Man destroys portrait of ‘piece of s–t’ De Niro after actor’s anti-Trump rant
A Staten Islander was so incensed at Robert De Niro’s “F–k Trump” statement at the Tony Awards that he smashed a cherished portrait of the actor from his role in “Goodfellas.”
Joseph DeVito pulled the De Niro picture off the wall in his hallway and dragged it out to the garbage pail before destroying it, frame and all, according to video obtained by SILive.
“This used to be my idol, I used to love this guy,” DeVito said while pulling the picture off the wall.
“But after what he did last night at the Tonys — this is where Robert goes.”
After placing the picture in the garbage pail, DeVito reaches into an outdoor bin holding a variety of tools, gloves and a large rope before pulling out a hammer-like object.
“You’re a real piece of s-t,” DeVito says after smashing the glass to pieces. “Another Trump hater down.”
President Trump himself — fresh off a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un — took time to attack De Niro on Tuesday in a tweet as “very Low IQ” and “punch-drunk.“
