Robert De Niro apologizes to Trudeau for Trump's 'idiotic behaviour'

Tina Fey and

In 2016, when Trump was the Republican presidential candidate, De Niro slammed him as "blatantly stupid", "totally nuts", and an "idiot".

CBS censors managed to bleep the moment from the US airwaves, but an uncensored clip from Australian television went viral on Twitter late Sunday night.

Robert De Niro didn't set foot on a Broadway stage this past year, yet on last night's Tony Awards, he received one of the loudest and most sustained ovations of the night with only two words: "Fuck Trump". Fuck Trump", as he raised his fists, "it's no longer down with Trump.

"A note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my president".

De Niro made his comments at a groundbreaking for a new restaurant and hotel complex in Toronto. While CBS was quick to catch the swear for USA audiences, the word wasn't censored during the Australian broadcast.

On Sunday night during the Creative Arts portion of the Tony Awards ceremony, Dobson showed the audience at Radio City Music Hall just how valuable a quality foley artist can be to a production.

China complains to US about new de facto embassy in Taiwan
AIT's Taipei office has almost 500 American and local employees, while its Kaohsiung branch has more than 30 staff. It opened the American Institute of Taiwan (AIT) to conduct relations between the two sides after severing ties.

The CBS television audience heard dead silence instead of De Niro's comments, The Associated Press reports.

De Niro's negative opinions about Trump are nothing new. "The offensive language was deleted from the broadcast", CBS said in a statement.

Expressing his upset after Trump won the election, he told the Hollywood Reporter: "I feel like I did after 9/11".

De Niro is a well-known opponent of Trump and has launched verbal attacks against him on multiple occasions.

Ahead of the Tonys, Salonga was among the winners of the popular website Broadway World's annual Theater Fans' Choice Awards, where she was voted Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her performance in "Once on This Island".

When asked about De Niro's remarks, Seawright said he probably would have chosen different words but seemed to praise De Niro for voicing people's "frustration".
