Wegmans Flip-Flops on Alec Baldwin Move

Like Verizon recanting its terrible $2 online bill pay fee, it appears that grocery store chain Wegman’s had a change of heart as well about Alec Baldwin. The 30 Rock star formerly known as The Shadow irked some uptight Wegmans customers with his American Airlines tirade, but a day after firing Baldwin, the company released this following statement:

“We regret ending the Alec Baldwin holiday commercials one week earlier than planned in response to a couple of dozen complaints. We have decided to run the commercials again, effective immediately. Clearly, many more people support Alec, as evidenced by the hundreds and hundreds of tweets, emails, and phone calls we have received. We enjoyed working with Alec Baldwin and his mom, Carol, and would do it again. We appreciate all the kind things they have said about Wegmans and respect the good work they do for communities.”

Nobody puts Donaghy in a corner…nobody.
