Alec Baldwin booted from plane for refusing to quit cellphone game. Alec Baldwin was kicked off a flight in Los Angels for playing a game on his cellphone.
The “30 Rock” star was playing a game called “Words with Friends” while the plane idled at the gate on Tuesday.
Apparently, Baldwin loves the game so much he was willing to leave the plane for it. He later boarded another American Airline flight to New York.
The actor, an avid Twitter user, later tweeted, “flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing Word With Friends while we sat at the gate, not moving.”
He went on to vent that it just may be his last fight with American. Baldwin tweeted that the airline is “where Catholic gym teachers from the 1950′s find jobs as flight attendants.”
Citing customer privacy, American Airlines, currently undergoing bankruptcy proceedings, refused to comment.
