American Airlines:

Alec Baldwin Was Epic Jerk

American Airlines
claims Alec Baldwin was "extremely rude to the crew" on a flight out of LAX yesterday -- "calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language."

In the wake of Baldwin's Twitter attacks on the company, AA has finally released a statement ...  confirming what TMZ reported yesterday -- he was an epic jerk.

AA says, "Since an extremely vocal customer has publicly identified himself as being removed from an American Airlines flight on Tuesday, Dec. 6, we have elected to provide the actual facts of the matter as well as the FAA regulations which American, and all airlines, must enforce. Cell phones and electronic devices are allowed to be used while the aircraft is at the gate and the door is open for boarding."

"When the door is closed for departure and the seat belt light is turned on, all cell phones and electronic devices must be turned off for taxi-out and take-off."

"This passenger declined to turn off his cell phone when asked to do so at the appropriate time. The passenger ultimately stood up (with the seat belt light still on for departure) and took his phone into the plane’s lavatory. He slammed the lavatory door so hard, the cockpit crew heard it and became alarmed, even with the cockpit door closed and locked."

"They immediately contacted the cabin crew to check on the situation. The passenger was extremely rude to the crew, calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language. Given the facts above, the passenger was removed from the flight and denied boarding."

This A-HOLE is sitting in first class and can't manage to follow a simple rule like turn off your GD cell phone! It may interfere with the control tower you jackazz! Try sitting in coach you fat, bloated POS & see how the flight attendents treat your azz. You are lucky to get a can of diet coke and a bag of pretzles & you have to pay for any thing else you want.

What a spoiled, entitled, fat, bloated POS. I would be so embrassed to be tossed off a plane but I guess this clown has no shame.

Baldwin is a major jerk with a long history of anger management issues. He should've been arrested for causing such a commotion. I support a Boycott Alec Baldwin movement. American Airlines should add him to a suspected terrorist list and ban him from all further AA flights.

Flight attendants should not have to put up with jerks like Alec Baldwin. All airlines should support their employees by banning him from all flights. It's not like he's not able to rent a private jet. If they are not willing to do this, just give their flight attendants permission to show him the exit door at about 30,000 feet.
