  • Robert De Niro bleeped at Tony Awards for Trump F-bomb

The 74-year-old actor took aim at President Trump while introducing a performance from his friend Bruce Springsteen.

What the Oscar victor had said was, "I'm going to say this: F*** Trump".

- Ferrari Sheppard (@stopbeingfamous) June 11, 2018Hey America, Want to know why Robert De Niro said "f-k Trump" last night at the Tonys?

While the CBS broadcast censors managed to stop the F-bomb from going out to people at home, some were given the full brunt of De Niro's political commentary.

After the audience settled, De Niro got back to talking about Springsteen, who received a special Tony Award during Sunday night.

As Ruhle talked to Elise Jordan and Mark Thompson about this, she said that "I understand the frustration and outrage around the president".


A spokesperson for the U.S. network CBS - which was broadcasting the event - subsequently confirmed that it had bleeped the actor's curses out of the show. "F*ck Trump. It's no longer 'down with Trump, ' it's f*ck Trump". Two expletives earned him a standing ovation and a shower of admiration from the liberal crowd.

De Niro delivered his speech while launching a restaurant/condo/hotel development with celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa in Toronto, according to CBC news. Instead, he first took to task the USA president himself.

"Boy, do we need that now".

Once they found out, many applauded De Niro for his comments.

"I'm gonna say one thing: "F*** Trump!" he exclaimed".

Robert De Niro was especially incensed at Donald Trump's treatment of the press, making reference to the media's role in publishing the Pentagon Papers.
