Robert De Niro apologizes to Canadians for Donald Trump's behaviour

De Niro's comments brought the cheering crowd at Radio City Music Hall to its feet but were bleeped for US television audiences.

Her take was only the latest media response to the truly unexpected moment provided by De Niro from the 72d Tony Awards from Sunday evening.

In response to a Trump statement about handling protesters at one of his rallies, De Niro said: "He wants to punch people in the face?" "It's a disgrace, and I apologize to [Canadian Prime Minister] Justin Trudeau, too, and the other people at the G-7".

Actor Robert De Niro took the stage at the 72nd Annual Tony Awards Sunday night to introduce his friend Bruce Springsteen - but his introduction took a slight detour. Trump disavowed a joint G7 statement and called Trudeau "dishonest" on Twitter shortly after leaving the meeting, adding that the USA will look at automobile tariffs on Canada.

Tensions between Trump and Trudeau are at an all-time high after the two leaders disagreed over trade at the summit. The hip-hop star has applauded veteran entertainer Robert De Niro for publicly ripping President Donald Trump. The crowd responded with thunderous applause and a standing ovation.

Echoing Trump's sentiments, White House trade adviser Peter Navarro also spoke harshly about Trudeau on Fox News over the weekend.

Ever since De Niro's F-bomb comment went viral, celebrities and Twitterati have been praising the veteran actor for his courage and wittiness.

As Ruhle talked to Elise Jordan and Mark Thompson about this, she said that "I understand the frustration and outrage around the president". This f***ing idiot is the President. "Good for him. I mean, it's Robert De Niro". "It's all about the man and his music, not to mention the heartfelt stories behind 40 years of incredible songs", said Joel, who credited Springsteen for bringing many new theatergoers into the Broadway fold.
