The 53-year-old “30 Rock” actor Alec Baldwin held up an entire plane full of people and was eventually kicked off his American Airlines flight yesterday after he refused to turn off his goddamn cellphone so he could play Words With Friends. Yeah, that’s right — fuck everybody else. They’re not on TV, are they? Us Magazine says:
Said managing director Michael J. Wolf: “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’s early exit may have been due to his use of electronics. “The flight attendant on American reamed me out for playing Words With Friends while we sat at the gate, not moving,” Baldwin tweeted. “No wonder American Air is bankrupt.”
Baldwin’s rep explained the ordeal, saying: “Alec was asked to leave the flight for playing Words with Friends while parked at the gate. He loves WWF so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it, but he has already boarded another AA flight.”
Wow… what a selfless display of holiday spirit right there. I thought you needed a vendetta against all the Whos down in Whoville to be that kind of Christmas asshole.
