De Niro’s declaration was met with a standing ovation from theater-loving attendees, and Stewart wondered what it would have been like if the same comment was made about Obama.

“Can you just imagine what would’ve happened if an actor had said ‘F…. Obama’ on the Tony Awards?” she tweeted. ”[…] So disrespectful to say about any sitting president.”

In a subsequent tweet, Stewart added that she was “sorry to see the hate-filled, bitter man that Robert De Niro has turned into.”

The actress, who is also the CEO of the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, shared that the actor came to her house on “several occasions” a few years ago and “always seemed nice then.”

Stewart acknowledged that everyone is “entitled to their opinion” but added that “it’s offensive to many of us to hear that kind of language on live TV.”

She also wondered where the hate for Trump is coming from, given what she sees as major accomplishments.

“And I’m not sure what he’s doing so terrible since unemployment is lowest in 50 years [and] black and Hispanic unemployment lowest in history,” she tweeted.

De Niro’s comment about Trump, which was censored on the live broadcast, was met with overwhelming approval from audience members, but others expressed their distaste for the display online.
