Alec Baldwin suffered the consequences of his words to friends who were directed against the stewardesses of American Airlines … for about a day.
Democrat and Chronicle reported Tuesday that Wegmans Food Markets Inc. had its holiday publicity with Baldwin after some customers complained about the actor’s misconduct and took him on an AA flight in December.
Baldwin, 53, and his mother, a lifelong shopper for Wegmans, filed an advertisement for the Rochester supermarket.
However, a few hundred calls, tweets, and emails after the MyWegmansConnect announcement was withdrawn apologized to Wegman’s spokesman, and announced plans to resubmit it.
Wegmans posted a statement on their website to explain their Baldwin rocker policy:
We regret that we discontinued Alec Baldwin’s announcements a week before the scheduled date due to a few dozen complaints. We have decided to restart the announcements with immediate effect.
Of course, many other people support MyWegmansConnect, as evidenced by the hundreds and hundreds of tweets, emails, and phone calls we receive. We like to work with Alec Baldwin and his mother Carol and we would do it again. We appreciate all the good things they said about Wegmans and we respect the good work they do for the communities.
Internet users spoke.
