Robert De Niro Says 'F-k Trump' Live at Tony Awards 2018

Hours after a profane attack on Donald Trump during a live awards show, actor Robert De Niro has apologized today to Canadians for the US president's comments about Justin Trudeau.

"It's no longer down with Trump, it's f-- Trump!"

"I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my President", Mr. De Niro said, as the crowd assembled for the event cheered.

Spicer's comments followed De Niro's address to the awards show in New York City on Sunday, which received a standing ovation.

The man behind Angels in America, legendary playwright Tony Kushner, spoke to reporters backstage about De Niro's spirited introduction for Springsteen, the AP reported.

" De Niro's comments were unscripted and unexpected", CBS said in a statement.

The expletive, known as the F-bomb, was bleeped by the CBS network for millions of television watchers at home.

It was hardly the first time that De Niro, who was born in NY and lives in the city, attacked fellow New Yorker Trump.

United States network CBS had a 10-second delay on the broadcast, which ensured that De Niro's outburst was not seen by the millions watching on terrestrial television.

In 2016, when Trump was the Republican presidential candidate, De Niro slammed him as "blatantly stupid", "totally nuts" and an "idiot". "The offensive language was deleted from the broadcast".

Prior to his speech, he cursed at US President Donald Trump.

"Our baby-in-chief - the j***-off-in-chief, I call him - has put the press under siege, ridiculing it and trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies", De Niro said.

"Boy, do we need that now". "Who's going to argue with him?"
