Lady Gaga's disrespect of Mets fans angers Seinfeld

Jerry Seinfeld has branded Lady Gaga a "jerk" for making rude gestures at New York Mets fans, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

Celebrities enjoy going to games, too. They just get better seats. See the rich and famous at the ballpark.

“This woman is a jerk. I hate her," Seinfeld joked during an interview on WFAN radio. "I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for."

Seinfeld was referring to the June 10 incident at Citi Field when the eccentric singer stripped down to her bra and bikini bottom and boorishly barraged fans and photographers with double-barrel bird-flipping during a bizarre, profanity-laced meltdown.

Gaga showed up during the fifth inning of the day game between the Mets and San Diego Padres and was furious that her front-row seats were so close to photographers covering the game.

Instead of sitting, she vanished into a lower-deck concourse — only to reappear in the seventh inning in the empty luxury box owned by Seinfeld, a big Mets fan.

"You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?," he said.

In his trademark stand-up shtick, Seinfeld added: "Why is she giving the finger? How old is the finger? How’d it even get to be the finger?"

By the time fans and photographers spotted her, she had shed her coat to reveal bedazzled undies that looked like the get-up she wore in the video for her single "Telephone."

When host Steve Somers brought up the episode during Monday night's interview, Seinfeld said: "I don't know what these young people think or how they promote their careers.

He added: "I'm not one of these all-publicity-is-good people. People talk about you need exposure — you could die of exposure.

"She is talented. I don’t know why she’s doing this stuff."

Seinfeld said he didn't know she'd been taken to his box until he arrived for the night game of the doubleheader.

Then when Somers pointed out that Gaga was at the Yankees game Friday, Seinfeld said: "Oh please, wake me when it's over."
