    Alec Baldwin Pisses Off Greyhound

    70528, NEW YORK, NEW YORK - Tuesday December 6, 2011. Alec Baldwin, star of NBC hit comedy "30 Rock," arrives in New York after being thrown off his original flight due to a scuffle with American Airlines flight attendants. According to other passengers, the 53-year-old actor became disgruntled at the attendants' request to turn off his phone while in the middle of a game on the popular iPhone app 'Words with Friends' while the plane was still at the gate. After the confrontation over the phone, Baldwin was reported to have gotten up and slammed a lavatory door so loudly that the captain of the plane had to get involved and remove him from the plane.

    At this rate, Alec Baldwin will have to walk everywhere. After being tossed off an American Airlines flight Tuesday for refusing to turn off his phone, the 30 Rock star has now pissed off Greyhound. In a nonapology apology essay published Wednesday, Baldwin said airline companies have used 9/11 as an excuse to mistreat passengers. "They have made flying a Greyhound bus experience," he wrote. Greyhound CEO Dave Leach wasn't happy about that. Leach hasn't banned the actor, but invited him to take the bus from New York to Boston. If Baldwin likes the trip, Leach says he expects an apology. Meanwhile, the flight attendants' union said Friday they wanted the actor put on the airline's no-fly list while also asking that 30 Rock be banned as in-flight entertainment.
