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 a terrible temper so I lean towards believing the airline and not the "sources close to Alec" another phrase for his spin doctors/publicists

I semi-like Alex, but here's the deal when you're on a plane. It's like you're in basic training, except everyone is nice to you, but they're still the ones in charge. When they tell you to do something, you do it, no questions asked. Also, Alec must have been in First Class, with the huge comfy seats, probably more comfortable than most people sitting at home. Acted like a spoiled child and good for the Captain.

Ever since his rants to his daughter, his dragging on his divorce to Kim Basinger, along with his just prima-donna attitude ... this douche just thinks the world of himself. Unfortunately, he is the only one ... let's hope 30Rock gets canceled soon and then see how much he thinks of himself! IDIOT!

I'm sure there are two sides to this story but it sounds a bit like Alex didn't turn off his phone when the video came on saying to do so and, was being a bit 'obvious' in whatever he decided to do next (slam doors; confront stewardesses saying he wanted to complain) whatever it was, it's probably sure he wasn't being discreet or quiet about what he was doing. (Drawing attention to himself?) Considering the situation, maybe the pilot had reason to remove someone who 1) clearly disregarded instructions to turn off electronic devices and 2) got up when seatbelt sign was on and 3) maybe even demonstratively (he is an actor after all) slammed a door perhaps trying to 'prove' a point.
Who is Alex Baldwin? And, why does he have require special treatment on an airplane? Seems like everyone else (all of us) have to go by the rules on planes or boats that have been in place for a long time. None of us like the impositions of fastening seat-belts or having to wait to go to the toilet but who is he that he should get special treatment or privileges? Some actor? Hmmmm. I think we need to rethink this. He may be a good actor but that's not license to misbehave.

Alec Baldwin is a bloated self serving spoiled brat. Good for American Airlines. Saved alot of fuel by dropping that useless weight.

Maybe the attendant demanded he remove his corset. Then he would have to buy 2 seats.
