Scene with LaToya Jackson cut from ‘Bruno’



Days before its U.S. premiere, the makers of “Bruno” have permanently cut a scene involving LaToya Jackson from the film. A studio spokesperson told The Wrap that the move was “out of respect for the Jackson family,” wisely sensing that this is not the best time for the sister of the deceased to be seen eating sushi off of a naked man. Although a full cut of the film has already screened in Europe, the scene with Jackson will not appear in any further screenings. ‘Bruno’ premieres July 10.
