On Sunday, De Niro was bleeped at the Tony Awards when he dropped some f-bombs about President Donald Trump while introducing a performance by Bruce Springsteen.

De Niro's latest rant took Twitter by storm with many people supporting the actor, while some expressed their irritation with his recent anti-Trump statements.

The unscripted moment left production people shocked, though it was caught in time to censor the audio before he continued with his speech about the Boss. The CBS television audience heard dead silence instead before he raised his arms - twice - and earned a sustained standing ovation. Trump tweeted, adding that Trudeau was "Very dishonest & weak".

De Niro went off script in the Tony Awards telecast, and the offensive language was deleted from the broadcast, the CBS reported.

"Bruce, you can rock the house like nobody else", said De Niro.

Jazz and Motown music played as guests waited for De Niro, chef Nobu Matsuhisa and other Nobu executives to arrive.

De Niro's comments on Monday echoed that call.

In two tweets that announced the end of US support for the joint G-7 statement, Trump claimed Trudeau made "false statements" during a prior news conference and went on to lambaste the Canadian leader.

The actor also apologized to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Group of Seven on behalf of Americans for Trump's about-face after the G7 summit concluded in Charlevoix, Que. "Boy, do we need that now!"

This is not the first time that when De Niro has revolted against Trump.

De Niro, part owner of the Nobu Hotels chain, told the news organization after the event that he felt he had no choice but to speak out against the president.
