Trump haters called to remove President's short cameo from "Home Alone 2" but it will never happen
The idiocy is getting stronger.
After the storming of the U.S. Capitol and amid the possible impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump, many for some reason call for Hollywood to remove Donald Trump from the 1992 Christmas movie “Home Alone 2.”
This is about the short scene from the movie “Home Alone 2” in which Donald Trump appears in his cameo and gives Macaulay Culkin’s young character direction to the lobby in New York’s Plaza Hotel.
For those who might have forgotten or never saw it, here is the scene in its origin.
And when it became known that Trump could be digitally removed from the movie, it sparkled almost a nationwide rejoicing.
“I won't rest until he is removed from that scene,” social media commentator Matt Navarra tweeted.

Walt Disney Co., which owns distribution rights to the movie after buying 20th Century Studios may join the idea of punishing Trump for allegedly inciting people to storm the Capitol Building.
“What we saw was an egregious and inexcusable assault on America's most revered institution and our democracy...,” Disney said in response to the violent protest. “Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we come together as one nation – united by our shared values, including decency, kindness and respect for others.”

Sure, this is the very punishment Trump is afraid of, even more than impeachment or imprisonment.
And for Disney Co., it is a kind of hypocrisy to blame and to punish one person for the terror he didn’t personally have a hand in if to take into a count that Disney himself was an anti-Semite and supported Hitler. Just a thought, nothing more.
He should be tried, imprisoned, and digitally removed from Home Alone 2.— Andrew Hunter Murray (@andrewhunterm) January 6, 2021

This is the moment I've been waiting for. I can't wait until we remove the name Trump from every building. Tear down his legacy and everything he stands for like the ancient Egyptians did to Akhenaten.— Meaty Beefy (@Reilly_Factor) January 9, 2021
The rumor had that Trump in this scene will be replaced by actor Christopher Plummer.
But luckily soon after it was clarified that the digital removal will never happen. A few hours after the fake news was spread, Dan Scott issued a statement saying that it was a misunderstanding.
"Hi. This was not news. This was a joke. It's scary that I have to leave this here on this thread 21 hours later, but here we are. Hi. This was not news. This was a joke."
Possibly this comes out of the story when Christopher Plummer had to replace Kevin Spacey in “All The Money In The World” after he had been accused of sexual assault. This was also stupid, by the way.
