Frenzied viewers wondering “WHAT DID ROBERT DE NIRO SAY???” promptly flooded Twitter, and thankfully a handful of reporters in the audience obliged.
“For those at home, De Niro said ‘Fuck Trump’ (twice),” tweeted Ryan McPhee, managing news editor at Playbill, who was in the audience.
The Hollywood Reporter’s awards columnist Scott Feinberg confirmed it: “De Niro: ‘FUCK TRUMP!’ Standing O. Repeats it! TV production people wearing headsets are staring at each other with mouths agape. Amazing live TV moment.”
