abaldwin012110_01_X17WM230.jpgAlec Baldwin is no longer on Twitter after getting kicked off an American Airlines flight on Tuesday for using his cell phone. The 30 Rock actor was reportedly playing the game "Words With Friends" while the plane sat at the gate.

His last Tweeted said:

    “Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt ... But, oddly, 30 Rock plays inflight on American. #theresalwaysunited ... United Airlines should buy Words With Friends ... Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950s find jobs as flight attendants.”

The airline fought back with the following message:

    "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 ... 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.

The airline went on to say:

    "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."
