Robert De Niro apologises to Canada for 'idiotic behaviour' of Trump

The CBS cameras panned the audience after DeNiro's declaration and he got a standing ovation

Robert DeNiro got right to the point when he took the stage in NY to present a Tony Award on Sunday night, but the television audience didn't get to hear it.

Taking the stage to introduce Bruce Springsteen's performance at the awards, the 74-year-old wasted no time with such a public opportunity.

Actor Robert De Niro has offered an apology to Justin Trudeau for the bahviour of U.S. President Donald Trump, calling it "disgraceful". While CBS was quick to catch the swear for US audiences, the word wasn't censored during the Australian broadcast.

The venerable actor followed his f-bomb laden screed against Trump at Sunday's Tony Awards with a more reserved encore at a news conference in Toronto.

'First, I wanna say, 'f**k Trump, ' the man started, causing many to cheer. "It's no longer down with Trump, it's F*** Trump!"

Trump says Trudeau's G7 comments will cost Canadians a lot of money
Kudlow explained on CNN that the administration was lashing out at Trudeau to show Kim that Trump was not weak. Market!" the president tweeted . "Look, countries can not continue to take advantage of us on trade".

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

But unlike the expletive-filled rant that earned him a standing ovation at the Tony Awards less than 24 hours earlier, the Oscar-winning actor instead took a PG approach, apologizing to Canadians for Trump's "idiotic behavior". "People stop believing what the media tells them when they see media superstars say things like 'Let the economy fail'". It is how you remind the country that the most corrupt, racist and traitorous government in America's history is going down, hard, SOON.

Kathy Griffin shared a pic of her and one of De Niro, writing: 'The F**k Trump Club'.

'Ah, the tolerant Left.

"This guy just is a jerk", De Niro said.
