Alec Baldwin, star of countless films and the television show 30 rock, was booted off an American Airlines flight last night for refusing to turn off his iPhone. Baldwin was asked five times and apparently doesn’t think the rules apply to him. According an employee who spoke with the NY Post, “He was violent, abusive and aggressive”.
Baldwin played it off on Twitter as though the American Airlines flight attendants had been overzealous in their enforcement saying, “Flight attendant on American [Airlines] reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving.”
Baldwin, unhappy with the attendants, reportedly threw a temper tantrum in the lavatory.
“He was beating the walls of the lavatory to the point that the captain called us to see what that was about. They heard it in the cockpit.”
Baldwin ultimately caught the next flight from LAX to NYC.
