Robert De Niro Gets Bleeped Saying 'F*** Trump' at 2018 Tony Awards

Robert De Niro walked onto the stage of the 72nd Tony Awards on Sunday night to introduce a performance by Bruce Springsteen.

Many congrats to Stachel on his first Tony win! David Cromer was named best director of a musical for "The Band's Visit, " and John Tiffany won for best direction of a play for "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child".

The victor of the evening's first award, the Angels in America revivalstar Andrew Garfield, set the emotional tone for tonight's Tonys, offering his Best Actor in a Play win up in tribute to the LGBTQ community. Lane, who won for best featured actor in a play, said "Angels" still speaks to society in the midst of "political insanity".

The Band's Visit marks Stachel's Broadway debut.

Among the Tony Award winners and performers at the show, members of the drama department at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, survivors of a school shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people, brought the crowd to their feet with a rendition of "Seasons of Love" from "Rent".

However, it was heard by those in the audience and journalists covering the awards show, which honors the best of Broadway theatre, and it quickly became the top trending item on Twitter. The smart bet was that Broadway would give her a Tony for her script.

Kushner went even further, calling Trump's presidency "the Hitler mistake" that put a "borderline psychotic narcissist in the White House".

"Your biggest obstacle", said Stachel of "The Band's Visit", addressing young artists all across the nation, "may turn out to be your goal".

In other wins, Glenda Jackson added to her impressive resume with a Tony Award for best actress in a play for her work in a revival of Edward Albee's "Three Tall Women". Garfield's early victory allowed the TV broadcast to begin with a familiar face from the movie "Spider-Man", ideal for younger viewers who then got to see both Fey and a scene from her nominated musical, "Mean Girls". And before you knew it, almost everyone in the audience at Radio City Music Hall was on their feet.

This charming show beat back stiff challenges from two revivals of American musical-theater classics: "Carousel" and "My Fair Lady". To all artists out there, she said: "Just be your true self and the world will take note".
