Tell us how you really feel, Rob.

Dropping Love Island spoilers, was he? Nope! Before introducing Bruce Springsteen, the veteran actor took to the mic to say one thing: “F*ck Trump!”

He was only censored on the US feed though – those Down Under felt the full brunt of his words:

I just want to say one thing — F*ck Trump. It’s no longer down with Trump. It’s f*ck Trump.”

Hmm. How long before Trump tweets about how much he hates Taxi Driver?

DeNiro wasn’t the only recipient of a standing ovation that night. The drama students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School sang of love and loss in an stirring performance of ‘Seasons of Love’ from the musical Rent.

Their drama teacher, Melody Herzfeld, was honored with a Tony Award for excellence in theater education from the Tonys and Carnegie Mellon University at the Sunday ceremony. She and 65 of her students hid for two hours in her office when a mass shooter went on a rampage on February 14 the high school in Parkland, Florida.
