Alec Baldwin has deleted his Twitter account, which had amassed over 600,000 followers, after he was kicked off an American Airlines plane for playing the cell phone and iPad game Words with Friends.
A huge row has ensued between the 30 Rock actor and the airline, with both blaming each other for their behaviour in the lead up to the incident, which resulted in Alec having to leave the aircraft. After criticising the airline's cabin crew as "retired Catholic school gym teachers", the outspoken actor tweeted, "Let's play a game called Mass Unfollowing. I want to crash this acct and start again. But, tonight at 10 Pm, NY time, unfollow me", according to American Airlines were quick to hit back however, writing on their Facebook page, "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", adding, "Cell phones and electronic devices are allowed to be used while the aircraft is at the gate and the door is open for boarding". American Airlines also claim Baldwin slammed the plane's lavatory door extremely hard and began calling the cabin crew "inappropriate names".
At the time of his removal, he is said to have refused to turn off his device - on which he was playing the popular Scrabble-like puzzle game Words with Friends. The game has a number of celebrity fans, including Eliza Dushku and the blues guitarist John Mayer. In a further twist, the actor's publicist Matthew Hiltzik tweeted, "hey American AA: How come ok 4 other 1st class passengers 2 tweet while alecbaldwin asked to leave while using his device? hypocrisy".
