'30 Rock' star Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight last week after refusing to stop playing 'Words with Friends' - a scrabble-like game - on his iPad. Depending on who you believe, either Baldwin was extremely rude to AA staff, AA staff were extremely rude to Baldwin, or a combination of both, which results on Baldwin being booted from the plane (it was still sitting on the tarmac at the airport when the incident occurred).
Last week, Baldwin issued an apology to his fellow passengers for delaying them, but no apology was made to the airline.
Fast forward to this week, and now Baldwin has taken the mickey out of the situation on TV comedy show 'Saturday Night Live', pretending to be Captain Steve Rogers - the 'pilot' of his ill-fated plane journey.
Appearing on the Weekend Update segment of SNL with Seth Meyers, Baldwin, as Cpt. Rogers, told Meyers that the incident was "awful" and that he was on SNL to "issue an apology to Mr. Baldwin".
Pushing the apology envelope even further, 'Cpt. Rogers' also noted that Baldwin is "an American treasure, and I am ashamed at the way he was treated!"
After the AA incident last week - in which Baldwin kept all his Twitter followers updated on the unfolding events - Baldwin deleted his Twitter account. He is yet to start another account.WATCH: Baldwin kicked off flight
