Employee In Mr. Met Costume Fired After He Was Caught on Camera Flipping Off Fans (VIDEO)
Last night, the New York Mets got trounced by the Milwaukee Brewers, 7-1, and no one was in a happy mood.
Following the game, a couple of fans heckled Mr. Met, the team mascot, and he wasn’t having it, so he turned around and shot the middle finger to them as he made his way into the locker room.

It was definitely handled, as it was later announced that the employee in question was fired and wouldn’t appear as Mr. Met again.
News out of Citi: the employee who went rogue last night won’t appear in Mr. Met’s costume again. But Mr. Met will be back in action today.
