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."

Am I the only one who thinks it is really funny that Alec was so in to his Words with Friends he stomped off to the bathroom to continue playing? HAHA! This is funny to me and yes he does have anger issues but to be honest I think he would STILL act this way even without fame so all the people who say "blah blah you think you are above the law because you are famous" I think in Alec's mind he thinks he is above the law because he is ALEC. This story to me is funny and makes him even more endearing. Watch, he will make fun of himself on SNL and you will try not to but you will Laugh your butts off! Peace out!

Wow. Typical irish-alcoholic prick. He's known for his aggressive behaviours. Remember the call to his 11 yr old daughter? Calling her a pig?? I hope he leaves 30 Rock soon. No one would miss him... *******!

Alec Baldwin is a narcissist. Plain and simple. Nobody *likes* having to turn off their cell phones or being reprimanded by flight attendants. But non-narcissistic people realize these are the rules and we have to suck it up and abide by them. Alec Baldwin, on the other hand, is appalled that anyone should 'attack' him. Flight attendants are obviously grossly ignorant for not realizing he was playing a game and not making a call. Everyone ELSE is stupid and wrong and deserving of a tongue-lashing, whereas Alec is superior in mind and morality. Or so he sees it.

For years Alec Baldwin thought his s$it don't stink,...I am always amazed how some celebrities think they are above the law AND safety. No wonder Kim Basinger got rid of years ago,....he's just a big pain in the azz,.....he's not that talented anyway,....would much raher see Basinger around,....at least she has talent.

I've worked around him behind the scenes in the ent. biz back in 2000 and he was just an a$$ to me. And don't forget about those awful things he said to his daughter on Heather Locklear's answering macheine.

Celebrities Suck    

Alec is a douche bag. Listen to the voice mail that he left his daughter...

He's going to strengthen his daughter ass out because she doesn't call him, and because she doesn't answer his calls.
He calls his 12 year old daughter a rude thoughtless pig.

Alec Baldwin is a scab. Sounds just like something he would do. Whether he likes it or not, he is subject to the same rules and regulations as any other passenger. Good for American Airlines.

This guy is a total a**hole! Just by the way he talks to his daughter and the names he called her, you know he has no respect for anyone. Dirtbag!

Anyone surprised that Alec Bladwin flew off the handle and started swearing and name calling to flight attendants he just met. After listening to the voice mail he left his own daughter in which he called her a"pig", I know American Airlines is reporting what accurately happened.
