Robert De Niro apologizes for ‘the idiotic behaviour of my president’


But Fox News host Brian Kilmeade had a different take, saying that De Niro's comments were yet another reason not to watch "Meet the Parents", a 2000 film in which De Niro co-starred.

Robert De Niro can't seem to stand in front of a microphone without delivering a volley of abuse at Donald Trump these days, but last night the actor surpassed even himself. "To leave the prompter to say [f*u Trump.]", Kilmeade said.

He applauded De Niro. The Band's Visit would go on to win the Tony for Best Musical.

The CBS live broadcast of the ceremony in New York's Radio City Music Hall managed to bleep out the swear words after running on a slight delay, but the outburst was reportedly not censored in other countries.

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

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" followed suit, with Joe Scarborough calling De Niro's comment "the lowlight of the evening".

"Hey Trump - I'm talkin' to you!"

Bourdain said he really had no idea that anyone outside the world of chefs would even pay attention to his comments. According to Anthony's 83-year old mother, red tape is behind the delay in returning his body to the family.


Welcoming Springsteen to the stage, DeNiro added: "In these perilous times, you rock the vote, always fighting for truth, transparency and integrity in government".

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

"Boy, do we need that now".

His comments came the day after he used an expletive to refer to Trump in a televised Tony Awards show in NY.

Prior to his speech, he cursed at US President Donald Trump.

However, the audience inside the venue could hear every word of De Niro's rant. "I'd like to punch him in the face!"
