The 10-second cameo scene, which shows Trump giving Kevin McCallister (portrayed Macaulay Culkin) directions to the hotel lobby, was deleted by Canadian Broadcaster Corporation (CBC). “Excuse me, where’s the lobby?” Kevin McCallister asks Trump in the film. “Down the hall and to the left,” responds Trump.
But the edit which showed the scene without Trump didn’t go unnoticed. Audiences watching the CBC Trump-less version were not too happy.
Twitter began to meltdown after users noticed that President Trump was missing from the version of the movie airing specifically on CBC. “@CBC Cutting Trump from Home Alone 2 is disgusting & your pathetic,” tweeted one user.
What kind of state-sponsored bullshit it that? #Defund” “State-funded broadcaster @CBC deleted this scene featuring Donald Trump from their broadcast of Home Alone 2,” tweeted another.
So Canada dislikes Donald Trump so much that they’ve cut out his cameo appearance on Home Alone 2…Talk about petty 😂😂😂😂😂

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.

The CBC is making headlines for deleting Trump from Home Alone 2 just another reason to #defundCBC
