Mr. Met Somehow Gave Mets Fans The Bird Even Though He Only Has Four Fingers
The New York Mets apologized Wednesday night after their mascot, Mr. Met, made an obscene gesture at fans at Citi Field during the team’s 7-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers.
Video on social media showed Mr. Met walking down a tunnel at the ballpark, turning around and giving the middle finger to the fans. It was unclear what, if anything, the fans said to the mascot before he made the gesture. – ESPN
Poor Mr. Met. The Mets are not great this year, dropping to 23-28 after last night’s loss. The only thing worse than being a mascot is being a mascot for a shitty team, and Mr. Met finally had enough last night. I have to imagine that Mr. Met has done this countless times over the years when fans got a little too aggressive, but rule number one of existing in today’s society is to remember that EVERYONE has a camera phone. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was video of this two second incident from every angle imaginable. Left, right, center; there’s probably a bird’s eye view from someone 100 yards away. Mr. Met really should’ve just stuck up his middle of the three fingers he has instead of doing the entire gesture. That way you can get away with the excuse that you were just saying hi.
P.S. Now that Mr. Met is in the spotlight, how long until we get an article complaining that there’s no Ms. Met? I’m going to say 3 hours.
