Saturday night on Broadway, while Robert De Niro’s musical “A Bronx Tale” was in full swing, the performance was disrupted when a Trump supporter hosted a silent protest by holding up a banner.
According to Fox News, it appears that the protest was in direct response to De Niro’s comment directed toward Trump during the Tony Awards, in which he spoke an expletive into the microphone about the president.
The protestor held up a political banner that said “Keep America Great,” a 2020 campaign slogan for Trump’s next run to stay in the White House. He stood at the foot of the stage on the end while the performance carried on.
Though audience members quickly took to twitter to voice their opinion over the matter, according to Fox News the patrons nearby him seemed to care little or to let it affect their enjoyment of the musical.
“The times we live in,” tweeted Joe Del Vicario, who was in the audience that night. “At the end, a man turned around and faced the audience to show us how big of a pair he has. He was escorted shortly after.”
He added, “It’s sad that people can’t enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it.”
One of the hair department supervisors for “The Bronx Tale” wrote on Instagram, “Whoever the low life scum bag who thinks it’s ok to post their political views at a Broadway show and disrespect everyone there who paid to watch a show that is ALL ABOUT INCLUSION was thankfully removed from the theater Saturday night.”
