Alec Baldwin was removed from an American Airlines flight after refusing to turn off his iPad because of a particular intense game of Words with Friends. The flight which was bound for New York from LAX was idling at the gate when Baldwin apparently ignored request by cabin crew to turn his device off.
The "30 Rock" actor was playing a game called "Words with Friends" while the plane idled at a gate Tuesday, said Baldwin's spokesman, Matthew Hiltzik. "He loves `Words with Friends' so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it," said Hiltzik, who added that Baldwin boarded another American Airlines flight to New York.
After leaving the flight, Baldwin confirmed the incident via his twitter account, claiming that a flight attendant on America had reamed him out for playing Words with Friends while sat at the gate. He also carried on with more disparaging remarks aimed at American Airlines and its flight attendants. American Airlines declined to make any comment on the incident due to customer privacy.
