A man displayed a “Keep America Great!” flag during the curtain call for Robert De Niro’s Broadway play “A Bronx Tale” Saturday night, the New York Post reports.

The man stood at the front of the theater before being escorted out by security.

“The times we live in,” wrote one audience member on Twitter.

 

De Niro proclaimed “f**k Trump” at the Tony Awards last week, before apologizing for President Trump in Canada. (RELATED: Robert DeNiro Says ‘F**k Trump’ At The Tony Awards, And The Audience Went Wild)

Despite De Niro’s own political antics of late, in commenting on the Trump protester, Del Vicario said,

“It’s sad that people can’t enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it,” the audience member, Joe Del Vicario, wrote.

The hair designer on “Bronx Tale” also indicated his disapproval with the demonstration. Brian Strumwasser posted his shock and outrage on Instagram Sunday:

“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.”
