This is so sad.
Unfortunately, it wasn't a fancy boot.
After being asked to turn off his cell phone in the middle of an exciting Words with Friends, Alec Baldwin went up to use the restroom.
Once the captain realized what was going on, he decided to kick Alec off the plane!
Apparently the Words with Friends game was continuing after the cabin door had been shut, before the plane left the gate.
And according to Alec insiders, he never slammed the door. Instead, he simply got up to get the flight attendant's name during a "fasten seatbelt" time.
Fortunately, Alec was able to catch the next LAX-JFK flight, but we have a feeling he won't be flying AA any time soon.
