Posted: Updated:

UPDATE, 12/7: Zynga, the company that owns Words with Friends, issued a statement to AM New York that simply reads "Let Alec Play" on a tile board.

PREVIOUSLY:
Alec Baldwin took to Twitter Tuesday to report that he was "reamed out" by a flight attendant on American Airlines for playing the ever-awesome "Words With Friends" while the plane sat at the gate at Los Angeles International Airport.

Further Twitterers reported that the "30 Rock" actor was kicked off the flight.

Baldwin didn't confirm whether or not he was, in fact, kicked off the plane. He did, however, use the new best hashtag of the day: #nowonderamericaairisbankrupt. Baldwin has since been rebooked on a later flight from Los Angeles, TMZ reports.

American Airlines will not comment on the situation, saying "We do not divulge the names of passengers on our flights or comment on them."

The Los Angeles Times reports that a law enforcement source told the paper that Baldwin was, in fact, escorted off the flight, but police were not involved in the incident.
