The Band's Visit, the Broadway musical based on an Israeli film, swept the Tony Awards on Sunday night, taking home 10 prizes - including best musical - at the ceremony in NY.

The actor has been a vocal critic of Trump, twice declaring "f-- Trump" during the Tony Awards on Sunday night and receiving a standing ovation.

"It's no longer down with Trump, it's fuck Trump!", he told the crowd.

De Niro criticized Trump again in April during the opening night of the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival calling him a liar and a "madman". His performance toward the end of the broadcast was introduced by his friend Robert De Niro, who used an expletive in the context of the president of the United States.

"I never dreamed that one day I, a Brit of all things, would be honoured with the same lifetime award that my idol won, by my peers and the true home of the musical, Broadway".

Predictably, some commenters supported De Niro's position, while others found it offensive. Although De Niro was heavily censored during the USA telecast, his comments weren't bleeped during the Australian telecast. #SpeakingTruthToPower #TuckFrump, ' he tweeted. It is how you remind the country that the most corrupt, racist and traitorous government in America's history is going down, hard, SOON.

This year's Tonys had everything: Big winners, Squidward Tentacles tap dancing, a literal tear-jerking performance by Parkland student survivors, snubs aplenty, and even a few raunchier moments that didn't make it to air (thank you, Robert De Niro).

"And again, just like in 1971, the press is distinguishing itself with courageous, exacting journalism", De Niro said.

'Ah, the tolerant Left.

Tony Shalhoub ("Monk") won for Best Actor in a Musical and Katrina Lenk for Best Actress in a Musical for their roles as, respectively, the leader of the band and the Israeli cafe owner who takes him in. So all the Socialist, Communist, Leftie supporters...,' Kevin Sorbo also slammed the actor.
