Alec Baldwin Kicked Off Flight for Playing Words With Friends

Alec Baldwin is trending after the 30 Rock star was kicked off an American Airlines flight for apparently refusing to stow his smartphone prior to takeoff at LAX.

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

An airline spokesman refused to comment.

It’s the third potential PR setback for American in the past week.  Parent company AMR filed for bankruptcy, and then the airline was slapped with a lawsuit claiming bad airline food caused a passenger’s death.
