Jerry Seinfeld Spends a Lovely Evening Ripping into Lady Gaga

June 22, 2010

Last week, the New York Mets stadium crew moved Lady Gaga into Jerry Seinfeld’s luxury box as part of their free celebrity upgrade program. Last night, Seinfeld responded to the event on a local sports talk radio show. (Spoiler alert: He was not a fan.)

“I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for,” Seinfeld ranted. “You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?”

Seinfeld, a lifelong Mets fan, then spent several minutes attacking Lady Gaga:

You take one "a" off that, you’ve got gag. This woman is a jerk. I hate her. It’s pathetic. Why is she giving the finger? How old is the finger? Get an act. Rhinestone bikinis and giving people the finger? I don’t know why she’s doing this stuff … wake me when its over.

Oddly, Seinfeld’s diatribe is the most passion anybody associated with the Mets has shown all season.
