Macaulay Culkin Wants Trump Edited Out of Iconic ‘Home Alone’ Cameo

'Down the hall and to the left...'

Former child actor Macaulay Culkin expressed his support Wednesday for retroactively editing out a cameo part that President Donald Trump played in a 30-year-old movie.

Trump owned New York City’s historic Plaza Hotel from 1988 to 1992, when the landmark—situated near the southeast corner of Central Park—played a pivotal role the plot of 1991’s Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.

Culkin’s character, upon arriving at the hotel, asks, “Excuse me, where’s the lobby?”

Trump then turns toward the camera and responds “Down the hall and to the left.”

Trump was already well established as a Manhattan real-estate mogul with an ever-growing foothold in various entertainment enterprises.

He was reported to have negotiated the walk-on part and made the use of the Plaza conditional upon it.

Nonetheless, attempting to remove him from the film—the second of several sequels to late director John Hughes’ holiday classic, but the only one, thus far, to see Culkin reprise the iconic role—would be the ultimate expression of leftist cancel-culture at a time when tensions remain on edge about the draconian suppression of conservative speech.

The tinderbox of outrage over suspicious of vote fraud and egregious censorship during the 2020 election became a catalyst for last week’s massive protest at the US Capitol, where a handful of demonstrators violently clashed with Capitol Police.

It is unclear how serious the push to retroactively edit the film is, however.

Culkin has garnered a reputation for his sardonic sense of humor and erratic behavior. He appears to have been responding at random to two Twitter users who casually floated the idea of replacing Trump digitally with an adult version of the now-40-year-old ex-star.

Since Culkin’s account was not tagged in either post, he may have been actively searching for tweets related to Trump’s cameo.

But some Trump-supporting Twitter users who somehow, inexplicably escaped the social-media publisher’s anti-conservative purges, pushed back on the idea.
