LOS ANGELES, Nov. 4 (UPI) -- A scene in which Sacha Baron Cohen poses as an Austrian fashion reporter and attempts to interview La Toya Jackson will appear on the DVD version of "Bruno."

The segment was removed from the U.S. theatrical release of the movie out of respect for Jackson and her family in the wake of Michael Jackson's death June 25.

However, People.com said the scene, in which Cohen's outrageous alter-ego Bruno chats up a seemingly unsuspecting La Toya, will appear as an extra feature on the DVD when it is released Nov. 17.

The scene shows Michael Jackson's older sister storming out of the interview after Bruno takes her cell phone, searches for Michael's phone number, then yells the number out in fake German for an assistant to write down.

"La Toya, come back. Can you at least get me Jermaine?" Bruno is seen shouting after her departing car, People.com said.
