Robert De Niro drops F-bomb against Trump at the Tony Awards

"So De Niro gets up and he says "F Trump" and gets a standing ovation?"

Toronto- Robert De Niro apologised to Canadians on Monday for the "idiotic behaviour of my president" a day after the actor launched an expletive at Donald Trump at the Tony awards.

The statement in response from CBS: "Mr. De Niro's comments were unscripted and unexpected".

Trump recently took to Twitter to blast Trudeau, calling him "very dishonest and weak" right after leaving the G7 summit early aboard Air Force One.

Tensions between Trump and Trudeau are at an all-time high after the two leaders disagreed over trade at the summit.

Although De Niro was heavily censored during the USA telecast, his comments weren't bleeped during the Australian telecast.

"Canada's foreign affairs minister, Chrystia Freeland, responded to the attacks by saying the country "does not believe that ad hominem attacks are a particularly appropriate or useful way to conduct our relations with other countries".

Robert De Niro, fresh off the Tony Awards stage where he attacked the USA president, and celebrity chef Nobu Matsuhisa are in Toronto today to launch a major new development.

Thompson noted that Trump says nasty things about his political opposition all the time, though Ruhle countered that the recent controversy with Samantha Bee shows that this kind of coarseness "hurts the argument" in political discourse.

De Niro was on stage to introduce Bruce Springsteen.

There may not be any angels in America, but according to De Niro there's at least one devil.

The network was airing the 2018 Tony Awards on a 10-second delay and was able to censor De Niro's comments on the live broadcast.
