It's tough being a New York Mets fan these days. Apparently it's tough being the team mascot, too.
The Mets had a bad night on Wednesday, losing to the Milwaukee Brewers 7-1 at CitiField in New York.
Mr. Met, the team mascot, also had a bad night. A really bad night. He was caught on video giving some fans the birdie.
Now he's out of a job. The club fired the employee after the video of the incident went viral.
