Alec Baldwin was thrown off an American Airlines flight for playing an iPhone game, according to some reports.
Alec Baldwin, 53, was spotted sitting at LAX airport, in the midst of what appeared to be an intense telephone conversation, after his trip back to New York had been cut short.
The 30 Rock star was then seen leaving an American Airline ticket counter after re-booking another flight home.
The ordeal had seemingly raised Alec Baldwin‘s temperature, as he appeared to have sweat stains on his T-shirt.
Alec Baldwin’s obsession with a Scrabble-inspired iPhone game got him “reamed” out on an earlier AA flight yesterday.
After a flurry of reports hit Twitter, Alec Baldwin took to his own account to give his version of yesterday events.
“Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving,” Alec Baldwin tweeted yesterday afternoon, along with the hashtag, “#nowonderamericaairisbankrupt”
Before adding: “#theresalwaysunited”
Alec Baldwin then updated his flight status, writing: “Now on the 3 o’clock American flight. The flight attendants already look…..smarter.”
The actor later tweeted that he was finally on his way, with a dash of satirical humour.
“#theresalwaysunited Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950’s find jobs as flight attendants,” Alec Baldwin wrote.
Alec Baldwin was finally arrived at JFK in the evening, after what had this time appeared to be a drama-free trip home.
TMZ reports that Alec Baldwin got kicked off his earlier flight when the actor “slammed” the bathroom door so loudly the captain had to get involved.
According to passengers, after the confrontation over his iPhone, Alec Baldwin got up to go to the bathroom and angrily slammed the lavatory door and it was so loud the captain called back to flight attendants to find out what was happening.
That’s when the captain himself made the call to have Alec Baldwin removed.
Earlier, author Grant Cardone tweeted that he saw Alec Baldwin getting kicked off, and said he was “told by an AA authority” that the actor was booted because he “Didn’t have his Capitol One card and [was] Abusive to attendant.”
Alec Baldwin appears in commercials for Capitol One credit cards.
The actor has allowed his temper get the better of him in the past.
In 2007, Alec Baldwin horrendously left a voice mail for his young daughter calling her a “rude, thoughtless little pig”.
He later apologized and wrote a book inspired by the incident.
The gossip started when Michael J. Wolf, Founder and Managing Director at www.activate.com, tweeted:
“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”
One joked: “Alec Baldwin should never be allowed to fly quite frankly. His liberal politics represent a clear and present danger to the U.S.”
Before another added: “I was on the plane and yes Alec Baldwin was kicked off for grabbing 2 bags of peanuts and that is clearly an FAA violation. He may do time.”
