Standing ovation for De Niro's expletive at Trump

Robert De Niro introduces a performance by Bruce Springsteen at the 72nd annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday

Viewers immediately took to Twitter to ask what De Niro said, and the reported tweets from on site at the event read "Robert De Niro said F-Trump" and with the F-Trump a cleaning up of the language in case little ones read this.

The president called Trudeau "disgusting" and "weak" for how he pushed back against steep tariffs imposed by the US on steel and aluminum imports from Canada and other trade allies.

His economic adviser then went on CNN to say that Trudeau had "stabbed Trump in the back" with his comments on tariffs.

The audience rose to its feet as Robert De Niro introduced a performance by Bruce Springsteen, leaving those watching from home confused. Many in the audience stood and cheered, while TV censors quickly bleeped out the offending words.

De Niro, a staunch Trump opponent, dropped a couple of F-bombs heard clearly by the Radio City Music crowd Sunday night. "It's no longer down with Trump, it's f- Trump!"

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

His statement drew a standing ovation from actors, directors and producers in attendance.

"It's taken us about 50 years to realize how important diversification is and every political leader in Canada since that time has talked about the need for diversification", he says.

The line was classic De Niro, who has made no secret of his disdain for the billionaire real estate developer now in the White House. "Good for him. I mean, it's Robert De Niro. Who's going to argue with him?"

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.
