Swanson, who starred as the titular character in the 1992 Buffy The Vampire Slayer movie, blamed "cancel culture" for the petition to remove Trump's scenes, and she said if he's being erased from the flick, then she wants to do the same in director John Hughes' other films.

Social media users quickly lashed out at her words. In fact, Glee star Jane Lynch retorted, "I'm sorry, who are you?" Another told Swanson, "Just remove yourself from our memories."

Swanson laughed off the haters, referring to them as "savages" and calling one person a "psycho."

Trump's cameo in the holiday movie is quick: while Macaulay Culkin's character Kevin is in the Plaza Hotel, he asks the businessman, "Excuse me, where's the lobby?" Trump then points him in the right direction.

Another Twitter user wrote, "petition to digitally replace trump in ‘home alone 2’ with 40-year-old macaulay culkin," to which the actor responded, "Sold."

According to director Christopher Columbus, Trump appeared in the movie because they wanted to film at the Plaza, a building which he owned at the time.

"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 recalled. "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."
