Mr Met gives fan the finger, employee done with mascot duty

"Mr. Met was being heckled all night from those fans, and security spoke to the fans about it after Mr. Met's handler spoke up", the fan, who wished to remain anonymous, told The Post.

Even Mr. Met is frustrated with the team's disappointing start.

"If it was directed towards other fans or others' actions I am not sure, but I did not say or do anything to provoke Mr. Met, nor did I say or do anything before, during, or after the video to provoke him".

Hardcore Mets fans might know that Mr. Met actually has a hell of a golf swing. His Twitter account has almost 50,000 followers. "We do not condone this type of behavior. We are dealing with this matter internally".

The Mets hope to put these incidents in the past as they host the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday afternoon in the final match of a four-game series.

Mr. Mets has been around for more than five decades, long popular with Mets fans for his oversized head with baseball seams.

New "Jersey" Guys podcast co-host Chris Swendeman couldn't recall another similar incident with an area team mascot, but said the Phillie Phanatic has had some legal trouble. Injuries to pitchers Noah Syndergaard, Jeurys Familia and home run slugger Yoenis Cespedes are just a few reasons the Mets have flailed in 2017. Earlier this month, Matt Harvey was suspended three games for failing to show up at Citi Field after going on a bender the night before, reportedly because he was distraught over photos of his presumed girlfriend, model Adriana Lima, out on the town with a former flame, Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman. After a game on May 5, the Mets tweeted a photograph of player T.J. Rivera in the clubhouse. Oh, and the Tim Tebow circus. It's not clear what was said before Mr. Met flipped the bird. Apparently, the team was unwilling to pardon his gestural French.
