De Niro hurls F­bomb at Trump on live TV

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - HTCITY ENTERTAINMENT - AGEN­CIES

Os­car-win­ning ac­tor Robert De Niro is­sued an ex­ple­tive-laden de­nun­ci­a­tion of US Pres­i­dent Donald Trump dur­ing the live tele­vi­sion broad­cast of the Tony Awards cer­e­mony on Sun­day. De Niro ap­peared on stage at New York’s Radio City Mu­sic Hall to in­tro­duce rocker Bruce Spring­steen.

“I’m gonna say one thing. Fuck Trump,” De Niro said, with­out any pream­ble. With the au­di­ence of theatre ac­tors, di­rec­tors, and pro­duc­ers shriek­ing and ris­ing to their feet in ap­plause, the 74-yearold added, “It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s fuck Trump.” He did not elab­o­rate on his com­ment, switch­ing to an in­tro­duc­tion of Spring­steen.

Mean­while, Harry Pot­ter and the Cursed Child won the Tony Award for best play, Glenda Jack­son and Andrew Garfield took home act­ing prizes, and Spring­steen re­ceived a spe­cial prize at Broad­way’s hon­ours for the best in theatre.
