The image, which featured screen legend Buster Keaton holding a Cornetto ice cream novelty, had been tagged only as a "selfie" before it was removed earlier today.
Keaton was a screen legend who thrived as an early pioneer in silent films. Keaton’s career declined after he lost his artistic independence in a strict contract with MGM, which he later called the worst choice of his career.
On Saturday, Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon tweeted a photo of himself holding up a Cornetto, which many have interpreted as a show of solidarity with Wright. His tweet, and Wright's retweet of it, remain online but Wright has removed his own addition.
Wright's fan-favorite trilogy of films -- made up of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World's End -- is collectively referred to as The Cornetto Trilogy or Three Flavours Cornetto, and the popular ice cream treats are present in each of the movies.
