De Niro apologizes to Canada for 'idiotic behavior of my president'

De Niro apologizes to Canada for 'idiotic behavior of my president'

It all started when De Niro introduced a Bruce Springsteen performance at the awards show.

Robert De Niro speaks onstage during the 72nd Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on June 10, 2018 in New York City.

"It's no longer "Down with Trump".

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.

The denunciation is less of a surprise when you consider that a month before Trump was elected, De Niro made a video in which he called him a "pig" and a "bullshit artist".

A spokesperson for the United States network CBS - which was broadcasting the event - subsequently confirmed that it had bleeped the actor's curses out of the show.

What else can we expect next? Under the rules, internet service providers were required to treat all online content the same. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has said the agency under Obama overstepped its authority when it imposed the 2015 regulations.

Mr. Scarborough cited a tweet by MSNBC political analyst and former Republican strategist Steve Schmidt, who wrote Monday morning that Mr. De Niro squandered the opportunity to say something of substance.

"Boy, do we need that now".

Although many people in attendance at the Tony Awards showed support to De Niro, some celebrities took to Twitter to express their disapproval towards the man's harsh words.

"After De Niro, CBS told us to do something drastic, so here we are", Groban joked.

Warning: Language may be offensive in the video below. "Good for him. I mean, it's Robert De Niro". After leaving the summit, Trump quickly reneged on a joint communique after Trudeau reiterated to reporters that USA tariffs on Canada that site national security as a rationale are "insulting" to Canadians.

De Niro has always been a critic of President Donald Trump's administration.
