Wegmans Food Markets

Alec Baldwin’s Airplane Behavior Get His Supermarket Ads Pulled

Alec Baldwin‘s ads for the supermarket chain Wegmans Food Markets have been pulled after he behaved badly on an airplane.

The actor had taped several ads for the New York-based supermarket chain after he told the chain his mother (who lives in Syracuse) is a fan of the chain. However, the chain pulled the ads (which were set to have aired over the holiday season and had previously aired during the 2010 holiday period) before airing them after news of Baldwin’s behavior on a recent flight surfaced, with a representative noting: “We had perhaps a couple of dozen complaints, and we take complaints from our customers seriously.”
Baldwin was ejected from an airplane at Los Angeles International Airport on December 6 when he refused to stop playing the game Words with Friends and turn his phone off during a flight.
Baldwin stars in “30 Rock,” with a new season of the show premiering on January 12.
