Alec Baldwin Booted from Plane for Playing Words with Friends

Team Alec. That game is addicting.

Alec Baldwin was kicked off of an American Airlines flight on Tuesday after attendants "reamed" him for playing Words with Friends.

Baldwin took to Twitter yesterday, claiming the flight attendant flipped out on him at LAX. The aircraft was apparently idling, still at the gate:

"Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt," Baldwin wrote.

Chances are, they asked him to turn off his cell phone, like you're supposed to do, and Alec refused to because, I mean, it's Words with Friends. And then after they "reamed" him for that, he also decided to get on Twitter. We love our smart phones.

Alec then got on another flight, where he said: "The flight attendants already look…smarter."

In case you don't know, Words with Friends is like a Scrabble game for your smart phone. Don't download it, it will take over your life. You'll know you've reached a new low when you're trying to get a fifty pointer while on the toilet.

Alec's spokesman, Matthew Hitzik, announced Alec's love for the game:

"He loves 'Words with Friends' so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it."

Other passengers on the flight say that Alec was actually talking on the phone, not just playing the game. They claim he became "violent, aggressive" toward staff. Passengers say that after the confrontation, Alec got up to go to the bathroom and then slammed the bathroom door. It was so loud the captain had to call to see what'd happened.

Considering the fact that slamming the door and locking yourself inside of a bathroom is the behavior of an angry teenage girl, I have to depart from Alec's side at this point. This is what happens when celebs try to act normal like the rest of us and take public flights instead of their private jets from LAX to New York. They just can't handle it.

Baldwin also Tweeted that it would be his last flight with American, even though they show 30 Rock for in-flight entertainment. Alec also said the airline is "where Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950's find jobs as flight attendants."

Baldwin called Words with Friends an addicting game. Makes sense, considering his behavior resembles a drug addict going through withdrawals. Gotta get off the stuff, Alec.
