Kristy Swanson has a thing or two to say about “cancel culture”.
The Buffy the Vampire Slayer star, 51, took to Twitter in defence of outgoing President Donald Trump, who caught flak from movie fans suggesting his 1992 cameo in the sequel Home Alone 2: Lost in New York be digitally removed following his second impeachment last week. The film’s star, Macaulay Culkin, also joined the discussion, endorsing the Trump-less cut.
A proud Trump supporter, Swanson declared that if Trump is removed from the classic flick, which was written and produced by the late John Hughes, then she’d like her own roles in the beloved writer and director’s canon to be wiped out as well.
If Cancel Culture is really going to have Donald J. Trump removed from the John Hughes movie “Home Alone,” then in support of MY PRESIDENT, I’d like to have myself officially removed from the John Hughes’ films, “Pretty In Pink” and “Ferris Buhler’s [sic] Day Off,” tweeted Swanson, who had a small non-speaking role at the end of Pretty in Pink, and made a short classroom speech in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
Hughes, who died in 2009, wrote and produced the former film, which starred Molly Ringwald, and wrote, co-produced and directed the latter.
