Oye!

During December, if you live in the Rochester, NY, you might've seen a little ad run for your local Wegman grocery store that featured the one and only Alec Baldwin. It didn't run for very long as the ad was subsequently pulled after Alec ran into a little trouble.

Yeah, you know what we're talking about. That little "situation" on American Airlines. Apparently, the Rochester-based grocery chain received "dozens of complaints" from their customers after the ad started airing shortly after Alec was "rude" to the staff of his AA flight.

Wegmans spokesperson Jo Natale adds:

"We had perhaps a couple of dozen complaints, and we take complaints from our customers seriously. We enjoyed working with Mr. Baldwin, but under the circumstances we thought it best to discontinue the ads."

It should be noted that Jo also added that the company has no plans to work with Baldwin in 2012.

Somehow, we don't feel like Alec is losing too much sleep over this.

    This story is outdated, as Wegmans have put his commercials back on. A rep said "We regret ending the Alec Baldwin holiday commercials one week earlier than planned in response to a couple of dozen complaints. We have decided to run the commercials again, effective immediately."

    i'm sure they put them back on due to major backlash at how stupid they were to pull them in the first place - any publicity is GOOD publicity

    Again. Day old recycled news that you haven't bothered to follow up on.

    I shake my head each time I visit. It's probably the only reason I do visit…to see what a fuck up this site has become.

    Waiting for consumer reaction rather than wondering how he would represent your chain?
    Priceless.
