Mr Mets

The NY Mets terminated the guy inside the Mr. Mets mascot costume after he made an obscene gesture toward a fan during Wednesday night’s loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The fan reported the incident to the team's front office, and the guy was sacked after the team reviewed the video.

The footage shows the man inside the costume raising his right arm and flipping one of his fingers at the fan in the stadium tunnel.

The costume has four fingers and the mascot flipped the 3rd finger at the fan.

No children witnessed the incident.

The team released a statement apologizing for the incident on Thursday.

“We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee. We do not condone this type of behavior. We are dealing with this matter internally,” the statement said.

According to Planetsportsnews.com, "a source within the Mets organization told the AP the job of playing Mr. Met changes throughout the season, and the person handling the duty Wednesday has been removed from the rotation."
