Another social media user tweeted: "almost clicked to watch Home Alone yesterday, but I didn't want to see Trump, so the CBC option meets my consumer choice."

According to Comicbook.com, the CBC provided a reason for the removal, claiming the edit was "to allow for commercial time within the format."

The CBC did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.
