The star of the most popular Home Alone movies agrees with those who want to see President Donald Trump edited out of the first sequel.

Macaulay Culkin responded to a Twitter post from a fan who wanted to start a petition to remove Trump's scene from "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York."

"Sold," replied Culkin.

According to People, "Home Alone 2" director Chris Columbus said Trump forced his way into the film by saying scenes could only be filmed at one of his hotels if he was allowed to appear in the movie.

One fan didn't wait for the studio to officially remove Trump, they did it on their own and shared the video on social media.

Culkin also replied to that tweet with a "Bravo."

Fans of the movie series believe Trump tarnishes the film he appears in after his supporters breached security at the U.S. Capitol, causing a deadly insurrection. Many have said Trump incited the riot with his words ahead of the incident.
