Alec Baldwin was kicked off his American Airlines flight from LAX this afternoon after he was caught playing a game on his cell phone shortly before takeoff.
Baldwin's rep told Us Weekly, "Alec was asked to leave the flight for playing Words with Friends while parked at the gate. He loves WWF so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it, but he has already boarded another AA flight." Ha!
Baldwin tweeted, "The flight attendant on American reamed me out for playing Words With Friends while we sat at the gate, not moving. No wonder American Air is bankrupt ... The real way is United."
Interestingly enough, almost exactly a year ago actor Josh Duhamel was kicked off a flight after refusing to turn off his BlackBerry before takeoff. What is it with celebs and airline regulations? Sheesh!
Do you think Alec owes his fellow passengers an apology for delaying takeoff?
