Alec Baldwin: Flight Attendant

REAMED ME

Over 'Words with Friends'

12/6/2011 2:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF



Alec Baldwin claims an American Airlines flight attendant WENT BALLISTIC on him on a plane at LAX moments ago ... all because he was playing "Words with Friends" while the aircraft was still at the gate.

Baldwin just tweeted about the situation ... saying, "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt."

It's unclear if Baldwin was removed from the plane or left voluntarily -- but he DID get off the plane and was moved to another flight.

FYI -- "Words with Friends" is basically Scrabble for your smart phone ... and it's SUPER addicting.

Alec just tweeted again, claiming he has just boarded a 3pm flight on American -- adding, "The flight attendants already look.....smarter."

The attendant would have let him stay but he was probably cheating using the words with cheats for friends app.

alec baldwin may be a mess, but i'm gonna have to say that the flight attendants in domestic flights in the states are old grumpy hags, and despite what alec baldwin's attitude towards the situation induced, it was probably the nasty flight attendants nasty attitude that caused the whole thing

Finally, something happens to him that he really deserves! Another celebrity that thinks he is above rules and requests of those in authority. Way to go AA.

He's right and you're wrong. The rules only apply to us little people and this "star" feels they don't apply to him.

I see a lot of Alec Baldwin's tweets over at The Daily Trawler, and, well, let's just say that his perception of events might be a little off-center from most people's.

If this was while they were at the gate, that it happened. The aircraft would not have had to "return" to the gate. It has also been claimed that he would not turn off the iPad after being asked to by the attendant as they prepared for takeoff,therfore requiring the return to gate. Some people act like they dont have to abide by the same rules as everyone else.

Alec Baldwin is such a pompous a-hole. He just oozes a-holiness. Smug c*nt. When he left the plane, the travelers all looked smarter. #nowonderSterphenBaldwinfiledbankrupt

Flight attendants have used 9/11 to become little Nazis. I figure this one said to itself, "Ooo, bigshot Alec Baldwin...I'm gonna bust his chops, 'cause I can, then I can brag about it later." Then again, A.B. is an a-hole, right? So maybe let's just call it a draw.
