Say it isn’t so, a liberal who thinks that the rules don’t apply to them.
What a shock, a liberal not listening to some one in authority and thinking that the rules do not apply to them. Such was the case with NBC 30 Rock actor Alec Baldwin aboard an American Airlines plane at LAX. Baldwin was removed from the flight for not listening to the flight attendant. The incident caused the plane to have to return to the gate and delayed the flight for other passengers. More from TMZ regarding the incident.
What a smart Alec.
Hot-head Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight this afternoon in Los Angeles because he was playing a game on his phone apparently past the point when passengers are supposed to have turned off their devices.
On his Twitter account, Baldwin wrote: “Flight attendant on American [Airlines] reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving.”
Fellow passengers stuck on the runway at Los Angeles International Airport quickly tweeted about the incident moments after it took place.
“On an AA flight at LAX. Alec Baldwin removed from the plane. We had to go back to the gate. Terrible that everyone had to wait.”
Baldwin was aboard AA Flight 4, which was delayed an hour, when the “30 Rock” star was booted for not listening to the flight attendant.
So here we have an example of some one behaving badly and not following the rules, yet Baldwin tweeted as if he was the victim.Oh and wait, he attacked women as well. I guess he must have had a flashback of leaving a message for his daughter calling her a little pig. What would have happened if Baldwin had acted so rudely to TSA agents before getting on the plane?
An American Airlines spokesman declined comment, saying the company does not comment on “something that might or might not have happened” due to customers’ privacy concerns.
Meanwhile, Baldwin continued his criticism of the airline on Twitter.
He vowed never to fly American Airlines again.
“#theresalwaysunited,” Baldwin tweeted. “Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950?s find jobs as flight attendants.”
Nice. How selfish could one be, but then again, He’s Alec Baldwin and he’s special.

UPDATE I: American Airlines fires back on Facebook of what took place to have Baldwin tossed off plane.
Since an extremely vocal customer has publicly identified himself as being removed from an American Airlines flight on Tuesday, Dec. 6, we have elected to provide the actual facts of the matter as well as the FAA regulations which American, and all airlines, must enforce. Cell phones and electronic devices are allowed to be used while the aircraft is at the gate and the door is open for boarding. When the door is closed for departure and the seat belt light is turned on, all cell phones and electronic devices must be turned off for taxi-out and take-off. This passenger declined to turn off his cell phone when asked to do so at the appropriate time. The passenger ultimately stood up (with the seat belt light still on for departure) and took his phone into the plane’s lavatory. He slammed the lavatory door so hard, the cockpit crew heard it and became alarmed, even with the cockpit door closed and locked. They immediately contacted the cabin crew to check on the situation. The passenger was extremely rude to the crew, calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language. Given the facts above, the passenger was removed from the flight and denied boarding.
