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.

Gotta lol @ TMZ's claim of "exclusive" details AFTER every website has written about the cry baby.

Baldwin is a hack and THE biggest cry baby in Hollyweird. You know he hates himself after losing Kim. A true loo-hoo-zayer.

Baldwin is a rage driven fool who feels self entitled.

I am a STAR and I don't have to abide by the same rules as everyone else. Moreover, because I, Alec Baldwin, am a STAR I expect to be catered to and I can have a hissy fit if I want.

Another example of Hollywood behaving badly and thinking it is OK. Idiot.

Obviously none of you have read the recent report of cell phones and computers. If they interfered with aviation electronics the results of everyone in the planes at airports turning their machines off and on would have disastrous results for planes landing and taking off. This is just one more way to control you.

Another self-absorbed, self-entitled celebrity jerk who thinks the rules that apply to everyone somehow don't apply to them. If he wants to play on his stupid iPad on a flight then fly in a private plan, he's got the money.

He is such a bitchy prima dona. He's a great actor, but a mindless twit when it comes to how one should behave.

Fellow passengers say one thing and "sources close to Alec" say another...gee I think I am going to go with the passengers on this. Fat cat overly opinionated celebs really need to learn that rules apply to them.

Baldwin obviously feels he's better than everyone else. A spoiled brat who should have been thrown off the plane.

Baldwin doesn't impress anyone. Too bad he also didn't rough-up the airline pilot as well. A nice Federal offense for doing so would have been just what Santa ordered.
