After sparking a social media backlash, according to Comicbook.com, Canadian broadcasting company CBC provided a reason for the removal, claiming the edit was “to allow for commercial time within the format.”
This is the scene that was deleted.
Per FoxNews, in the iconic holiday film, Macaulay Culkin’s character, Kevin McCallister, walks into the Plaza Hotel by himself as he is separated from his family. He runs into a passerby played by Trump and asks, “Excuse me, where’s the lobby?”
“Down the hall and to the left,” Trump responds as he towers over a young Culkin.
Many were upset with the move, calling it “petty” and “pathetic.”
CBC TV in Canada has cut Donald Trump’s Home Alone 2 cameo out of their broadcast.
They’re so triggered by him that they had to edit him out of the film.
