Well, you’ve got to give it to him—Alec Baldwin might be an entitled jerk prone to highly public temper tantrums, but he’s a funny and charming entitled jerk prone to highly public temper tantrums. In case you didn’t catch it last week, Baldwin was booted from an American Airlines flight because he refused to turn off his electronic device upon which he was playing Words With Friends. He then slammed a bathroom door in anger so hard that it reverberated in the cockpit, alerting the captain, who then ordered that Baldwin be removed from the plane before takeoff. Baldwin’s response? Make fun of the captain, and his airline, on Saturday Night Live.
Adopting the mustache and accent of Captain Steve Rogers, Baldwin came onto the Weekend Update portion of SNL as the captain to apologize to Baldwin. Baldwin goes on to refer to, well, Baldwin as “an American treasure, and I am ashamed at the way he was treated.” Dig the video below:
He may be a bit of a jerk, but you’ve got to admit—that’s pretty funny. At least Baldwin is able to have a sense of humor about the fact that he’s kind of a madman, you’ve got to give him that.
What do you think of the video?
