A movie scene featuring Michael Jackson's sister La Toya has been cut from comedian Sasha Baron Cohen's new film 'Bruno' following the death of the singer last month.

The scene featured Baron Cohen, in character as flamboyant gay fashionista Bruno, making the late singer's sister eat sushi off naked men and an attempt by Bruno to get Michael Jackson's mobile number.

Universal Pictures said that the scene had been removed from the film "out of respect" for Jackson and his family, reports BBC News.

'Bruno' is released in UK cinemas on Friday (July 10). Click on the video below to watch the trailer.
