Alec Baldwin kicked off American Airlines flight for playing Words with Friends
It seems like just about everyone with a smartphone is addicted to Words with Friends, and actor Alec Baldwin is no exception to that. He’s apparently so addicted, in fact, that he wouldn’t turn his phone off while on board an American Airlines flight from Los Angeles and, as a result, Baldwin was removed from the flight.
Baldwin’s involuntary removal from the flight was documented on Twitter, first by technology firm Activate founder Michael J. Wolf. He wrote in a tweet: “On an AA flight at LAX. Alec Baldwin removed from the plane. We had to go back to the gate. Terrible that everyone had to wait.”
Baldwin made his Twitter followers aware of the situation as well, saying: “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving,”
According to Baldwin’s rep, the actor was able to get on another flight shortly after, but Baldwin wasn’t content to leave it with that. He wrote in another tweet:
“#theresalwaysunited Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950′s find jobs as flight attendants.”
Stay classy, Alec.
