‘Home Alone 2’ star Macaulay Culkin supports removing Trump’s cameo
Culkin played Kevin McAllister, who gets separated from his household and winds up in New york city. At one point, Kevin crosses courses with Trump at the Plaza Hotel. He asks Trump for instructions to the hotel’s lobby and Trump reacts by delicately pointing him in the ideal instructions.
Some fans of the film wish to eliminate Trump from that scene — and one Twitter user did simply that.
Another Twitter user proposed producing a “petition to digitally replace trump in ‘home alone 2’ with 40-year-old macaulay culkin.”
“Home Alone 2 is tarnished. It has a racist stain on it in the shape of Donald J Trump,” the petitioner composed. “I petition that he be edited out of the film and replaced with Joe Biden.”
Not the very first time Trump cut from ‘House Alone 2’
In 2019, CBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. aired the movie without Trump’s cameo hours after the President revealed to abroad service members how he was honored to be in “one of the biggest” Christmas hits.
“The scene with Donald Trump was one of several that were cut from the movie as none of them were integral to the plot,” the declaration checked out. “These edits were done in 2014 when we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected President.”
The film’s director states Trump required his method into the film
“Trump said OK. We paid the fee, but he also said, ‘The only way you can use the Plaza is if I’m in the movie,'” Columbus stated. “So we agreed to put him in the movie, and when we screened it for the first time the oddest thing happened: People cheered when Trump showed up on-screen. So I said to my editor, ‘Leave him in the movie. It’s a moment for the audience.’ But he did bully his way into the movie.”
