If you've got a smartphone, chances are you've already developed an obsession with Words With Friends, the multi-player, Scrabble-like word game. And you're not alone; everyone from my 13-year-old sister to celebrities is playing the highly-addictive game.
One actor, Alec Baldwin, likes the promo game so much that it caused him to miss an American Airlines flight. According to Mashable, "On Tuesday, Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines plane at the Los Angeles International Airport and had to switch to a different flight." The 30 Rock star reportedly turned his mobile device on after having been told to put it away. According to Baldwin, he was then "singled out ... in the most unpleasant of tones." He later tweeted about the incident, expressing displeasure: "Flight attendant on American reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving. #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt."
Yesterday, Baldwin issued an apology to his fellow passengers for any inconveniences he may have caused. However, he maintains that the airline employee was simply making an example of him. What do you think -- was Baldwin "singled out" or is he letting his celebrity get to his head?
