Former President Donald Trump rebuked award-winning actor Robert De Niro on his social media platform, Truth Social, following De Niro's scathing critique during the Gotham Awards ceremony.
This incident is the latest in the ongoing verbal feud between the two high-profile figures, drawing international attention and intensifying the collision of politics and entertainment.
De Niro's Unscripted Condemnation
De Niro was scheduled to present an award during the Gotham Awards. However, upon noticing that his prepared comments on Trump had been removed from the teleprompter, he defied the script and delivered his critique directly from an earlier version on his phone.
The Academy Award-winning actor lambasted Trump for his consistent dishonesty, calling him a charlatan and criticizing his blatant disrespect towards others and the environment.
