American Airlines: Alec Baldwin Was Epic Jerk (Twitter account "deactivated")
TMZ ^ | December 7, 2011

Posted on 12/07/2011 9:10:23 AM PST by maggief

EXCERPT

AA says, "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."

I love to hear that audio clip that Hannity plays to make fun of Alec. It’s a clip of Alec trying to host a radio show. Hilarious, he’s as dumb as a rock.

Well good news for Alec is that the airline might not be around long. They just recently filed for bankruptcy. Anyway those flight attendants can be jerks for sure. Oh this is the airline that supports Oprah. I find that funny that some of you are siding with the airline. You all must love Oprah. lol.

he’s as dumb as a rock.

Yet a multimillionaire. The only thing I find funny about Alec is his commercial about a credit card and (coincidentally) he is on a airplane and the card does not give the promises and he says, “isn't that annoying” or something like that. As far as movies he has done, I liked Malice and It's Complicated. All the rest are not great. Actually I only saw Pearl Harbor, the Hunt for Red October, and Elizabethtown. I cannot get into 30 Rock although I have seen it a few times but just can't get myself to love the show like many others.

Baldwin behaves exactly how he fantasizes the average conservative behaves.

He’s pathetic.

His ex-wife actually made that up. It stuck though. It seems like stories are made up whether republican or democratic....just ask Newt.

Siding with the airline is not the whole issue here. He refused to follow the flight instructions given by ALL airlines in preparation for departure. We all have to turn off cell phones and laptops, other electronic devices until airborne. That is the issue, not the airlines picking on poor Alec Baldwin. He is a jerk for not following the request of the stewardesses/stewards. This is always temporary, until the flight is at the proper altitude once they have taken off. Why should he think that the rules are not for him? I don’t love Oprah, but I get irritated by those who delay flight departures and cause trouble because they don’t want to follow the rules, making problems for the rest of us. He is a jerk, plain and simple. It has nothing to do with the airlines, as it could’ve been any of them. It is his behavior, and it wouldn’t have been tolerated on any of them. At least AA didn’t try to coddle him. Give them credit for that!

Too bad that some of the co-passengers have not come forward to provide us with quotes of Baldwin’s cabin rants.

He is lucky TSA did not get involved given the security concerns since he locked himself in the bathroom and distracted the pilots as they were preparing for takeoff.

I have well over a million miles with them. The bankruptcy will not see them go away. They treat our military very well. Allow them in the Admiral's club, complimentary. There are signs all over DFW from AA thanking the military for there service. They invite them to board first.

One of the best Airlines around, IMO.

I'll bet a lot of AA crew are FReepers.

I am not an anti-actor anything. If we expect actors to not express opinions of a President than what the heck are we doing on this site. We as a collective group say some nasty things towards Obama. Why can’t the lefties when their is a Republican President? I never could understand that.

Rules are for the little people, not someone important like Alec Baldwin. He makes his living pretending to be someone else. In the old days, we called that mental illness.

I just can't get past the fact that they give Oprah millions of dollars a year. I am a United Guy. My uncle retired from United and we always have done business with them. Great company. You should really give them a look.

If you get a chance check out Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross. Probably his best performance. Of course he plays a real a-hole but he’s really really good

Naps, I agree with you. That said, Alex stepped into the kitchen, if he can’t stand the heat he should go lock himself in a potty somewhere. All is fair in love and Freep.

Really wish that Red October role had been handed to Harrison Ford instead. One of my fav flicks, but becomes less so with events like this.

I’ve watched that one a few times. Essentially, ALL of them are grade-A as$holes. They are all fraudsters selling worthless land to “invest” to those gullible enough to believe them...in a bar. Kinda like what we have in the WH.

And I always felt Ed Harris would have done a better job at the lead part.

Agreed on his performance in this film. Of course, they weren’t exactly casting him against type.

I have always that heard that concerning the Hollywood types that all publicity is desired, whether it be good or bad. It keeps their name in the mix in hopes of reviving a sagging career.

We have used AA exclusively forever and have never had any problems. If they want to advertise on Oprah I really don’t care one way or the other. IMO they are no worse and probably better than the other carriers from the horror stories I’ve heard about other airlines.

I hereby move we start referring to Alec Baldwin as Fat Bastard 3. Here is the list in my mind so far:

Fat Bastard 1 - Michael Moore
Fat Bastard 2 - Rosie O’Donnell
Fat Bastard 3 - Alec Baldwin

Can I get a second...?
