Baldwin Does Damage Control – Of Sorts – On 'SNL' for American Airlines Incident

Alec Baldwin rushed to the cyber-pages of The Huffington Post earlier this week to try and explain his boorish behavior on an American Airline flight.

Last night, Baldwin found another cozy spot for his damage control effort – “Saturday Night Live.”

Baldwin, a frequent and hilarious guest on the sketch comedy show, appeared as the fictional captain of the flight he was booted off of on Dec. 6. The bit, part of the show’s Weekend Update segment, found the captain singing Baldwin’s praises and apologizing for the airline’s treatment of him.

All the while, a confused Seth Meyers, the Weekend Update anchor, breaks character to tell Baldwin this approach might not be the best way to make amends for his actions.
