Fortunately, audience members inside the house clarified over Twitter, reporting that De Niro said, "I'm going to say this - F- TRUMP".

"I just want to say one thing", De Niro said.

De Niro and Springsteen visited the White House in 2009 as both were recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors that year. "Even more important in these perilous times, you rock the vote".

Robert De Niro introduced Bruce Springsteen's performance of a piano-accompanied version of "My Hometown", at the Tony Awards, and opened his speech by dropping two profane comments aimed at President Donald Trump.

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

De Niro threw his arms in the air defiantly as the crowd cheered and gave him a standing ovation. Before doing that, De Niro made a decision to open with a message for President Donald Trump, who will soon meet with Kim Jon Ung.

Warning: this video contains strong language that some viewers may find inappropriate for offensive.

"Mr De Niro's comments were unscripted and unexpected", said a CBS spokesperson. "Boy, do we need that now!" "Who's gonna argue with him?"

De Niro, a noted liberal, has been increasingly critical of Trump, a Republican, at smaller show business events, but none have the high profile and audience of the Tony Awards.
