Robert De Niro Censored for Saying "F--k Trump" at the Tonys

During the 72nd annual Tony Awards, Robert De Niro, 74, stepped out stage to introduce Bruce Springsteen's performance of "My Hometown". De Niro said. "It's no longer 'down with Trump.' It's 'f*ck Trump!'" "I just want to say one thing - F*** Trump".

While top and mainstream media houses have "beeped out" De Niro's comments, the video clip of De Niro's "F-bombs" is going viral on Twitter and other social media platforms.

He did not elaborate on his comment and switched immediately to a prepared introduction of Springsteen.

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".

But the fact you need to move your phone somewhere else to listen to what someone is saying might not be the best solution. FaceTime now supports group call facility and a group of not more than 32 people can participate in the group FaceTime.

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.

However, the audience inside the venue could hear every word of De Niro's rant.

Twitter blew up nearly immediately after De Niro's comments, with a variety of reactions across the social media site.

It's the latest-and certainly the most explicit-example of an entertainer using the microphone at an awards ceremony to express derision for Trump.

The Tony Awards show was seen by some six million Americans previous year.
