Alec Baldwin made it seem like American Airlines was out of line when they threw him off the plane for playing Words with Friends, but AA is defending their decision to have him removed. He was booted off the flight when he refused to turn off his cell phone because he was still playing his game. He ran to the bathroom and slammed the door so loud that it concerned the pilot. He was extremely rude to the staff, was using fowl language and calling them inappropriate names. The airlines released a statement yesterday that said all of those were good reason to have him escorted off of the plane. Alec started bashing the airlines on Twitter but has since deleted his account. He still felt the need to defend himself, so he wrote an essay on Huffington Post. He apologized to the other passengers, but not to the airline or the staff. He said he was singled out and made an example out of while others were still openly using their phones. And he’s blaming the bad experience on the effects of 911. He wrote, ‘September 11th was a horrific day in the airline industry, yet in the wake of that event, I believe carriers and airports have used that as an excuse to make the air travel experience as inelegant as possible.’ He also referred to the whole ordeal as a ‘Greyhound bus experience’, so now that company is also upset with him.
