Robert De Niro bleeped at Tony Awards for Trump F-bomb

"It's F*** Trump!" De Niro added.

De Niro then circled back to Springsteen, saying, "Bruce, you can rock the house like nobody else".

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. "It's no longer just 'Down With Trump; it's, 'F-k Trump".

"Mr. De Niro's comments were unscripted and unexpected", CBS said in a statement.

Although most of the speakers at the Tony Awards avoided mentioning Trump by name, many sporting "Times Up" pins and highlighting left-leaning organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union.

The live audience seemed to feel the same way as they gave him a standing ovation. "Boy, do we need that now!"

Later in the evening, Robert DeNiro introduced Bruce for his performance, dropping a "fuck Trump" and congratulating Bruce on his Tony for Springsteen on Broadway, "or as I like to call it, Jersey Boy".

He also described him as an "idiot" who "lacks any sense of humanity or compassion" in a speech at a Los Angeles benefit for the promotion of higher education in March, and banned him from ever eating at his chain of Nobu restaurants.

British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber was also awarded the lifetime achievement award following a career spanning more than 50 years.
