Lest we all start thinking that celebrities can do whatever the please, an American Airlines flight attendant has finally done what countless law enforcement officials are too afraid to do – stand up to a famous person.
On a flight out of LAX late last night, actor Alec Baldwin was forced to deplane after refusing to turn off his cellular device.
The star of NBC’s hit comedy 30 Rock, took to his Twitter to voice his outrage.
The flight attendant on American reamed me out for playing Words With Friends while we sat at the gate, not moving… No wonder American Air is bankrupt.
Baldwin’s rep added that,
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.
A few of Baldwin’s outraged fellow passengers took to their respective Twitter accounts to sound off on the events,
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.
While the details of the story are primarily based on heresy (a few passengers swear that Baldwin was actually talking on his phone and not playing WWF) I think Baldwin’s publicist summed it up best in this Tweet.
hey @American_AA: How come ok 4 other 1st class passengers 2 tweet while @alecbaldwin asked to leave while using his device?#hypocrisy.
