Sunday evening at the 72nd annual Tony Awards, awarding achievements made in the 2017-2018 season of Broadway Productions, Robert De Niro was tasked with introducing Bruce Springsteen for a performance of “My Hometown.”
What he delivered was unprecedented. Before launching into a brief speech in which he sang the praises of longtime friend Springsteen, De Niro wanted to make one thing very clear: FDT, no YG included.
“I’m just going to say one thing,” he began according to Deadline. “F-ck Trump!“ he exclaimed with a scowl on his face. “It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s F-ck Trump,” he said once more this time pumping two fists in the air.
