Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight in LAX on Tuesday. He was kicked off for playing words with friends while the plane was parked at the gate. Apparently Alec doesn’t have to play by the same rules as everyone else.
He didn’t turn off his phone when the flight attendants asked. Instead he tweeted “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt“. I didn’t even know that hastag existed.
He also went to the lavatory while the seat belt sign was on and reportedly slammed the door. He slammed the door so loud the captain called the flight attendants to find out what was going on. This is when the captain made the call to remove him from the flight.
Make sure you are not caught in a mean words with friends game during departure. You might find yourself kicked off the flight.
