Twitter erupted in snorts and chortles this afternoon passengers on an LAX flight tweeted that Occupy Capitol One spokesman Alec Baldwin was kicked off their plane — causing an hour-long delay in their trip.

Brian Stelter took note here. Baldwin later tweeted that a flight attendant “reamed him out” for playing the social media word game “Words with Friends” at the gate here.

Anthropocon corrects Baldwin: “People don’t get kicked off planes for playing [Words With Friends]. They get kicked off for being an ass when asked to stop playing WWF.”

The New York Post, as always, had fun:

One observer hoped he had been making on his vow to leave the country a decade ago.

Alas, no dice.

As usual, my Tweets joking about the little incident were met with the usual, classy responses from Baldwin fans:


@michellemalkin thats a lie and you know it. can I book a manicure

As usual, Baldwin wasted no time attacking women:

An American Airlines spokesman declined comment, saying the company does not comment on “something that might or might not have happened” due to customers’ privacy concerns.

Meanwhile, Baldwin continued his criticism of the airline on Twitter.

He vowed never to fly American Airlines again.

“#theresalwaysunited,” Baldwin tweeted. “Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950’s find jobs as flight attendants.”

Models of tolerance and civility, aren’t they?
