On Tuesday, 30 Rock actor Alec Baldwin was booted from an American Airlines flight for refusing to stop playing a video game. Baldwin was kicked off the flight when he apparently refused to stop playing a game of Words With Friends after the cabin door was closed for takeoff. Now the actorâ€™s rep says his â€˜addictionâ€™ for the game is partially to blame.
Initially, Baldwin made the whole incident out to be the fault of American Airlines for overreacting to him continuing to play a video game on his cell phone as the plane was preparing for takeoff. On his Twitter feed, he posted: â€œFlight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowondermaericaairisbankruptâ€
