Robert De Niro’s Trump comments at Tony Awards go viral
Disclose to us how you truly feel Robert De Niro.
The revered on-screen character wound up getting bleeped Sunday night at the Tony Awards when he dropped some f-bombs about President Donald Trump while presenting an execution by Bruce Springsteen.
“First, I wanna say, ‘f**k Trump,’” De Niro said. “It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘f**k Trump.’”
The remarks, which were not blue-penciled in the Australian broadcast, earned De Niro an overwhelming applause from the group at New York’s Radio City Music Hall and blended discussion via web-based networking media.
Robert De Niro is my favorite rapper.

Want to know why Robert De Niro said “f-k Trump”
last night at the Tonys?
Because he was born in Trump’s hometown of NYC.
Like all New Yorkers, he knows @realDonaldTrump
If you don’t feel the same way about him yet
you don’t know him like New Yorkers do
But you will

I am shocked and horrified by Robert De Niro’s comments at the Tonys and the standing ovation they received.
Enough is enough. It’s time to fight back.
