Alec Baldwin

Tossed by American Airlines Captain

The last straw in the Alec Baldwin/American Airlines incident came when he "slammed" the bathroom door so loudly the captain of Flight 4 had to get involved ... according to people on the plane.

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.

Alec boarded the next LAX-JFK flight -- and we're guessing he's enjoying an intense match of 'Words' right now ... at 40,000 feet.

Alec Baldwin is awful - American Airlines could do us all a favor and fly him right out of this country - we don't want him here. He acts like a spoiled rotten baby!

Door slamming is classic passive-aggressive, sissy behavior.

I dunno if it was said already or not but the bathroom doors in airplanes always make a lot of noise when they are shut. They slam themselves shut on their own.

A great percentage of Hollywood types are either mentally handicapped or mentally challenged. They just have a singular talent. Baldwin is nothing but a child inside. A spoiled one, at that.

I don't understand why TMZ is sugarcoating the incident. Reports from people who were seated by Baldwin ( they are quoted by name!) stated he was actually talking on his phone ( while lying he was only playing a game) and then defiantly when in the bathroom and not only slamming the door but then slamming and beating the wall in the bathroom. Once confronted outside the bathroom, he was belligerent and offensive. Now, why is TMZ covering for Baldwin??? Don't get it but he doesn't deserve it.

What a complete tool.... once again. Someone really needs to pummel this guy. Wish I was sitting near him on that plane, he would need his proctologist to find his phone.

This is the same guy who stated that he'd "leave the country" if Bush were elected. So much for being a man of his convictions.

Moreover, he has a habit of deriding and demeaning the intellects of others by whom he obviously feels threatened, once referring to Sean Hannity as "you construction worker", when his own academic claim to fame is a Bachelor of Fine Arts from NYU. (Wow, everybody - look at the big brain on Alec!)

You can get a good picture of who this guy really is by listening to the tape of the phone message he left his then-twelve-year-old daughter a couple of years back. (On YouTube) Another Hollywierdo who thinks he's special.

PS Bravo to AA for throwing this Oscar Winner (LOL, not in THIS lifetime!) off the plane.

Alec: get a Hollywood job as "Mr. Pathetic." You can use the "Method Acting" school.

From what I’ve seen in other sources, the other passengers pretty much support the airline’s version of the incident….some even saying Baldwin was worse than has been generally reported.

Those criticizing the flight crew & pilot: Do you really think they (or the other passengers) have the time to have a little individual conference with each passenger on the history of why there are certain rules and whether they should apply to them in particular at that point in time, check all their electronic devices against a data-base to see which ones might be a problem and which not, and discuss who does and who doesn’t get to wander the isles based on their personal situations and preferences? The airline is in the business of transporting people in a timely & safe manner from point A to point B, not running a daycare or “Camp Feel Good”.
