Jerry Seinfeld Upset That The Mets Put Lady Gaga In His Suite

If you pay for a suite and the Mets stick Lady Gaga in it, don’t you have a valid complaint? Jerry Seinfeld thinks so. Here’s what he said about the incident, in which Ms. Gaga was removed from her seat after she yelled obscenities, stripped down to her underwear, gave people the middle finger and made out with someone.

Seinfeld says:

“This woman is a jerk. I hate her. I can’t believe they put her in my box, which I paid for.

You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?

I don’t know what these young people think or how they promote their careers. I wish her the best,” but then added, “you take one ‘A’ off of that and you’ve got gag.”

The Mets had previously apologized to Mr. Seinfeld, but we guess it didn’t take:

“We deeply regret that Jerry Seinfeld has been associated with this matter. The use of Jerry Seinfeld’s suite was unauthorized and unknown to him at the time. We made a quick decision to place Lady Gaga and her group in a private suite because of issues related to her visit.”

    If I were to go to a game, strip down to MY underwear……………….. yeah, I’d get put in Seinfeld’s box.

  2. fsnuffer says:

    As long as they use plenty of bleach to sanitize his suite, Jerry should have no issue with it.

  3. zmnatz says:

    Funny, I thought people got thrown out of games for such behavior? Special treatment? No. Why would a celebrity get special treatment?

  4. grucifer says:

    Sounds like Seinfeld, doing a Seinfeld joke. I doubt he was truly upset about this, but then again if he was, who cares?

    • scoosdad says:

      Indeed. The quote I read on Yahoo actually related it this way:

      “”This woman is a jerk, I hate her,” Seinfeld half-joked during a radio interview.”

      The printed text verbatim can be deceiving. You’d have to hear it to see how serious he was about the whole thing. Inflection and delivery by a comedian is everything.

    NO METS FOR YOU!!! COME BACK…ONE YEAR!!!

  6. digital0verdose says:

    Are we supposed to be upset at the Mets? What is this a warning about?

    • BuyerOfGoods3 says:

      About Gaga being an idiot again.

      • digital0verdose says:

        What does that have to do with The Consumerist?

        • ieatcatastrophe says:

          because seinfeld PAID for the suite. then the mets gave it to someone else. seems like a CONSUMER issue, to me.

          • digital0verdose says:

            Seems like an extremely focused issue that involved two parties in which the offended one was already aware of said issue.

            • katsuyakaiba says:

              I think he was made aware after the fact. Not to mention, she behaved badly and instead of given the treatment that the normal person would get, which means kicked out, she got rewarded for her bad behavior just because she’s famous.

              If anybody else pulled this crap, they would not be given a reward for it and sure as hell not be put in somebody else’s property.

              • SabreDC says:

                I’m willing to bet that the box is not the property of Seinfeld. It’s the property of the stadium and is leased to Seinfeld.

                • cluberti says:

                  Which probably makes it his to use during games and events within legal reason, and I’m betting them putting someone else in there may be a breach of the lease contract. Seinfeld could maybe get out of his lease now, cell-phone style! It is the Mets after all, they’re just going to tear your heart out and eat it while you watch.

                • Amnesiac85 says:

                  Let’s put someone else in your leased car after they make a scene in public.

    • Clyde Barrow says:

      Only reason that I can think of being upset with the Mets is that they handed the Tigers their arse in last night’s game. 5 – 0. Ouch!

      As for Lady Gaga, I thought Seinfeld said it right the first time, Lady Gag. As one poster said in another web site, these so-called “singers” only recently began to “make it” because of available technology because of these new vocal racks that can instantaneously correct and harmonize ANY singer’s voice regardless of how out of tune they sing. I was trained in singing in high school and my early college years after high school and it is very difficult to do the right way.

      How much do you wanna bet that she got her recording contract while on all fours? She certainly didn’t make it by driving in a rusted out van touring the U.S. and Canada suffering and making pennies to “make it big” as musician’s did back in the 70s.

  7. squirrel says:

    This story would be a lot funnier if they put Seinfeld in Gaga’s box.

  8. HannahK says:

    Eh, if he wasn’t using his box anyway, I don’t get why he needs to make it into such a big deal. The Mets were just doing what was convenient for them, if his box is so sacred he should show a little more respect to the team and give them a break. It’s just a lot easier to remove one celebrity than every photographer and crazy fan, even if she is practically begging for attention with her behavior.

    If he was trying to watch a baseball game and the press was giving him a hard time for, say, for dating a 17 year old when he was 39, he would probably appreciate being put in someone else’s empty luxury box too.

    • majortom1981 says:

      He is upset because he pays for it for the WHOLE year. ITs like me coming over and taking your car without your permission and using it then returning it the next day .

      • evnmorlo says:

        If was a rental I certainly wouldn’t care.

      • HannahK says:

        I get why he’s upset, but as someone who has had the opportunity to sit in better seats at Fenway because the people who pay for them never show up, I think it’s an overreaction. He wasn’t at the game anyway so what difference does it make?

        A better analogy would be if you have a parking spot that comes with your apartment, and you found out that your roommate let her friend park in it when you were away for the weekend.Yes, you paid for the spot for the WHOLE year, but you weren’t inconvenienced by someone else using it while you were gone, so would you complain to your landlord or the press? I hope not.

        • Azzizzi says:

          He wasn’t there, but the employees at the stadium don’t know if he gave his tickets to someone else who hasn’t showed up yet or if he plans on showing up himself.

          • Nisun says:

            On top of that… You don’t know where this woman has been or what kind of cooties she’s infecting your box with… /half-joking

        • katsuyakaiba says:

          A better analogy is that you paid for a hotel suite but one night, you crashed at a family’s house due. You come back to the hotel to find out that somebody who was loud and offensive to the other guests was allowed to stay in your suite rather than their room because that person is a V.I.P.

          • HannahK says:

            No! He didn’t go to the game. And at a hotel if you don’t show up they are actually allowed to give away your reservation so that’s a pretty terrible analogy actually.

            • Englishee Teacher says:

              Not if you reserve a room for a week and then don’t come back one night in the middle. They can’t just let someone else sleep in the room you’ve paid for, especially not knowing if you’ll show up or not.

              • SabreDC says:

                It is still a lousy analogy because for a baseball game, each game has a check-in procedure. Whereas, with the hotel in the analogy, you check in at the beginning and the middle of your stay is interrupted. Your analogy would hold more water if Seinfeld got up in the 3rd inning to take a leak, decided to grab a bite during the 4th and came back to find Gaga in his box.

                Seinfeld didn’t “check in” for that event. If you don’t check in at a hotel, they can give your room away.

    • Ben_Q2 says:

      When the Ducks started out I had glass seats. I paid for them every year and used them when I wanted to, I came and went when I wanted too. Never once was someone in my seat. On the other hand my friend had seats 2nd level (I think it was 2nd?) time and time again he found people in them. The price between the seats and where they where at had alot to to with it. No one could just walk up and put their butts in my (I did give him the ok to take them if I was not coming or till I came).

      Pointing being if you pay for something if you do not use it. It does not give them the right to sell it, give it away, or even use it without asking you 1st.

    • Polish Engineer says:

      First, he blew it off during the initial questioning, but the radio interviewer pushed him on the question so he gave an honest opinion.

      Second, if someone is being a dick at my apartment complex I don’t want management just bumping them to my room just because I’m not around. He paid for his box, and the Mets put someone else in it. What if he came late to the game and found Lady Gaga running around in her bejeweled undies in his box.

      I’d be angry if I paid out the nose for a box and an organization decided to use it for time-out for a scantily clad crazy lady who can’t behave in public.

  9. Nogard13 says:

    They should’ve just kicked her arse out, like they would if she were any other fan.

  10. smo0 says:

    I’m sure these aren’t cheap – not like he doesn’t have the money but it’s something he paid for – I’m not gonna “hate on the rich.” But if I had money and I paid for a suite and some trollop was nastying up in it – I’d complain too.

    Futhermore he has a point about the latest “batch of celebrities.” These people are trash, make your point on the stage, don’t take the friggen stage with you where ever you go. When you do – your chances of actually entertaining people at 200 bux a ticket somehow gets diminished.

    These “artists” aren’t creative, they are just f*cking crazy.

    Spending most of my childhood involved in the entertainment industry because of my relatives, then working for a few record labels when I got older taught me a lot about how to point out the bullshit people who just happened to get lucky.

    No talent jackasses.

  11. Daverson says:

    Jerry “doesn’t know what these young people think.” I guess he’s not screwing any more teenagers then.

    • grumpskeez says:

      That’s not necessarily true, he just probably doesn’t ask them their opinion on anything.

  12. aloria says:

    Watch out, or Lady Gaga could end up in your super expensive suite, too!

    Wait, no. What does a scuffle between two celebs have to do with consumer news?

  13. Applekid ┬──┬ ノ( ゜-゜ノ) says:

    And to think that, for all this time, if I just wanted attention I should have used a object-of-the-day calendar to put something on my head.

    I would more openly hope the next headdress is an anvil or rabid wolverine, but I think I fear her fans more than I fear Insane Clown Posse’s fans.

  14. xdreamwalker says:

    Any average Joe doing that would have just been kicked out. It sucks that the Mets gave her some special treatment.

  15. kaldurak says:

    And the point of this article is……what? I didn’t know that Consumerist was trying to turn us all into Celeb-u-tards.

    Wouldn’t this article be more appropriate over on the Gawker network? You know, the one the consumerist isn’t a part of anymore?

    • NarcolepticGirl says:

      I guess the point is that the Mets apologized.

      (?)

      • Applekid ┬──┬ ノ( ã‚œ-゜ノ) says:

        The Mets really should apologize for the way they’ve played Baseball for the last few years. :D

    • Wei says:

      Thousands of people pay for mets tickets. One fan acts like a jackass and gets bumped to a box seat because she is famous for acting like a jackass, while anyone else would be ejected from the property….how is this not consumerist?

  16. NarcolepticGirl says:

    I dislike both of these men.
    So I say “screw ‘em” !

  19. GuyGuidoEyesSteveDaveâ„¢ says:

    I thought Jerry was forced to suffer the game with Larry Gaga beside him. If he wasn’t there, what does he care? You reserved a seat/suite, and didn’t use it. Would he feel equally as bad if it was a kid in a wheelchair with a Orioles bumper sticker on it who was booed in the stand?

    • wingnut says:

      ——

      Maybe his suite at the ballpark is personalized? Maybe he has momentos encased in glass that he keeps there or has some other belongings that he’d rather not share with unannounced guests.

      You go from one extreme example to another after that, which is honestly not fair or even a proper basis for the argument. Gaga is controversial, no doubt about it. What she did during the game isnt akin to simply sporting the other team’s colors. Furthermore, what Gaga did was worthy of an ejection from the stadium. If it weren’t for her celebrity, that is exactly what would have happened.

      A quick thinking employee stuck her in a suite that was at the time unoccupied, not thinking of the ramifications but trying to avoid further confrontation with Gaga. (Who can blame them?)

      If a wheelchair bound child was being harassed, they would have been moved to another location, or the harassing fans in attendance would be ejected themselves. (Or as in many cases, BOTH) The child may have been moved to another spot closer to the field if possible, or even provided other perks to apologize for the poor experience – nothing of which would have guaranteed a suite in this case. I’m thinking an in-game ball, autographs or free food.

    • grumpskeez says:

      +1 for the Orioles. That’s low.

    Say it with me now “Publicity stunt”. Probably arranged weeks ago. Pop stars today do not have a bowel movement without it being choreographed by their agent and/or record label.

    You know why she didn’t strip down completely, right?

  30. kyle4 says:

    I used to be a fan of Lady GaGa until she revealed herself to be such an unoriginal, industry puppet attention whore who associates herself with Perez Hilton. It doesn’t help that he crams her down people’s throats with 15 blog posts a day, making even this mention of her annoying.

    What she did was completely inappropriate and attention seeking as per her norm. She also allegedly snuck into the Yankees dressing room after they lost and was swigging whisky and fondling her breasts. If anyone else showed up to a baseball game in nothing but a bra and panties and flipped off the crowd, they’d be ejected. Maybe like her dad said, she’s mentally ill. She also showed up at her sister’s grad in see through panties. How nice.

  31. n0th1ng says:

    So he got upset because she acted like a typical New Yorker??

  32. common_sense84 says:

    Was he in it at the same time? I fail to see the issue. Clearly the mets will give away suits to others when they are not being used. It’s double dipping. But what do you expect from baseball? All they want is money.

    • whimmel says:

      Lets say you pay to park your Cadillac in a paid lot. The owner of the lot then lends it out to a hooker while you’re not using it…

    “jerry said he didn’t care, and then started making jokes. the whole discussion turned into a bit. it was obvious that he wasn’t being serious, especially with the first quoted sentence above. “

    Oops, the consumerist and all of us got trolled.

  34. MercuryPDX says:

    He was mock offended. He’s just doing this for the material.

  35. KPS2010 says:

    I heard it this morning and it sounded like a joke while answering the guy fishing for drama. More like “oh yeah she’s such a jerk” def didn’t sound pissed just a rant

  36. Mr. Ree says:

    He probably hit on her and she shot him down with the “…your too old for me, gramps!” line and now he’s upset.
    Go jerk off, Jerry like the rest of us do…

  37. BuddyL says:

    SO – Jerry paid for his box…. wasn’t there.
    In comes Gaga, paying for a box – that was already paid for?
    I guess it’s OK now for the Mets organization to double-sell a box??
    Either way – this is stupid. Gaga has cool music, but she beddah check herself before she wrecks herself… .NO WAIT – she’s already wrecked…

    “You give people the finger and you get upgraded? Is that the world we’re living in now?”

    I gotta say, I can’t disagree with this complaint. We practically promote people into being horrible so they get special privileges, treatment or gifts they so do not deserve. What people like Miss Gaga need is to be taken down a notch. Not moved up to privately paid for notches.

  44. Pax says:

    It’s funny. Any normal person would be ARRESTED for that behavior. But a celebrity? Makes the news, gets publicity, and – at least in this case – gets a better seat.

    *vomit*

  45. CapitalC says:

    Maybe the Mets management thought it was an upgrade for Mr. Seinfeld to have “Mr.” Gaga in his box?

  46. Levk says:

    normally those are terms to get thrown out but since Lady Gaga is well famous I guess she gets upgraded how nice, I should do that in a mets game and get an upgrade or sue em because they threw me out :) fun choices

  47. Kahn Soomer says:

    Seinfeld needs to get with Gaga on this issue, not with the Mets organization.

  48. DanGarion says:

    Maybe they should have just kicked her out, like they would have with a normal person. Stop giving “celebrities” special privileges!

  49. Frau Eva says:

    “I don’t know what these young people think or how they promote their careers.”

    Come on, Grandpa Seinfeld. Didn’t Madonna do this sort of thing back in your day? Or, you know, any pop star practically ever? And shouldn’t he have issue with the Mets, not Gaga? If anyone offered me a box for any reason, I’d take it–I think we all would. The Mets are the ones who gave it up and have the responsibility of taking care of it. Really, Seinfeld is criticizing Gaga because she’s the bigger name, and everyone is ragging on her right now for publicity–whether it makes sense or not(Katy Perry saying she isn’t classy…..errrrrr, pot meet kettle).

    Also, Meg, Gaga only flipped someone off at that Mets game. The other behavior was done at other games not related to the scenario, such as the Yankees.
