The Mets mascot was caught on camera giving fans the middle finger

The New York Mets have had a rough season and it just got worse on Wednesday thanks to their own mascot, Mr. Met.

According to the New York Times, a fan filming Mr. Met late in the Mets' 7-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers caught the bulbous-headed mascot giving somebody in the stands the middle finger.

The incident came as Mr. Met was exiting the seating area down a walkway when he turned and pulled down two fingers with his left hand.

Of course, the irony in all of this is, like most cartoon characters, Mr. Met only has four fingers. So this leads to the inevitable question: Can a cartoon character give a "middle finger"?

But I digress.

The Mets issued a statement after the game apologizing for the incident and saying they "are dealing with this matter internally."
