Millions watched the recent Tony Awards show last Sunday and recalled actor Robert De Niro's explicit comments towards President Donald Trump.
It appears that each and every awards show, aside from the Academy of Country Music Awards, needs their few hours to bash the Republican president.
On Sunday, June 10, De Niro stood on stage of the politically-charged Tony Awards show and laid into Trump with a profanity-laced tirade. With a few short, explicit words, De Niro was able to receive a standing ovation.
"I'm going to say one thing: ----, Trump!" he said to the crowd with clenched fists.
The audience began to cheer and stand in agreeance with De Niro's remark towards President Trump. Once the crowd quieted, he continued with his hateful speech.
"It's no longer down with Trump, it's ----, Trump!" he concluded.
Many people from home were not pleased with De Niro's comments, including Franklin Graham. Graham took to social media to blast De Niro and Hollywood.
"President Donald J. Trump is making history in Singapore by meeting with the leader of North Korea, and Robert De Niro has the audacity to curse him on stage, on air, at the 72nd annual Tony Awards last night,” Graham wrote. “Those in the audience should have walked out on such a blatant display of disrespect—but instead, he gets a standing ovation.”
"The unbridled hate many in Hollywood have for this president is unreal," the Christian evangelist said. "There is a battle being waged for direction and the future of this nation—a battle between good and evil—and we need to pray."
