Alec Baldwin apologizes to himself on SNL in American Airlines Sketch

Alec Baldwin decided the best course of action after all the bad publicity he’s gotten from getting kicked off an American Airlines flight and throwing a temper tantrum would be of course parodying the incident in a sketch on Saturday Night Live.

This past week that 30 Rock star was ordered off an American Airlines plane bound for New York at the request of the pilot after he refused to turn off his cell phone while the airplane was preparing for takeoff because he was playing words with friends. The actor later issued an apology but it was anything but an actual apology in fact it even angered some family members of 9/11 victims.

In a sketch Baldwin dressed up as an American Airlines pilot and issued an apology to himself, telling host Seth Meyers, “Alec Baldwin is American treasure, and I am ashamed at the way he was treated. I mean, what harm would it do to let him keep playing his game, and not any game mind you… but a word game for smart people… How dare we speak ill of the great Alec Baldwin and we can’t even take off on time.”

I’m sorry but Mr. Baldwin you need to grow up and realize that just because your celebrity your not entitled to special treatment in situations where your actions could quite possibly put others in danger. If you want to have special treatment on airplane you’re rich why not just charter your own?
