Los Angeles [US], January 15 (ANI): "Home Alone" actor Macaulay Culkin has approved calls on social media to have President Donald Trump's cameo in the 1992 film "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" edited out after the President was impeached for a second time by the House of Representatives on Wednesday.
"(A)petition to digitally replace Trump in 'Home Alone 2' with 40-year-old Macaulay Culkin," wrote a user on Twitter to which the 'Home Alone' actor replied, "Sold."A few moments later Culkin also applauded another user who posted a video of Trump cameo's edited out of the film.
"Due to popular request I have removed trump from Home Alone," the user tweeted along with the clip," Culkin lauded the effort and said, "Bravo."Trump's cameo in the movie comes to give directions to Kevin -- Culkin's character ---to go to the lobby. "Down the hall and to the left," said Trump in the film.
Actor Matt Damon said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter -- as quoted by The Hill -- in 2017 that Trump would allow films to be shot in his buildings as long as he got a part in the project.
"The deal was that if you wanted to shoot in one of his buildings, you had to write him in a part. [Director] Martin Brest had to write something in Scent of a Woman -- and the whole crew was in on it," he said.
"You have to waste an hour of your day with a bullshit shot: Donald Trump walks in and Al Pacino's like, 'Hello, Mr. Trump!' -- you had to call him by name -- and then he exits," he added and continued, You waste a little time so that you can get the permit, and then you can cut the scene out. But I guess in Home Alone 2 they left it in."Culkin's tweets came hours before Trump was impeached by the House on a charge of willfully inciting violence against the US government after a mob of his supporters stormed the Capitol building and clashed with law enforcement in a riot last week that left five people dead.
