30 Rock star Alec Baldwin appears to have shut down his Twitter account following a rant against American AirlinesÂ afterÂ beingÂ kicked off a plane on TuesdayÂ . American claims Alec Baldwin violated airline rules by refusing to stop playing a game of Words With Friends on his cellphone while the plane he was on prepared for takeoff. The airline also claims he was extremely rude to the flight staff and they became “alarmed”.
After allegedly being politely asked to turn off his cellphone for takeoff, American Airlines claims Alec Baldwin stood up and stormed off into the plane’s bathroom, called the flight crew inappropriate names and used offensive language. “He slammed the lavatory door so hard, the cockpit crew heard it and became alarmed, even with the cockpit door closed and locked,” American Airlines said in a press statement. As a result, Alec Baldwin was kicked off the plane.
Baldwin took to his Twitter account after the incident to complain, posting: “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt” He went on to post that “United Airlines should buy Words With Friends” and later, “#theresalwaysunited Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950’s find jobs as flight attendants.”
Baldwin didn’t stop there. After claiming his Words With Friends username is now #theresalwaysunited, he Tweeted that “United shud hav app onboard where u can play WWF w other passengers. American shud have app where u read the new testament w flt attendants.”
After a few more random comments, Alec Baldwin told his followers that they should “play a game called Mass Unfollowing. I want to crash this acct and start again. But, tonight at 10PM, NY time, unfollow me.” He followed up at 10PM with the hashtag #massunfollow.
Finally, Baldwin posted what sounded like a farewell to this Twitter account at least. “I leave you with this…. The great Bernard Haitink and the Concertgebouw, performing the Mahler 9th, fourth movement,” Baldwin posted with a link to a concert video on YouTube.
First, the @alecbaldwinÂ Twitter feed was renamed ‘deactivated001’ and stopped having new Tweets about 15 hours ago. NowÂ the Alec Baldwin Twitter feed has completely vanished.
Whether or not Baldwin returns to @alecbaldwin or not, we’re betting he won’t be able to keep himself off Twitter for long. This guy can’t go an hour without Tweeting. If there is anything Baldwin might be addicted to more than Words With Friends, it’s Twitter!
