Robert De Niro Gets Bleeped Saying 'F*** Trump' at 2018 Tony Awards

Meanwhile, Robert De Niro thumbed his nose at President Trump when, before introducing his friend Bruce Springsteen, he said, "I just want to say one thing".

"I'm gonna say one thing: F-k Trump", De Niro shouted, raising his arms into the air as the crowd cheered for almost half a minute.

Taking the stage to present Bruce Springsteen towards the end of Sunday's three-hour CBS telecast, the actor opened with a few simple words: "First, I wanna say, 'F-k Trump.' It's no longer 'Down with Trump, ' it's 'F-k Trump'".

The "deplorables" who voted for Trump probably were not watching the Tony Awards. The win was announced at the Tonys ceremony on June 10 at Radio City Music Hall.

Among the Tony Award winners and performers at the show, members of the drama department at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, survivors of a school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people, brought the crowd to their feet with a rendition of "Seasons of Love" from "Rent". Two expletives earned him a standing ovation and a shower of admiration from the liberal crowd.

Metcalf's award marked the second consecutive Tony for the actress, who past year won for best lead actress in a play for her performance in "A Doll's House, Part 2".




Co-hosts Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles kicked the show off with a self-parodying duet on piano for all the losers out there - including them.

In her acceptance speech, telling Tony hopefuls to be true to themselves, Mendez said that when she had first moved to NY, she had been told she would need to change her name.

The tip-off that "The Band's Visit" was going to win big came with the award for Best Book of a Musical.

Many critics have tapped The Band's Visit as their odds-on favourite to be crowned best new musical.

Springsteen made no reference to De Niro's remarks during his subsequent performance.

The Broadway musical "Once on This Island", whose producers include longtime Portland and Lake Oswego resident Corey Brunish of Island Productions, won the 2018 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical Sunday night.
