Alec Baldwin: Tweeting for Sympathy, Fuming mad @AmAir! Will pizza w. extra toppings put fire out?

by Janice Taylor, Self-Help Artist (making art that invokes happy wisdom)

After reading several accounts of the now infamous Alec Baldwin story:

“Alec gets booted off an American Airlines plane parked at gate due to his ‘Words with Friend’ addiction and refusal to turn off his electronic device.”

Followed by his tweet to his 600,000 + twitter followers:

“Let’s play a game called Mass Unfollowing. I want to crash this acct and start again. But, tonight at 10PM, NY time, unfollow me.”

And knowing that Alec has recently lost a good amount of weight (leading me to believe that he, too, is an emotional eater); I wondered if he might not have been better served to hit the donut hole rather than beat out his provocative impulses on his Twitter app.

Normally, I would not suggest such blasphemy.  I am a Life and Weight Loss Success Coach.  I well know that emotional eating leads to self-deprecating self-talk, as well as an increase on the scales of injustice, which leads to more self-deprecating self-talk.

Still, for Alec, a trip to the food court was the better choice.

If Alec was seeking support, he could have easily stationed himself at the airport food court, and while chowing down with his left hand, he could have pushed the sugary crumbs off his Twitter app with his right hand and tweeted for sympathy:

Outraged! Angry! AmAir boots me off plane. EmoEating kicking in: Crullers, Donuts?  Sugar, Plain?

In need of soothing.  AmAir sends me spiraling out of control.  Burgers? Fries? with Malt or not?

Fuming mad @AmAir! Will pizza w. extra toppings put fire out?

 

I’m not saying that the rest of us should hit the donut hole.

But Alec, seriously man, I’m telling you that the next time your anger button gets ignited, instead of spewing platters of negativity into the Twitter-verse, find yourself a mammoth sized donut, tweet your dietary transgressions and move on.

Spread the word … NOT the icing!
