Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and even Pinterest have all agreed to give Donald Trump the boot over the past several days, but it doesn’t look like the bans would stop any time soon. Home Alone fans call for Donald Trump to be edited from the classic family film
A surge of demands to exclude him from different platforms, and even from some of his appearances in well-known films, have been sent to the soon-to-be-former President of the United States, 74.
Fans also flooded since losing access to his frequently used Twitter account to demand that Trump be removed and even replaced in the notorious Home Alone franchise from his brief but an unforgettable appearance in the second film.
In the 90s and early 2000s, Trump frequently had a few brief parts in a variety of productions, back when he was still known as a businessman, such as the movies Little Rascals and Two Weeks Notice.
In Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, though, it’s his cameo that’s recently riled up fans, with many asking for him to be edited out of the scenes and substituted with someone else.
We see Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) in the 1992 film asking Trump how to get to the lobby of the hotel, and he tells him.
It’s just a brief cameo, but the movie’s fans are not impressed.
They proposed that he should be replaced by actor Christopher Plummer, who, after accusations of sexual harassment made against Spacey, famously replaced Kevin Spacey’s scenes in All The Money In The World.
Twitter permanently suspended Trump’s Twitter account because of “the risk of further incitement to violence.”
Following the events in Washington DC on Wednesday, this decision from the social media site came straight after a 12-hour ban.
The Twitter Safety account wrote: “We have permanently suspended the account due to the possibility of further incitement to violence following a close examination of recent tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the background surrounding them.”
We made it clear on Wednesday in the light of tragic events this week that further breaches of the Twitter Rules will possibly result in this very course of action.
Our framework for the public interest exists to encourage the public to hear directly from elected officials and world leaders. It is founded on the idea that individuals have the right to hold authority 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.”
