Alec Baldwin Plane Eviction Explained, By Oscar De La Hoya
Baldwin's exit did not go unnoticed, not least because the rest of the flight's passengers were also forced off the flight for a little while - among those who did so was none other than former boxing World Middleweight Champion Oscar De La Hoya. The former Golden Boy of the sport however was sympathetic towards the 53 year-old, with the Los Angeles Times reporting that he told reporters "I actually felt Alec Baldwin was turning off his devices and he just got a little angry."
Baldwin's people issued their own statement too, saying "Alec was asked to leave the flight for playing Words with Friends while parked the gate. He loves Wwf so much that he was willing to leave a plane for it, but he has already boarded another AA flight." American Airlines stuck to their guns however, tweeting "Our flight attendants followed federal safety regulations regarding electronic devices, we do our best to treat all customers with the utmost respect regardless of who they are".
