Robert De Niro Uses Profanity to Condemn Trump During Tony Awards

"It's no longer 'down with Trump.' It's 'fuck Trump!'" The audience inside Radio City Music Hall jumped to their feet to give De Niro a standing ovation while the actor pumped his fists in celebration.

De Niro was introducing singer Bruce Springsteen, who performed a monologue and the song "My Hometown" from his show, "Springsteen on Broadway". While this shocked many, the crowd at the do have gone insane.

Robert De Niro stole the show for the audience at the Tony Awards in NY on Sunday night, when he used his time onstage to once again register his disapproval of US President Donald Trump in the bluntest way possible. Before doing that, De Niro chose to open with a message for President Donald Trump, who will soon meet with Kim Jon Ung.

And he said of the actor, "it's Robert De Niro".

The national television audience did not hear what Mr. De Niro said, as the censors immediately bleeped out the curses.

He said: "Bruce, you can rock the house like nobody else and even more importantly in these perilous times, you rock the vote, always fighting for, in your own words, truth, transparency and integrity in government. Boy, do we need that now!"

When hosts Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban came back onstage, they were dressed in each other's characters in the musicals they were in - with her in a beard and him in a short waitress outfit.

British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber was also awarded the lifetime achievement award following a career spanning more than 50 years. The actor, producer, and director has also played the special counsel Robert Mueller on "Saturday Night Live".
