Studio cuts scene featuring LaToya from Brüno

Michael Jackson's sudden death cited as reason for last-minute edit

The studio behind Sacha Baron Cohen’s Brüno has made a last-minute edit to the film to cut out a scene featuring Michael Jackson’s sister, LaToya. The deleted scene showed Cohen (as Brüno) looking for the pop star’s phone number on LaToya’s phone and reading out a number purportedly belonging to Jackson. Universal Studios has said the decision was made “out of respect for Jackson’s family.”
