It was a happy Monday evening for Robert De Niro as he received a big honour at the annual Chaplin Award Gala from the Film Society of Lincoln Centre.

The actor shared the space with other legends like Michael Douglas and Ben Stiller among others. During his acceptance speech, JustJared.com reports, Robert
reprimanded “mean-spirited” Donald Trump for targeting art programmes.

He said, “For their own divisive political purposes, the administration suggests that the money for these all-inclusive programmes goes to rich liberal elites. This is what they now call an ‘alternative fact,’ but I call it bullshit,” and added, “I don’t make movies for rich liberal elites… I make them for everybody.”
