Part of many people’s holiday traditions is to watch holiday movies with their family. And this year, CBC, a Canadian television network, decided to air Home Alone 2: Lost in New York without including Donald Trump’s cameo.
The decision was made to include more commercials and was not politically motivated, according to the network.
“As is often the case with features adapted for television, Home Alone 2 was edited to allow for commercial time within the format,” the CBC told comicbook.com.
But despite CBC’s explanation, Trump supporters didn’t seem to be very happy with the decision. Some even took to Twitter to attack the network.

Imagine being a Canadian taxpayer having to compulsorily fund the state broadcaster CBC and then endure this level of small minded pettiness.https://t.co/PHrnRC25oI

CBC TV in Canada has cut Donald Trump’s Home Alone 2 cameo out of their broadcast.
They’re so triggered by him that they had to edit him out of the film.

Canada, this is what OUR tax dollars supports 🙄 Our state broadcaster, the CBC, removed one of the most iconic parts Home Alone because they can't handle Trump!#DefundTheCBC
