Get This: De Niro apologizes to Canada for 'idiotic behavior' of Trump

De Niro was much more candid at the Tony Awards on Sunday night, earning a standing ovation for expletives aimed at the USA president.

The move, which generated headlines around the world, didn't appear to sit too well with The Project co-host Waleed Aly when it came up during Tuesday night's episode of the news program.

CBS confirmed that De Niro went off script in his remarks as he took the stage to introduce Bruce Springsteen's performance on the Tony telecast. Aly asked after the footage was replayed on screen.

'I have one thing to say and that's F*** Trump, ' DeNiro boomed into the microphone.

However, the audience inside the venue could hear every word of De Niro's rant.

USA unveils de facto embassy in Taiwan
The United States opened AIT shortly after terminating formal ties with Taipei - a diplomatic workaround that has irked Beijing. The AIT represents USA interests in Taiwan in the absence of official diplomatic ties.

De Niro has been an outspoken critic of Trump, even saying in May he barred the president from visiting any locations of his swanky restaurant, Nobu. "We all belong. So I dedicate this award to the countless LGBTQ people who have fought and died to protect that spirit, to protect that message for the right to live and love as we are created to".

A spokesperson for the United States network CBS - which was broadcasting the event - subsequently confirmed that it had bleeped the actor's curses out of the show.

"I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president", he said.

De Niro's unexpected action received roaring applause from the audience at the awards, with many celebrities jumping up from their seats.

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad-faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door", Navarro said.
