De Niro Bleeped At Tony Awards For Trump F-Bomb

Kushner went even further, calling Trumps presidency "the Hitler mistake" that put a "borderline psychotic narcissist in the White House". "Boy, do we need that now!"

It's the latest-and certainly the most explicit-example of an entertainer using the microphone at an awards ceremony to express derision for Trump.

The legendary actor was presenting an award at the Tony Awards last night when he came out on stage and said 'I'm gonna say one thing. fuck Trump!' to thunderous applause.

The big winners at this year's Tonys - hosted by Josh Groban and Sara Bareilles - was new Broadway musical "The Band's Visit", scooping 10 prizes, including beating "Spongebob Squarepants", "Mean Girls" and "Frozen" in the Best Musical category.

Whether you fancy yourself a mean girl, a fair lady or (not!) a simple sponge, the 2018 Tony Awards offered a little something for everyone.

Then, getting political, Garfield said, referring to the recent SCOTUS decision, "Let's all bake a cake for everybody who wants a cake to be baked!"

The dominance of "The Band's Visit" was widely expected, as was that of "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child", a dramatic sequel to the iconic series of books that imagines Harry Potter with a Hogwarts-bound son of his own.

While the United States censored the expletives, Aussie viewers were gifted the moment in all of its glory and Twitter was set alight. Earlier this year, while speaking at the National Board of Review's annual awards gala, the actor used equally salty language, The Hill noted.

Metcalf's award marked the second consecutive Tony for the actress, who past year won for best lead actress in a play for her performance in "A Doll's House, Part 2".

Best Advice: "Be your true self and the world will take note", said Lindsay Mendez accepting her award for Featured Actress in a Musical for her work in Carousel.

Springsteen attended the four-hour rehearsal Sunday morning and electrified the sleepy crowd when he walked onstage in a T-shirt and jeans, performed one song on the piano from his sold-out one-man show and departed to a standing ovation.
