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

The Superficial / December 7, 2011

“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.”
