Robert De Niro Apologizes To Canadians For Donald Trump’s Behaviour

Share

Robert De Niro has taken it upon himself and is apologizing to Canadians for the "idiotic behavior of my president" just one day after the actor launched an expletive at Donald Trump at the Tony awards.

The move, which generated headlines around the world, didn't appear to sit too well with The Project co-host Waleed Aly when it came up during Tuesday night's episode of the news program. Aly asked after the footage was replayed on screen.

The Los Angeles native went to Instagram Monday (June 11) to share footage of De Niro getting at Trump.

"F**k Trump" he told the adoring audience.

De Niro is in Toronto for a groundbreaking ceremony for the Nobu restaurant and hotel, a project that the Oscar-winning actor is invested in.

The "Raging Bull" star also used the opportunity to urge Americans to vote, and he praised Springsteen for his own political commitment.

The venerable actor followed his f-bomb laden screed against Trump at Sunday's Tony Awards with a more reserved encore at a news conference in Toronto.

The CBS television network, which was broadcasting the event live but with a delay of a few seconds, scrambled to bleep out De Niro's expletive.

It was hardly the first time that De Niro, who was born in NY and lives in the city, attacked fellow New Yorker Trump.

With his fists raised towards the sky, De Niro explained: "I'm gonna say one thing".

A CBS spokesperson said in a statement to Deadline: "Mr. De Niro's comments were unscripted and unexpected".

After the audience settled, De Niro got back to talking about Springsteen, who received a special Tony Award during Sunday night.
