Robert De Niro attacks Trump at Tony Awards

Bruce Springsteen gets his Tony Award 'one of the most exciting things I’ve ever experienced' Robert De Niro launches lazy F-bomb at Trump on live TV, crowd goes way too wild

It doesn't happen to him often, but Springsteen's own appearance on the Tonys was almost overshadowed by that of his presenter, actor Robert De Niro, who unleashed an epithet toward President Trump that caused the CBS censors to quickly hit the bleep button (apparently it aired as is in some other countries) and set the social media world afire.

Following the G7 summit in Quebec last week, Trump lashed out on Twitter, accusing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of being "very dishonest" and "weak". Trump advisers also ripped Trudeau, branding him a back-stabber.

De Niro made his comments at a groundbreaking ceremony for a Nobu hotel in Toronto.

However, film star De Niro may get the bulk of the questions after his big statement at Sunday night's Tony Awards.

'I have one thing to say and that's F*** Trump, ' DeNiro boomed into the microphone.

Actor Robert De Niro used the opportunity of the Tony Award ceremony to fling insults at the United States president.

The CBS television network, which was broadcasting the event live but with a delay of a few seconds, bleeped out De Niro's expletive. And then after the audience burst into laughter applause, he doubled down: "It's no longer 'down with Trump.' It's 'fuck Trump!'"

Jazz and Motown music played as guests waited for De Niro, chef Nobu Matsuhisa and other Nobu executives to arrive.

De Niro was on stage to introduce Bruce Springsteen.

Trump is yet to respond to De Niro's latest outburst, but we can be pretty sure he probably will. "Even more important in these perilous times, you rock the vote. Boy, do we need that now".

"Nobody's talking to you anymore", Gutfeld said on De Niro, paraphrasing one of the actor's most famous lines.

The White House did not immediately return a request for comment.

De Niro's negative opinions about Trump are nothing new.
