Kristy Swanson took one for the team when she came to the defense of out-going President Donald Trump and protested the removal of his cameo in the 1992 movie Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.
A staunch Trump supporter, the 51-year-old actress, best known for her titular role in the 1992 movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer, tweeted over the weekend, “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."

Last week, fans of Home Alone 2: Lost in New York proposed a petition to have the property mogul-turned-politician’s seven-second cameo in the Christmas movie digitally replaced with the movie’s star Macaulay Culkin as his current 40-year-old self. Culkin even gave his sign of approval by tweeting “Sold”.
Swanson had blink-and-you’ll-miss appearances (when you’re not famous, it’s not called a cameo) in two Hughes-produced films, Pretty in Pink and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. Hughes also wrote Home Alone 2.
The 51-year-old actress’s continual support for Trump — who incited the attack on Capitol Hill on Jan 6 — didn’t go down well with Trump’s critics, including some celebrities, who took to Twitter to roast Swanson.

This is weak, Kristy. I was removed from AS GOOD AS IT GETS and BAD SANTA years before Trump even THOUGHT of running for President. That’s how I support MY leader. Why do you hate America? https://t.co/R3zZ1HbrjT— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) January 16, 2021
That requires somebody caring enough about you to pay for 6 minutes of an editors time.— Jesse McLaren (@McJesse) January 17, 2021

You were in those films?— yvette nicole brown (@YNB) January 16, 2021
I don’t know or care. Her resume isn’t important. What IS, is that she’s still supporting a dude who incited a Klan riot where six people died either on the scene or a day later—one at their own hand. She’s siding with that & bemoaning the fact that he’s not in movie?! #GirlBye— yvette nicole brown (@YNB) January 17, 2021
