'F--- TRUMP': Robert De Niro bleeped at Tony Awards

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.

De Niro's expletive, also called the "F-bomb", was bleeped by the CBS television network for millions of television watchers.

After the applause subsided, De Niro reiterated his apology, this time focusing on Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and "the other people" at the Group of Seven summit which took place last weekend.

Trump is yet to respond to De Niro's latest outburst, but we can be pretty sure he probably will. "The hypocrisy of the left".

De Niro has been one of the most vocal critics of Trump, and was at his most vocal at Sunday's award show.

De Niro, a respected Oscar-winning actor, opened his introduction of rocker Bruce Springsteen with a brief quip: "I'm gonna to say one thing".

"First, I wanna say, 'f**k Trump". "It's no longer down with Trump, it's f**k Trump".

"Inarticulate, Low IQ Robert DeNiro screams "F- Trump" on The Tony Awards and gets a standing ovation".

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

A spokesperson for the United States network CBS - which was broadcasting the event - subsequently confirmed that it had bleeped the actor's curses out of the show.

The 74-year-old star attended a groundbreaking ceremony for the Nobu hotel in Toronto where he told a crowd that he was sorry for the "idiotic behavior of my president".

Robert De Niro was especially incensed at Donald Trump's treatment of the press, making reference to the media's role in publishing the Pentagon Papers.

"And after 9/11, it was very, very hard for me", Mr. Stachel continued, as his parents beamed with pride from the audience. "Good for him. I mean, it's Robert De Niro".
