But he only has four fingers.

Mr. Met got into some hot water last night as he was filmed flipping off a fan after the Mets lost to the Brewers 7-1. The New York Mets mascot who you can recognize from his baseball-shaped head was caught in the act and a video by Tony T. (@tonyt3535) triggered an immediate response from the organization who tweeted that they are dealing with the matter internally. We’re going to safely assume the person was fired.

This isn’t the first time something like this has occurred as this fan compares Matt Harvey, one of the Mets starting pitchers to Mr. Met in a “who did it better” segment. Harvey infamously tweeted out the photo after he underwent Tommy John surgery in 2014.

As public figures are always held on higher pedestals than others, we expect them to carry themselves and act in an appropriate manner, especially when they’re an example and role model for children. But as evidenced last night, that doesn’t always happen. At the same time, an argument can be made that enough is enough, maybe Mr. Met did it for the fans, maybe he gave the bird because he’s tired and frustrated of the team and its incompetent management and inability to play up to the level of talent on the roster or stay healthy. Also, maybe everyone is blowing things out of proportion, after all, Mr. Met only has four fingers on each hand, so can we really say it was the middle finger he gave?

Either way, the Mets, who are second in the NL East at 23-28, have their work cut out for them to reach the postseason and Twitter reacted to the events of last night in the realest way possible. Check out the reactions below and let us know what you think.

Finally, if this is any consolation, MLB Jesus has forgiven Mr. Met for his actions.
