Rob Reiner Tells Fox News De Niro’s Tonys Outburst Was Not Helpful to Trump Critics

Actor and liberal activist Rob Reiner says Robert De Niro didn’t help those fighting the agenda of President Donald Trump with his profane outburst at the Tony Awards.

De Niro became a figure of conservative disdain this week when he yelled “f*ck Trump” on stage and drew a great deal of applause from the audience. In an interview airing Sunday with Howard Kurtz for MediaBuzz, Reiner was asked about this and said it won’t help Trump’s critics.

“Everybody is entitled to free speech, they can say whatever they want, but I don’t think that is particularly helpful for those of us who don’t want to see Trump in office or continue to be in office.”

The full interview with Reiner airs this Sunday at 11 a.m. EST.
