Fans heckled Mr.Met at a Wednesday night game and a mascot could only take so much! Mr. Met turned around and flipped off the fan (even though he only has four fingers...)

The Mets released a statement on their Twitter saying:
"We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee. We do not condone this type of behavior. We are dealing with this matter internally.”
It has been reported that the actor who played Mr. Met, as many actors play him, was fired.
However, Mr. Met had the majority of Twitter watching his back! Check out some of the hilarious reactions to the video below!
Honestly, the idea of Mr. Met flipping people off at the ballpark makes me want to go to a game 20x more— Pablo S. Torre (@PabloTorre) June 1, 2017
Mr. Met only has four fingers yet he was just fired for flipping fans his middle finger. Outrageous decision. Needs better lawyers.— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) June 1, 2017
How can Mr. Met get in trouble for giving someone the middle finger IF HE DOESN'T HAVE ONE 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 pic.twitter.com/0QZd2GxQyz— Hector Diaz (@iamHectorDiaz) June 1, 2017
