Casey Anthony's Lawyer FLIPS OUT

7/7/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony's defense lawyer had one hell of a message for reporters and spectators Tuesday ... in the form of an extended middle finger.

Attorney Cheney Mason -- who worked alongside Jose Baez -- shot the bird to a crowd outside an Orlando restaurant Tuesday while celebrating the not guilty verdict with the rest of his team.

UPDATE: The Associated Press had reported that a complaint was filed against Cheney with the Florida Bar Association over the gesture ... but the AP has now WITHDRAWN the story ... after a Bar spokesperson said the report was false.

So what!

Republicans and various other right wing rubes have been calling our President vile names, making racist posters of him in a multitude of insulting ways and shooting the middle finger at the American political process for years now.

Mason's 'bird' seems quaint and silly in comparison to the cauldron of right wing hatred that is poisoning our nation.

How professional. Hope they take his license away.

Really? So, you should be banned from your career for doing things like this? Oh wait, no one ever flips off anyone, or cusses, or farts, or gets mad, or...

How are American standards going down the toilet with so many damned tight wads still around?

Is that middle finger for little Caylee? It's pretty much what you said to her by playing a role in getting her digusting excuse for a mother off the hook. Hopefully when she gets out, someone slips her some chloraphorm, duct tapes her mouth, puts her in a trash bag and throws her in the woods like the garbage she is.

Keep in mind that before he joined the defense team and started complaining about lawyers that give opinion interviews, HE was doing doing interviews saying that she should take a plea and avoid a "circus trial" that would certainly end in a life sentence. Hmmmmmm

@Ric...Freedom of Expression...BS! Mason suppose to a professional & how makes it worst...everyone are forgetting & even defense lawyers...little Caylee is dead. I work in IT - business environment...I can't act like an a'hole Disbarred this idiot. If I was judge in this case, I would have scolded him for his behavior.

He wasn't working at the time so I don't see the problem. If it was during a case or something sure. But you can't expect -anyone- to act a certain way 24 hours a day. When I used to work customer service I would be happy to them all day long and curse their names out after hours, that's how life is. These reporters and paps were following them when they were "off the clock" celebrating a win and deserved it.

What's the problem? It's looks like he was very professional about it, just look at his form, the crossed over arm, the facial expression, I'd say he nailed it! Very professional.
