Twitter has an alternate mile-high club for famous folks booted from airplanes: Green Day’s Billy Joe Armstrong, director Kevin Smith, and now, Alec Baldwin.
Paging Liz Lemon. You have a situation to take care of: Alec Baldwin just got kicked off an American Airlines flight, according to a tweet from a fellow passenger.
“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,” tweeted Michael Wolf.
Baldwin took to Twitter to give his side of the story just minutes ago.
Baldwin’s name is a trending topic on Twitter with many users poking fun at the situation.
“It’s true. I was the one playing Alec Baldwin in Words With Friends. Ironically, I won with the word “airplane,” joked Johanna Cerutti.
The actor has since deactivated his Twitter account. Reporter Alex Weprin posted the following response he received from@HiltzikStrat about the decision: “@alexweprin – just focused on #30Rock for now.”
On the plus side, at least now Baldwin can say he was escorted out of AA.
