New York Mets mascot gives fans the finger

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

New York's beloved mascot flashed his "middle" finger at a fan during Wednesday night's 7-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, and the team says the employee won't work in the costume again.

A person tweeted video of the incident, which soon went viral online, and the club quickly issued a statement.

"We apologize for the inappropriate action of this employee," the Mets said in a statement. "We do not condone this type of behavior. We are dealing with this matter internally."
