De Niro Stripped of Award

( – In a perfectly deserved punishment, leftist Hollywood actor Robert De Niro will not be honored with an award at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) annual event after his vocal criticism of former President Donald Trump, occurring shortly before Trump was convicted by a New York jury.

Initially, the NAB intended to present the 80-year-old actor with its Service To America Award during a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday. However, they have since rescinded the award.

The organization, which describes itself as “proudly bi-partisan,” explained its decision through a statement reported by The Hill, cited by The daily Wire.

“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,” the NAB spokesperson stated.

Consequently, De Niro will not be participating in the event, as confirmed by the absence of his name and photo on the list of this year’s honorees on the NAB website.

Reacting to the withdrawal of the award, De Niro expressed his thoughts to the media.

“I support the work of the NAB Leadership Foundation and would like to express my appreciation and gratitude for what the Foundation has done and will continue to do for the good of us all, and I wish them well for their continued good work,” the actor known for his role in “Goodfellas” remarked.

Prior to Trump’s conviction in the Hush-Money trial, De Niro vocally criticized the former president and his supporters at a campaign event for President Joe Biden held outside the New York courthouse as the trial was nearing its conclusion.

“Under Trump, this kind of government will perish from the Earth. I don’t mean to scare you. No, no, wait, maybe I do mean to scare you. If Trump returns to the White House, you can kiss these freedoms goodbye that we all take for granted,” De Niro declared.

“And elections? Forget about them. That’s over, that’s done. If he gets in, I can tell you right now, he will never leave. He will never leave. You know that. He will never leave,” he continued.

“That’s why I’ve joined the Biden-Harris campaign, because the only way to preserve our freedoms and hold on to our humanity is to vote for Joe Biden for president,” he added emphatically. “Really – we don’t have a choice.”

Trump campaign officials described De Niro’s appearance at the event as a last-ditch effort by the Biden campaign.
