John Nolte has the details, links and Twitter screen captures at Big Hollywood; Baldwin’s own tweet (also at BH) confirms that something happened, as the New York Post reports:
What a smart Alec.
Hot-head Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight this afternoon in Los Angeles because he refused to turn off his cell phone, the actor said.
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.
Michael J. Wolf, founder of the website Activate.com, tweeted at around 4:20 p.m. ET that Baldwin had been tossed from the flight.“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.”
Henry Hyde could not be reached for comment.
