Alec Baldwin: No friendly words for airline after incident

Alec Baldwin must take his high scores very seriously, as the actor hopped off an airplane following a scuffle with a flight attendant over the phone application Words With Friends.
Baldwin boarded a flight leaving Los Angeles on Tuesday afternoon and, while the American Airlines aircraft sat idle at the gate, the ’30 Rock’ star thought he’d indulge in the app — a virtual Scrabble of sorts.
‘Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not movin,’ he tweeted.
An L.A. Now report said another passenger on the plane tweeted that Baldwin was removed from the plane. A TMZ report takes it a step further, saying the captain made the call to have him removed after he slammed a lavatory door. One thing is for sure: He switched to a United flight, and won’t stop tweeting them love.
While the general spectacle is hilarious, there could be consequences. A Federal Aviation Administration representative said that the agency could fine Baldwin if it determines he disobeyed a crew member’s orders. Baldwin would have the option to appeal the fine.
This isn’t the first incident of Baldwin taking his customer service complaints to the social media site. In early September, Baldwin wasn’t having any of his coffee-maker’s nonsense and fired off ‘Starbucks on 93 and B’way. Uptight Queen barrista named JAY has an attitude problem.’
