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

Mr. Met is in trouble for flipping off fan. But before you judge, learn about life as a mascot

NEW YORK (AP) - Even Mr. Met is frustrated with the team's disappointing start.

New York's beloved mascot flashed his "middle" finger at a fan during Wednesday night's 7-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, and the team says the employee won't work in the costume again.

A person tweeted video of the incident, which soon went viral online, and the club quickly issued a statement.

"We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee," the Mets said in an email attributed to the organization. "We do not condone this type of behavior. We are dealing with this matter internally."
