Taking the stage to introduce Bruce Springsteen's performance at the awards, the 74-year-old wasted no time with such a public opportunity.

De Niro, a staunch opponent of Donald Trump, dropped a couple of F-bombs on Monday night in New York City before raising his arms and encouraging the crowd to vote in the upcoming midterm elections.

"And I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behavior of my president", De Niro said at the event to launch a new business development, CBC reported.

F*ck Trump." The audience cheered and applauded as he added: "It's no longer down with Trump. "When you help put a vulgar perv like Trump in the White House you can expect a vulgar response from America". "Boy, do we need that now".

De Niro is in Toronto for a groundbreaking ceremony for the Nobu restaurant and hotel, a project that the Oscar-winning actor is invested in.

Amid the spoken part of his performance, Springsteen dwelt on growing up "surrounded by God and all my relatives" in the U.S., explaining that people did their best to resist the "demons, outside and inside, that sought to destroy them". "Our baby-in-chief - the j***-off-in-chief, I call him - has put the press under siege, ridiculing it and trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies", De Niro said.

A CBS spokesperson said in a statement to Deadline: "Mr. De Niro's comments were unscripted and unexpected". "The offensive language was deleted from the broadcast".
