As Donald Trump became the first president in history to be impeached twice, Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin has publicly supported a petition to have Trump removed from Home Alone 2: Lost In New York.
The businessman and TV personality famously made the film appearance in the 1992 Home Alone sequel, Lost In New York, appearing in his hotel, and telling Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) how to find the lobby.
However, fans of the Christmas classic say that the President should have his appearance edited out of the film, due to his recent actions and the Capitol riots on 6th January 2021 in which a mob of Trump's supporters attempted to overturn his defeat, after Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election.
One Home Alone fan tweeted: "Petition to digitally replace trump in 'home alone 2' with 40-year-old macaulay culkin."
Macaulay, 40, simply replied: "Sold."

Another twitter user wasted no time and shared his edit of the famous scene. Though it does not feature 40-year-old Culkin, the fan has managed to digitally remove Trump from the scene.

The calls to remove Trump comes after the official Twitter Safety account wrote last week: "After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.
"In the context of horrific events this week, we made it clear on Wednesday that additional violations of the Twitter Rules would potentially result in this very course of action.
"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.
"However, we made it clear going back years that these accounts are not above our rules and cannot use Twitter to incite violence. We will continue to be transparent around our policies and their enforcement."
Facebook also banned Trump "indefinitely" on Thursday, with the platform's boss Mark Zuckerberg confirming the action would remain in place at least until Joe Biden is sworn in as President.
