Mr. Met, the sad excuse for a mascot that represents New York's National League baseball team, flipped a fan the bird, and the person donning the costume that night will no longer portray the mascot.
The incident occurred after the Mets lost to the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday night. Take a look:
That hardly seems like a punishment, considering the Mets' idea of a mascot is just a guy with a baseball as a head. Get it, cause the Mets play baseball?
Anyway, Mr. Met's middle finger did give plenty of fodder to Phillies fans, who were quick to point out that the Phanatic is a superior mascot:

Weird season for the Mets already. But when TMZ catches Mrs. Met and the Phillie Phanatic holding hands, it's gonna be lit.— Marc Carig (@MarcCarig) June 1, 2017
