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.

What's not being reporting in this story, but reported on other news sites, is that while the incident was taking place, other passengers on the plane were tweeting about it.

Funny, no?

if he was a chick, he would have been ignored. if he was a chick, he most certainly would not have been kicked off the plain.

Alec, you want your own rules?! Get a private jet and pay the staff to kiss up.

what was this suppose to mean: "... after the cabin door closed, but the plane remained at the gate." Is this TMZ's way of rationalizing inappropriate behavior [typical]. IT DOESN'T MATTER!!! I blame celebrity justice for his delinquent behavior. Celebrities are so accustomed to receiving preferential treatment and skirting the "law"-such as it is nowadays, that they think that the rules are for the "little people" [and he's basically right] but OCCASIONALLY you run across people and entities who aren't star-struck and don't give a damn who these aholes are [I'm one of them-never see this guy or 99% of the current celebrities act. Not giving those greedy pigs in Hollywood chit.

What more would anyone expect from the coward that verbally abused his daughter? Wasn't he supposed to have moved to Canada after dubya got re-elected? Why do normal people have to put up with feces like him?
