CBS Censored Robert De Niro's Tony Awards Introduction For Bruce Springsteen—Here's What He Said

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

As an actor Robert De Niro is known for taking tough roles head on. Sunday night's 72nd Annual Tony Awards was no exception, where the Oscar winner took on the President of the United States during his introduction of rocker Bruce Springsteen's performance. 

Unfortunately for viewers at home, the censors at CBS were quick enough to bleep De Niro's comments. 

But #NoFOMO here! Outlets on the scene documented those words and released them online shortly after, so we could all have the pleasure of rejoicing in his headline making speech.

The video below is bleeped, but you can watch it as you read the actor's viral words:

I just want to say one thing: Fuck Trump. It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s fuck Trump.
