Robert De Niro uses F-bomb about Trump on live TV

Robert De Niro stole the show for the audience at the Tony Awards in NY on Sunday night, when he used his time onstage to once again register his disapproval of US President Donald Trump in the bluntest way possible.

De Niro has been an outspoken critic of Trump, even saying in May he barred the president from visiting any locations of his swanky restaurant, Nobu.

While the USA censored the expletives, Aussie viewers were gifted the moment in all of its glory and Twitter was set alight. Then Ming-Na Wen presented the education award to Melody Herzfeld, the drama teacher at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who kept her students safe during the school shooting in Parkland, Florida.

Sadly, Mean Girls now has the dubious distinction of faring the most poorly in Tony Awards history, alongside The Scottsboro Boys in 2011, which was also shut out despite 12 nominations. He got a huge standing ovation from the room, and continued with.
