Alec Baldwin was removed from an American Airlines flight on Dec. 6 in LAX for playing the game Words With Friends. Baldwin and American Airlines released conflicting versions of what happened during the incident. American Airlines posted a statement to Facebook, while Baldwin (who previously attacked the behavior of the airline on Twitter) posted his version of the story via a blog on the Huffington Post.
Celebritology breaks down Baldwin’s post:
But the actor’s note is really a lament on what he describes as modern air travel’s lack of “common sense, style, and service.”
Baldwin believes he was singled out for using his phone at the gate, he writes. The actor admits the female flight attendant, who he said used “the most unpleasant of tones,” “did get the better of me.”
He also blames the decrease in service on flight attendants “who walk the aisles of an airplane with a whistle around their neck and a clipboard in their hands and they have made flying a Greyhound bus experience.”
