We can all agree that 2020 was one heck of a year, so why not finish it off with one of the wildest conspiracy theories of all time?

Controversial broadcaster Piers Morgan is no stranger to making headlines; however, this time, it’s not because of what he’s said or tweeted, it’s because of his uncanny resemblance to a character in the holiday classic, Home Alone 2: Lost In New York, which stars Macaulay Culkin and also features a cameo by president Donald Trump.


After comparing pictures of Morgan and the pigeon lady in the Home Alone sequel, social media users everywhere have all been posing the same question:

Piers Morgan and the pigeon lady from Home Alone 2 are almost identical.

And it’s likely the reason why theories and rumors of Morgan starring in the classic holiday film started in the first place. 

“Im not saying Piers Morgan is the Pigeon Lady from Home Alone 2 but have you ever seen them in a room together at the same time," one social media user tweeted, which prompted some hilarious responses from fellow Twitter users.

“DO NOT INSULT PIGEON LADY THAT WAY!!!” one person passionately tweeted, while another said, “I don’t think the pigeon lady deserves this.”

Piers Morgan slammed rumors and theories that he’s the pigeon lady from Home Alone 2.

During a segment on Good Morning Britain on Dec. 8, the 55-year-old broadcaster denied rumors that he had a supporting role in Home Alone 2.


“Why does this keep coming around? That is not me. I am not the bag lady in Home Alone 2,” he said. 

However, some people wouldn’t let the rumor go, like Piers’ pal Erron Gordon, who tweeted a hilarious pic of the broadcaster with pigeons on him.
