Robert De Niro Bleeped At Tony Awards For Trump F-Bomb

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

Following the G7 summit in Quebec last week, Trump lashed out on Twitter, accusing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of being "very dishonest" and "weak".

Robert De Niro definitely didn't hold back on his thoughts about President Donald Trump on Sunday at the Tony Awards in New York City.

While the CBS broadcast censors managed to stop the F-bomb from going out to people at home, some were given the full brunt of De Niro's political commentary.

De Niro went on to encourage the audience to vote in November before introducing Springsteen, whose one-man Broadway show is running until December.

Playwright Tony Kushner also shared De Niro's dismay of Trump saying it was a "the Hitler mistake" that put a "borderline psychotic narcissist in the White House".

Trudeau has not issued any public remarks about Trump's latest attacks.

"It's no longer down with Trump".

Trump and Trudeau have been engaged in a war of words over trade since the weekend's Group of Seven economic summit.

"So when De Niro finally got the call to see Springsteen play live, he said 'yes without asking any questions". The exclusive concert residency, "Springsteen on Broadway" - or as De Niro referred to it, "Jersey Boy" - features the Boss performing his music and sharing stories from his 2016 autobiography "Born to Run".

In March, he called the president an "idiot" who "lacks any sense of humanity or compassion", People reported.

"America is being run by a madman who wouldn't recognize the truth if it came inside a bucket of his beloved Colonel Sanders Fried Chicken", De Niro said.
