Mets Mascot Gives fan The Finger

The Mets said another person was doing Mr. Met. The analogy is apt, given longstanding riffs on Mets' fans torment, right up through this apparently snake-bitten season, one replete with all the crushing injuries and tabloid drama (see: Matt Harvey's misadventures out clubbing) that's been magnified time after time by NY media, antagonistic Yankees fans and self-flagellating Mets diehards.

The video soon went viral, and the Mets organization tweeted out an apology.

"We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee". "We do not condone this type of behavior".

Hardcore Mets fans might know that Mr. Met actually has a hell of a golf swing. "We are dealing with this matter internally", the Mets said in a statement on the team website.

Mr. Met, sporting his standard oversized baseball head and white gloves, appeared to flip off fans while walking down a tunnel at Citi Field, a video shared on social media showed.

The Mets hope to put these incidents in the past as they host the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday afternoon in the final match of a four-game series.

Expected to contend for a playoff spot, the Mets are 23-28, hurt by injuries to ace starter Noah Syndergaard, closer Jeurys Familia and slugger Yoenis Cespedes. The employee will keep his job with the team, but will not be the team mascot again, according to a team official. But yeah. we get the point.

Wily Peralta (5-4), making his fourth relief outing since he was dropped from Milwaukee's rotation, allowed a single to pinch-hitter T.J. Rivera leading off the 12th. Suffice it to say, the team can not promote Tim Tebow to the big leagues soon enough.

It's unclear if fans or people in the stadium said anything to the Mets mascot before the incident took place. Apparently, the team was unwilling to pardon his gestural French.
