Alec Baldwin really digs Zynga's Word With Friends, and an American Airlines flight attendant didn't like that so much, apparently. CNN reports that the actor was allegedly kicked off of a plane sitting on the tarmac at Los Angeles International Airport after an attendant confronted him for playing the mega popular Scrabble-style mobile game.

Alec Baldwin likes Words With Friends, the Scrabble game available on multiple platforms including the iPhone, so much that he missed a flight because of it.
On Tuesday, Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines plane at the Los Angeles International Airport and had to switch to a different flight.
It's unclear if Baldwin was actually booted off the plane because he had refused to turn off his phone, but according to his tweets, it definitely had to do something with the popular game.
"Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt," tweeted Baldwin on Tuesday.
He continued to lash out at American Airlines after the incident with a barrage of Scrabble-related jokes.
"Now, as I was kicked off this flight, the word I was playing was UNITED," tweeted Baldwin, alluding to another airline company.
Zynga's Words With Friends is a Scrabble game that lets you take turns against your opponents at your own pace. The game is known to be highly addictive, and for Baldwin, it seems, waiting a couple of hours was not an option.
