Alec Baldwin Kicked Off Flight For Playing Words With Friends; Actor Reams AA on Twitter

by at . Comments

Alec Baldwin and American Airlines are engaged in an epic feud after the actor was removed from a flight Tuesday, then tore the airline a new one on Twitter.

All over a game of Words With Friends, too.

When Baldwin was told by flight attendants that he had to get off his phone in the middle of a game, he stormed off and slammed the bathroom door so loudly the captain of Flight 4 had to get involved, according to fellow passengers.

The cabin door was closed, but the plane remained at the gate at the time of the incident. Alec then got up to go to the can and angrily slammed the door.

The captain then himself made the call to have Baldwin removed.

Sources close to the 30 Rock star counter that he did not slam the door, and only got up to get the flight attendant's name so he could file a complaint, but since the fasten seat belt sign was on at the time he was forced off the aircraft.

Alec proceeded to board the next LAX-JFK flight.

American Airlines claims Baldwin was "extremely rude to the crew" of the first flight, "calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language."

In the wake of Baldwin's Twitter attacks on the company, AA has finally released a statement to defend its practices and call the actor a jerk basically.

AA says the following: "Since an extremely vocal customer has publicly identified himself as being removed from an American Airlines flight on Tuesday, December 6, we have elected to provide the actual facts of the matter as well as the FAA regulations which American, and all airlines, must enforce."

"All cell phones and electronic devices are allowed to be used while the aircraft is at the gate and the door is open for boarding."

"When the door is closed for departure and the seat belt light is turned on, all cell phones and electronic devices must be turned off for taxi-out and take-off."

"This passenger declined to turn off his cell phone when asked to do so at the appropriate time. The passenger ultimately stood up (with the seat belt light still on for departure) and took his phone into the plane’s lavatory."

"He slammed the lavatory door so hard, the cockpit crew heard it and became alarmed, even with the cockpit door closed and locked."

"They immediately contacted the cabin crew to check on the situation. The passenger then became extremely rude to the crew, calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language. Given the facts above, the passenger was removed from the flight and denied boarding."

In the wake of the incident, Baldwin raged about American Airlines on Twitter, then told his followers to unfollow him.

His account has since been deactivated for unknown reasons.

Nay! The airliner were being control freaks. That is what it has come to. Everyone wanting to control everyone. Baldwin may an a$$hole from hell, but only when someone start that a$$hole from hell crap with him first. It seems to me that the man can't even take a dump in peace without some jackass, who want to be famous, haggling him. Leave the man alone.

This guy's always had a screw loose, from beating up reporters who accosted his first wife after his daughter was born to beating up his wife to calling his daughter a fat pig for not returning his phone calls. Time to grow up @sshole.

Apart from the story I'm a little concerned that his beard is growing a lighter shade to his hair.

So Alec Baldwin is as big a pompous ass in real life as he is on tv? What a shock.

Again? He's always having some kind of a temper tantrum. I thought his latest girlfriend was keeping him inline. He'd lost a lot of weight, and was looking younger, and handsomer. He must have fallen off the wagon. A few years back, wasn't he talking about running for president? Thank God, there's no chance.

What? How can this be!?! Didn't this rude, classless, axe whole say he was leaving the US years ago?!? Why, this man is an imposter OR Alec Baldwin is a LIAR. If this moron would have his mouthpiece attorney tweet an address, I'm sure several ONE WAY plane tickets could be arranged.

Did they check this alcoholic for alcohol or drugs in his system? Nevertheless if that was you or me, we would be in jail right now. Why don't those terrorist Wall Street protesters protest the double standard for rich people like Alec Baldwin and regular folks?
