Robert De Niro Uses Profanity to Condemn Trump During Tony Awards

Robert De Niro says ‘F- Trump' onstage at Tonys gets standing ovation

"I'm gonna say one thing: Fuck Trump", De Niro said into the microphone, throwing two fists into the air. "Fuck Trump. It's no longer down with Trump".

During the show, Springsteen delivered a moving performance of his classic hit "My Hometown", basing his effort on his "Springsteen on Broadway" production.

De Niro and Springsteen visited the White House in 2009 as both were recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors that year. "And even more important in these perilous times, you rock the vote, always fighting for, in your own words, Truth, transparency, and integrity in government".

Actor Robert De Niro repeatedly declared "F- Trump" while speaking onstage at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, and promptly received a standing ovation.

The Tonys were being broadcast live on CBS in the U.S., with censors managing to bleep the actor's profane message.

Groban joked they were told to do something drastic by CBS after De Niro's remarks. "Boy, do we need that now!" "The offensive language was deleted from the broadcast".

He also described him as an "idiot" who "lacks any sense of humanity or compassion" in a speech at a Los Angeles benefit for the promotion of higher education in March, and banned him from ever eating at his chain of Nobu restaurants.

Social media erupted in reaction, with many expressing their support for the actor.
