Alec Baldwin on Saturday took to Saturday Night Live where he made fun of his recent American Airlines incident in which he flipped out on the flight crew when asked to turn off his Words With Friends game.
Playing the role of American Airlines captain Steve Rodgers he referred to himself (Alec Baldwin) as an “American Treasure.”
After the incident Baldwin tweeted:
“Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt”
In apologizing to himself during Weekend Update with Seth Meyers he said:
“It was awful, Seth, which is why it was very important for me to come here tonight and on behalf of everyone at American Airlines issue an apology to Mr. Alec Baldwin.”
Meyers then asked:
“Alec, are you sure this is the right way to handle this?”
Baldwin then answered (as pilot Rodgers):
“Mr. Baldwin is an American treasure and I am ashamed of the way he was treated.”
Baldwin then went on to explain why he slammed the lavatory door during his standoff with the crew, claiming “Words with Friends” is “frustrating.”
