Watch: Angry Robert De Niro claims his speech is censored at Gotham Awards

This is the moment an angry Robert De Niro claims his speech has been censored to remove anti-Donald Trump remarks.

The actor gave a speech at the Gotham Awards in Los Angeles on Monday (27 November) to present a tribute award to Celine Song’s drama Past Lives.

Reading from a teleprompter, De Niro, 80, realises a section of his speech has been omitted.

He proceeds to read the edited comments from his phone.

He claims: “The beginning of my speech was edited, cut out,

“I didn’t know about it.”
