DeNiro Stripped of Philanthropy Award Over Anti-Trump Rant Outside Courthouse

Ladies and gentleman, I present to you the latest example of the Trump blowback effect, in all its glory.

Following his despicable, anti-Trump rant outside the New York courthouse Trump was being tried in, TDS-infected actor Robert DeNiro has just been stripped of a prestigious award for philanthropy.

The National Association of Broadcasters has just announced that they will no longer be honoring DeNiro at their upcoming award ceremony.

Check out the news:

Is this the future?

Is MAGA going mainstream?…

The New York Post reported:

A broadcasters trade association is pulling a philanthropy award it had planned to give to Robert De Niro after the actor bashed former President Donald Trump on behalf of the Biden campaign earlier this week.

The National Association of Broadcasters has revoked its award and invitation to the Celebration of Service to America awards event to De Niro because the group thought his recent work and comments on behalf of the president’s re-election campaign would “create a distraction.”

The “Goodfellas” actor said Trump “could destroy the whole world” during a press conference Tuesday outside the Manhattan courthouse where Trump was being criminally tried.

Daily Mail added:

Robert De Niro will no longer be honored at the National Association of Broadcasters award ceremony following his anti-Trump rant outside the former president’s criminal trial.

The Oscar-winning actor, 80, was set to be handed the group’s Leadership Foundation’s Service to America Award next week.

But the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) has rescinded the award after De Niro hit out at Donald Trump in a press conference in support of Joe Biden outside Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday.

‘I owe this city a lot. And that’s why it’s so weird that Donald Trump is just across the street because he doesn’t belong in my city,’ he told reporters.

The NAB which describes itself as ‘proudly bipartisan’ said De Niro would no longer be attending their event.

‘This event is proudly bipartisan, uniting those from across the political spectrum to celebrate the impactful work of local broadcasters and our partners,’ an NAB spokesman told The Hill.

‘While we strongly support the right of every American to exercise free speech and participate in civic engagement, it is clear that Mr. De Niro’s recent high-profile activities will create a distraction from the philanthropic work that we were hoping to recognize.

‘To maintain the focus on service of the award winners, Mr. De Niro will no longer be attending the event.’

It comes days after De Niro said he joined the Biden campaign because it was the only way to ‘preserve our freedoms’.

‘I don’t mean to scare you. No, wait, maybe I do mean to scare you,’ he told reporters.

‘If Trump returns to the White House, you can kiss these freedoms goodbye that we all take for granted.’

What do you think?

Do you support the NAB’s decision to bar DeNiro from the award?
