While Americans are nearing the end of Donald Trump’s term as United States President, some are going so far as to have him removed from Home Alone 2, including its star Macaulay Culkin.

Trump had a brief cameo in the 1992 sequel Home Alone 2, where Macaulay Culkin’s Kevin McAllister asks Trump, ‘where the lobby is’ and he replies, ‘Down the hall and to the left.’

Fans are now calling for Trump’s removal in the film, which has gained support from Culkin himself, as he revealed on Twitter.

One fan didn’t even ask permission, using some crude editing skills to remove both Trump’s likeness and voice from the cameo, so Culkin’s Kevin seemingly just asks where the lobby is to no one at all.

The original tweet, from Twitter user @maxschramp, went viral, with over 17K retweets and 101K likes, with Culkin chiming in, ‘Bravo.’ 

Another fan asked for a, ‘petition to digitally replace trump in ‘home alone 2’ with 40-year-old macaulay culkin,’ which Culkin replied, ‘Sold.’

Culkin is by far not the only person who wants to see the 45th President of the United States removed from the holiday classic.

Many have been taking to Twitter demanding Trump be removed, and there has also been a petition started at Change.org, but with a unique twist.

Kevin Broberg started the petition in November, asking Disney to not only remove Trump from the film, but replace him with President-Elect Joe Biden.

‘Home Alone 2 is tarnished. It has a racist stain on it in the shape of Donald J Trump. I petition that he be edited out of the film and replaced with Joe Biden,’ Broberg said.

‘Nothing ruins holiday cheer like a sexist, xenophobic, race-baiting bigot. For the sake of future generations, Trump must be replaced,’ he added.

The petition only has 185 signatures thus far, though if this or any other fan-based movements succeed, they won’t be the first to remove Trump from the film.

Last year, Donald Trump Jr. learned that his father’s cameo had been cut from the Canadian version broadcast on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Trump Jr. called the move, ‘pathetic,’ while his father tweeted,  ‘I guess Justin Trudeau doesn’t much like my making him pay up on NATO or Trade! The movie will never be the same! (just kidding).’

It was later confirmed by CBC executive Chuck Thompson that the cameo was ‘edited for time,’ and that version has aired on CBC since 2014.
