In the 1990s classic, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, Macaulay Caulkin’s character accidentally gets on a flight to New York City while his family heads to Florida.

While he’s in New York, Kevin McAllister races through the Plaza Hotel lobby, which was owned by Trump at the time, and asks him “Where’s the lobby?,” to which the then 45 year old replies “Down the hall and to the left.”

The scene was cut by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation during a Christmas Eve broadcast, who told ComicBook.com that the decision was not political.

“As is often the case with features adapted for television, Home Alone 2 was edited to allow for commercial time within the format,” CBC said in a statement.

“The scene with Donald Trump was one of several that were cut from the movie as none of them were integral to the plot.

“These edits were done in 2014, when we first acquired the film and before Mr. Trump was elected president.”

But that didn’t stop people taking to social media to express their outrage.

Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr, was furious at the decision.

‘Absolutely pathetic,’ he wrote in an Instagram post.
