Tell us how you really feel Robert De Niro.

The venerable actor ended up getting bleeped Sunday night at the Tony Awards when he dropped some f-bombs about President Donald Trump while introducing a performance by Bruce Springsteen.

“First, I wanna say, ‘f**k Trump,’” De Niro said. “It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘f**k Trump.’”

The comments, which were not censored in the Australian telecast, earned De Niro a standing ovation from the crowd at New York’s Radio City Music Hall and stirred conversation on social media.
