De Niro's expletive, also called the "F-bomb", was bleeped by the CBS television network for millions of television watchers.

Robert De Niro stole the show for the audience at the Tony Awards in NY on Sunday night, when he used his time onstage to once again register his disapproval of US President Donald Trump in the bluntest way possible.

"I'm gonna say one thing: f-- Trump!" the iconic actor stated, drawing a standing ovation from the crowd. At home viewers didn't heard the curse words but other regions around the world reported that the profanity wasn't censored. "I mean, if you're Donald Trump, it doesn't mean anything". "Fuck Trump!", DeNiro began to huge applause from the crowd at the Radio City Music Hall.

De Niro then urged the audience to vote in November, before praising Springsteen for his own involvement in politics.

He did not elaborate on his comment and switched immediately to a prepared introduction of Springsteen. "Even more important in these perilous times, you rock the vote".

"Boy, do we need that now".

De Niro has been very vocal about his opinion of Trump over the years.

De Niro has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, and played the special counsel Robert Mueller on "Saturday Night Live".

In response to a Trump statement about handling protesters at one of his rallies, De Niro said: "He wants to punch people in the face?"

Online, left-wing sentiment echoed the admiration, De Niro's off-hand comment earned him the titles of "genius" and 'national treasure.' Others assumed the glittering Broadway crowd was the ideal representation of the entire American population.
