Frustrated Mr. Met gives fan the finger; employee removed as team mascot
NEW YORK (AP) — Even Mr. Met is frustrated with the team's disappointing start. New York's funny-looking 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 who did it 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.
