(CNN)As President Donald Trump prepares to make his exit from the White House, fans of "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" want him to make a permanent, on-screen exit from the movie -- and its star Macaulay Culkin seems to be on board with the idea.

Culkin played Kevin McAllister, who gets separated from his family and ends up in New York. At one point, Kevin crosses paths with Trump at the Plaza Hotel. He asks Trump for directions to the hotel's lobby and Trump responds by casually pointing him in the right direction.Some fans of the movie want to remove Trump from that scene -- and one Twitter user did just that.The user posted his version the scene at the Plaza Hotel and this time Kevin is seen talking to a mute, invisible figure instead of Trump. The actor responded with a single word to the edited video: "Bravo."Another Twitter user proposed creating a "petition to digitally replace trump in 'home alone 2' with 40-year-old macaulay culkin.""Sold." Culkin wrote in response.In addition to the tweets, a petition on Change.org asks Disney to replace Trump with President-elect Joe Biden."Home Alone 2 is tarnished. It has a racist stain on it in the shape of Donald J Trump," the petitioner wrote. "I petition that he be edited out of the film and replaced with Joe Biden."

In 2019, CBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. aired the film without Trump's cameo hours after the President expressed to overseas service members how he was honored to be in "one of the biggest" Christmas hits.When CNN reached put to CBC for comment at the time, the Canadian broadcaster responded with a statement that the movie was "edited for time.""The scene with Donald Trump was one of several that were cut from the movie as none of them were integral to the plot," the statement read. "These edits were done in 2014 when we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected President."

"Home Alone 2" Director Chris Columbus told Insider last month the filmmakers had approached Trump with the idea to film in the Plaza Hotel -- which Trump owned at the time--- because they wanted to shoot in the lobby and couldn't "rebuild The Plaza on a soundstage.""Trump said OK. We paid the fee, but he also said, 'The only way you can use the Plaza is if I'm in the movie,'" Columbus said. "So we agreed to put him in the movie, and when we screened it for the first time the oddest thing happened: People cheered when Trump showed up on-screen. So I said to my editor, 'Leave him in the movie. It's a moment for the audience.' But he did bully his way into the movie."

Trump is in the movie because he told them if they wanted to film there he had to appear in the movie. Does this guy have any real friends? Lol

This is the type of behavior that built his brand. He became a rich celebrity mostly by portraying a rich celebrity. Real estate was incidental to it all. I give him credit, it worked spectacularly well for him up until about 2 weeks ago.

Well he always has WWE. What's the chances he shows up at Wrestlemania again?

I doubt this year as the heat would be too much, but man, just imagine if he did and heeled on Vince?
Any wrestler associated with Trump would get the heel heat. Who is the biggest vocal Trumper(wrestler-wise) in the WWE?

I think he’s too toxic for even Vince now. This is a publicly traded company with a board. It’ll never happen. But tonight’s MLK tribute was hilarious in the over-the-top way that they did it compared to past years.

Didn’t have a chance to watch any of it tonight, but pretty much everything is over the top at this point.  My wife watches Hallmark movies non-stop through the Christmas season.  That’s her thing, and I’ve got no issue with it other than giving her grief because the plot is generally always some variation of the same idea.  This year even she noticed (as I noticed every time I walked by) every single movie either was about a black guy/white chick or a black couple.  Really?  She’s been watching these for years, and I’ve never seen that before.  
Her other favorite show? The Bachelor.  Just started, and of course it’s a black guy this season filled with a house of white chicks.
I know I sound like creaky old racist white guy when I talk like this, but’s it’s like Hollywood just wants to social engineer their guilt trip up everyone’s ass as blatantly as possible.  
/off soapbox. I know that has nothing to do with Vince.

Vince ain't gonna bring in Trump just to try to get Jaxson Ryker over as a top heel. When they did the Battle of the Billionaires, they didn't manage to get any of the wrestlers over. I can vaguely remember that it was Umaga vs Bobby Lashley, but I have no idea without looking it up who was wrestling for whom. I really don't think Trump has it in him to put or get someone else over.

It’s even worse in tv commercials, at least in Canada. Every couple in one is mixed. Or gay. Black wife, East Indian husband, Asian kids.I have the same creaky old racist white guy thoughts about Hollywood as you do. I get they want to appeal to everyone, but it’s literally like white couples don’t exist in their world.(All the racially mixed couples are extremely affluent too, of course, and if they’re buying something or getting food the sales help is, of course, white. Lol)

All of the board games now have multi-racial game pieces.  So when I'm playing Candyland or Chutes & Ladders with my son and wife, my son is the white boy, I'm the black boy, and my wife is the Asian girl.  You can't get a game with 4 white people anymore.  If that doesn't say that police brutality is a myth, I don't know what does.  Back the Blue!

I think we all understand diversity but how long before kids that come from non diverse families start having an emotional crisis about it? I would expect snowflake kids to be all over being depressed about having two black parents instead of an East Indian mommy and a black daddy like The Tik tok says he should...

This is 100% already happening with trans kids, or kids being pushed into thinking they may be trans just because they're a girl who's a tomboy or a boy who likes to play with dolls.  You clearly have progressive parents and the media pushing 5 year olds into gender crises, and we have no idea how much this will fuck them up in 20 years.

That's awful. No kid that young should be burdened with even caring about what "gender" they might be. It literally doesn't matter to a kid that age unless it's fed to them purposely. Ridiculous.

People just don't like change. Things needed to change in Hollywood, TV and things in general for minorities and women, gays. They were not being represented. Because things were being run by old white men. I watch some old reruns of TV shows and they are so White. Unless it was a Norman Lear show. 

Hollywood has 1 Indian actor that they use regularly. Dev Patel. If they create a Indian superhero Dev Patel will playing him. lol that's why things need to be updated. That's why Marvel is debuting a Asian superhero. I think it's a good thing.

I haven't noticed it so much with the Hallmark movies (my gf likes them as well). Maybe one or two interracial couples in the ones I've seen. But I've definitely noticed it a lot more in the commercials. Usually a black dude with a white chick, although there is one with a black chick and a white dude which  kinda shocked me because that's something you hardly ever see.
