Last night Bruno premiered in LA, but the scene with LaToya Jackson was edited from the film after her brother’s death according to the Wall Street Journal.
During the scene, the character Bruno, played by comic Sacha Baron Cohen, creates a pretext to copy Michael Jackson’s telephone number from Ms. Jackson’s BlackBerry.
The edit appears to have been made on the fly, in the few hours between the pop star’s afternoon death and the 7:30 pm premiere.
As of now Universal does not plan on adding the scene back in before the movie comes out on July 10th.
I am so happy that both Universal and Bruno decided to respect Michael Jackson and edit the scene out.
