Macaulay Culkin Agrees That Donald Trump Should Be Digitally Removed From Home Alone 2

Donald Trump

As we wait to see if Donald Trump really will be impeached for a second time just a week prior to his leaving office, the internet has been interested in another matter to do with the outgoing POTUS that’s also quite important: whether he should be removed from Home Alone 2Trump’s walk-on part has become a major black mark against the Christmas classic in recent years and this week, folks have been calling for his cameo to be digitally edited out of the film.

And social media users have got pretty creative with the concept, too, offering up various solutions for who could be inserted into the scene (which you can see in the player above) in his place. The movement’s gained a little bit more legitimacy now as well, as Kevin McCallister himself, Macaulay Culkin, has revealed that he backs the idea of removing the evidence that he once shared a screen with Trump.

As you can see below, the actor replied to a couple of fans discussing the idea on Twitter and made it known that they have his full support.

Donald Trump Home Alone 2

Director Chris Columbus recently spilled the beans on how Trump ended up in the sequel. As Lost in New York was partially filmed in the Plaza Hotel, which he owned at the time, Trump only allowed them to shoot there if they gave him a cameo, something the filmmaker described as the future politician “bullying” his way onto the production. Columbus originally intended to cut him out of the final edit, but audiences surprisingly reacted very positively to the sequence in test screenings and so he reluctantly left it in.

As for Culkin, after a few years away from the limelight, he’s embraced his Home Alone fame quite a bit as of late, often posting hilarious references to the movies on Twitter – whether showing off his Kevin-themed face mask or delighting in making a whole generation feel old by announcing that he turned 40. There’s even talk that he could return for Disney’s upcoming reboot.

Will Donald Trump get lost from Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, though? We’ll have to wait and see, but maybe Culkin can make something happen.
