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.

He has always acted like he was better than everyone else and that he doesn't have to follow the rules like other people. His ego is so big I am surprised he could even fit into a plane. This just confirms everything I have thought about him.

Why did you do it Mr. Alec Baldwin,what were you thinking? You appear to have believed you were entitled. Why do I have to turn off my electronics but not you, sir? Is this who you really are? All this time I thought the stories about you over the years were mean and exaggerated.Another beloved celebrity bites the dust.
An ex-fan.

Why actors are held in such high regard and paid astronomical sums to pretend they are someone else is laughable. Dolts want their autograph or something they owned or touched. Some of these actors act like Baldwin and the dolts still adore them. Go figure !

What an *******. He purchased a ticket which buys him a seat, not the right to change the rules. Alec you were wrong bottom line this is why you were kicked off of the plane. When the announcement was made to turn off all portable electronic devices AN ANNOUNCEMENT WAS NOT MADE TO EXCLUDE YOU!!

I think that they re picking on him because he made them angry and they want to show him a thing or two. Several large egos if you ask me. Each thiks they are the most important. The flight attendents don't have to be nice to customers any more. It is not the 50, 60 or 70's. The Air lines not longer appreciate ypur business. I hate flying and only do it whan I absolutely have to. The stews used to be pretty, well mannered and very nice to the passengars. Now they not only look UGLY, THEY ACT UGLY TOO.

I am a fan of Mr. Baldwin, think he is talented and intelligent. Apparently none of these folks who are writing have ever been treated rudely by airline (plane) attendants.They are the boss, and if anyone complains or
disagrees, they are responded to by impolite attitudes.
Even asking for a glass of water can take as long as they want. Flying is unpleasant at best, now we are treated like children by these self-important employees. Apparently it is their way or the highway. For sure!!

The plane was still at the gate and not in the air or on takeoff, they could have asked him to hurry with his cell phone and to please turn it off. I agree with Alec's comment about the flight attendant's being retired chatholic school teachers with attitudes. Nobody likes surly arrogant flight attendants like both American and Delta, horrible service.

It is hilarious that Alex Baldwin and Saturday Night "Live" in a pre-taped skit mock and belittle "baldy's" bad behaviour toward women and children. SNL laughed off his rude thoughtless little pig comments directed at his young daughter and now his childish tantrum on an American Airlines flight where he abused the female flight attendants. I guess SNL's rich 1 percenters are protecting another rich, self-absorbed, douchebag 1 percenter. I noticed N.O.W.(national organization of liberal women) looked the other way when women and children are abused. As long as Alex Baldwin isn't against abortion. He has my vote for Mayor of Douchebagville. SNL, how does Alex's a$$ taste? Very old and tart? Nice *******!
