In the wake the shocking death of pop music’s beloved Peter Pan, the late Michael Jackson, a scene featuring LaToya Jackson in Sacha Baron’s Cohen’s new comedy,Bruno, was cut from the film prior to Thursday night’s Los Angeles premiere out of respect for the family of the musical genius.

LaToya, Michael Jackson’s older sister, made an accidental cameo in Bruno, a la Paula Abdul, after she was coaxed to a Los Angeles home for an interview with the fake Austrian fashion journalist.

The scene may also end up deleted when the movie opens in wide North American release on July 10, a source at Universal Studios, which produced the film, told Access Hollywood early Friday.
