
