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."

Proves once again that he is a Democrat who feels entitled. He thinks the rules don't apply to him and he can treat people like dirt. He is a bully and should be condemned.

One can only hope that Alec becomes the next Democrat senator from New York - or better yet, the V.P. replacement for Biden (a younger jerk replacing an older jerk).

Another selfish celebrity holding everyone else up while they satisfy their own pathetic need to, once again, be the center of attention. Excuse us all, Mr. Baldwin, for not allowing you to play your childish word game with your friends so you could be the ONLY ONE not abiding by the in-flight rules of the FAA and the airline. And stay off Twitter - God in heaven I have no idea why that forum is so popular!!!! I have no desire to hear the daily drivel of what passes for "news" or "updates" from celebs and their like. Who cares what you're doing every minute of the day???? It's ridiculous!

I like Alex Baldwin, he's funny (especially camping with canteen boy on SNL & his schwetty Christmas balls) But the guy can be an arrogant, beligerant *******. Hmmm, I wonder if he is a Scorpio?

He's constantly angry and his inner rage is insanely high. Its too bad cause he could be leading a great life but he's just so unhappy inside. Maybe he suffers for his art. Just don't cut your ear off Alex.

When will everybody learn that the 1% individuals are special and do not have to play by the rules that the 99% must follow. We must learn to let them get away with anything they want to--as Alec says--let him play!
