Macauly Culkin caught the attention of movie watchers everywhere with the classic Home Alone. The success of the film led to a sequel of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York and in recent times there has been discussion among fans to have a scene removed.

Late last year, director Chris Columbus revealed to Insider that Donald Trump bullied his way into a cameo in the 1992 family comedy according to People. “Trump said okay,” Columbus recalled. “We paid the fee, but he also said, ‘The only way you can use the Plaza is if I’m in the movie.’ ”

The director continued, “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.’ ”

The infamous Capitol riot on January 6th has once again raised concerns of having a call to remove Trump’s cameo appearance in the sequel.

The star of the franchise Macaulay Culkin has expressed his support for this suggestion. On Wednesday, Culkin jumped on social media and responded to tweets about the cameo, including one in which it was proposed that Trump be digitally replaced with present-day Culkin:
