Alec Baldwin Kicked Off A Plane For Playing ‘Words With Friends’

“Those bastards. I had the Q!”

Let me just preface this post by saying, I’m generally amazed it didn’t involve the words “And then Alec Baldwin threw his Big Gulp full of whiskey like an angry bear, bloodthirsty for salmon. And whiskey.” Anyway, yesterday Alec was kicked off an American Airlines flight after getting into it with a flight attendant who made him stop playing Words With Friends while the plane was still sitting at the gate, not even taxiing toward the runway. Which is understandable if you’ve ever played Words and realized halfway through the game you don’t even have to use real words. I literally shot someone. TMZ reports:

We’re told Baldwin’s tweets about the incident are on point — flight attendants wanted him to shut off his cell phone in the middle of a game of “Words with Friends” … after the cabin door closed, but the plane remained at the gate.
But according to passengers … after the confrontation over his phone, Alec got up to go to the bathroom and angrily slammed the lavatory door. We’re told 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 Baldwin removed.
Sources close to Alec claim he did not slam the door, and only got up to get the flight attendant’s name so he could file a complaint — but because the fasten seat belt sign was on he was asked to leave the plane.

For what it’s worth, Alec Baldwin was immediately allowed to board another American American airlines flight probably because their parent company just filed for bankruptcy, so maybe they should’ve let a man who once tried to kill himself in front of his own daughter just to prove a point take an angry dump to cool off. But of course they didn’t, because one time ten years ago, a couple of terrorists crashed some planes into some shit, and I think we all know that started with anger poop. So ignoring how those guys completely won, let’s take comfort knowing this situation didn’t go a different route in this post-Gerard Depardieu America where true terror can come from any direction. “I was playing Cut The Rope, you bitch! Power of Bran: ACTIVATE.”

    It’s so mean, but so damn funny, I can’t tear my eyes away.

    Note to all people on airplanes, celebrities or not: Just turn your fucking phones off when they ask. Your dumbass Tweets or your stupid games aren’t important enough to delay a plane. They’re not even important enough to merit wasting the tiny amount of electricity you used to charge your phone. Turn your phone off, read a book, and stop being a self-involved prick.

    • Frank Burns

      +1 just more self-entitled, arrogant jackassery from a celebrity. When you get on the damn plane, sit the fuck down, shut the fuck up, and do what you are told.

      • Bane

        Maybe he was just trying to call his daughter to call her a selfish little pig……

      • Schmidtler

        wtf, how about the goddamned sky waitresses that get all attitudey, as if they had any kind of job skills beyond diner waitress? the plane was sitting at the gate, so what was the point of the sky waitress making it into a pissing match with a paying customer?

      • Mark

        I’d advice you to do the same wherever the hell you go!

    • Mark

      After you dumbass.

    • Mark

      I’d advice you to do the same jerkweed!!!Wherever & whenever the hell you go.

  5. Johnny P!

    Good thing he wasn’t caught playing “Angry Birds”!
    A S.W.A.T. team would’ve been called in to throw him to the ground, and take him away in chains for a full body-cavity search, followed by an F.B.I. interrogation.
    Attendant: “All I know is he was sending some graphics on his phone about using missiles of some sort!”
    Remember when flying used to be sorta fun?

  6. Carles

    What a rude, thoughtless little pig.

    Fuck Alec Baldwin.

  7. God is Black

    If the Douche Bag wants to play “Words with Friends”, fuck it. Now if he stood up and started to piss on passengers with a French accent, then I say go to 20000 ft and dump the Muther Fucker out!

  8. Rough, codes of conduct

    “Mayor BALDWIN” That has a nice ring to it, don it?

  9. He was playing against Josh Duhamel.

  10. EricLr

    This must be such an embarrassment for the Baldwin family.

  11. Do_Freebird

    He probably was in a alcohol fuel stupor and thought he was talking to his pre-teen daughter.

      Do y mean like the FAA Former Boss who was fired yesterday after being arrested yesterday for DUI , So drunk he was driving on the wrong side of the Road, or the Piolet who was arrested at he Air Port in Texas who was So drunk he was slurring and staggering while bording the flight he was to be the Captian of?

  12. LordAtama

    Just FYI, the new FAA rules specifically demand this–anything electronic must be off before the plain even taxis.

  13. So what is the deal? I’m not trying to defend this moron(I used to like him on 30 Rock, now I can think of what a selfish pussy he is), but I was on a flight and the attendant made me turn off my phone, even when I said it should be OK in “Airplane” mode. Apparently it was not OK. In my case, I turned the damn thing off. No harm no foul.

    • “Airplane mode” is not “OK” because 1) not all modes in all phones are created equal, so even if you think it’s OK, yours might still search for a signal and 2) the FAA regs say “off” – since airplane mode isn’t covered, you can tell the flight attendant it’s OK until you’re blue in the face, they still can’t let you keep it on.

  14. Am I the only one who never heard of Words With Friends before? Oh, the kids today with their handheld telephone machines…

  15. Evelyn T.Woodson

    Probbly if he had keynoted the Republican Convention in 2000, instead of DC he might now be hated so much, Of course everything the News report is accurate, Like Bush Winning the Election. I personally know there was countless Votes the Suprme Court of the US allowed in fact ordered to be omitted, I swas a sworn Election Offical in FLorida in 2000 and 2004. in both cases voter fraud got GWB in the White House, Alec Baldwin , and many other Americans tried to spare the World , what is now a very unceartin daily outlook, But the comments posted here , speaks lound and clear about the USA.

    • Frank Burns

      . . . so what you are saying is that I should vote Republican?

    • Well, if you were in fact a sworn election official in Florida in 2000, I’m beginning to understand why it was such a giant clusterfuck.

    • BPS

      So, the Republicans arranged an 11 year conspiracy, including arranging for airline rules where everyone has to turn off their phones in that situation, in order to embarrass Alec Baldwin for a couple of days. Genius!!

    • POWW

      Your spelling/typing is awful!!!!!! Plus, what does your rant have to do with Alex Baldwin getting kicked off a plane. Go find yourself a nce liberal political blog. We are trying to keep Fish on track here with his blog–not politics. Shut up

  16. Coyote

    Look at the Bright Side; At least he was not masturbating.

  17. Bernard Oflama

    AB needs to eat a salad and grow up. What a fat inconciderate jerk with an outsized ego. He is funny on 30 rock but thats because he looks like his suit is 4x too small.

  20. So wait a second – the airline industry does not have separate rules for liberal celebrity assholes?

  21. StaceFace

    Nothing is so urgently-god-damn-important you cannot shut your phone off for a couple hours. And sorry, the rule is when the cabin door closes, you shut your electronics off… that too hard for people to understand??? Self important prick,
    As for why the rule? The primary issue is that cell phones may interfere with the navigation and communication systems of the plane, possibly resulting in failure. Several airlines have reported disruptions in cabin pressure, compass function, and wireless navigation systems associated with the use of cell phones on board. Soooo….the FCC, it seems, erred on the side of caution when it enforced an outright ban on the use of radio frequency emitting devices which could potentially cause an aircraft to crash.
    (I work for an airline, sorry about the nerd boner I just sported over this lol)
    I have had to pull people off air planes for this all the time.

    • Mark

      I said it before,and I’ll say again for all you hard-of-hearing pricks!!!!!!!!!It’s a F*!kin free country!

  22. Cadillac Jack

    Hey Alec, buddy, you’re rich. It’s called a private plane, look into it.

    The air marshal should have pulled his piece and took him out. At minimal, they should put his sorry butt on the terrorist watch list.

  27. BUD

    Alic is a drunk, drug addicted douce bag & a very big dick head, What more be said. Maybe a big LOOSER in life.

  28. Orpo
