Fans of the popular Hollywood movie Home Alone 2: Lost in New York have taken to Twitter with a rather unusual demand. The netizens are calling for Trump’s cameo to be edited out from the movie in light of the US Capitol riots. Following the US Capitol riots, Twitter had also suspended Donald Trump’s Twitter account as well.
In Home Alone 2 Lost in New York, Donald Trump was seen in a brief role. In the cult classic film, the former US President was seen telling the protagonist how to get to the hotel lobby. Watch the clip from the movie below.
As another example of cancel culture, fans flooded the social media platform demanding that the scene be cut from the movie. While several fans stated that he can also be replaced by someone else in the movie, some fans suggested names like Danny Devito and Christopher Plummer to replace Trump in the film. Check out some of the tweets by netizens below.

Twitter Safety revealed on the social media platform why have they suspended Donald Trump’s account permanently. They stated that after close review of recent Tweets from the outgoing President’s account and the events it led to, they are taking action against his account. Moreover, the platform feels that Trump’s account must be suspended due to the risk of further incitement of violence.
On Wednesday, Twitter has updated its violent threats policy as well. They further stated, “Our public interest framework exists to enable the public to hear from elected officials and world leaders directly. It is built on a principle that the people have a right to hold power to account in the open”. Check out the tweets about the same below.
