Marine veteran Joseph DeVito destroyed a poster of actor Robert De Niro from the movie “Goodfellas” after he made a comment about President Donald Trump at the Tony Awards.
In a video posted on Facebook, DeVito points to the framed photo of the actor and says he “used to be my idol.”
“I used to love this guy, Robert De Niro,” he explains. “But after what he did last night at the Tonys, this is where Robert goes.”
Watch the video below:
After going upstairs and outside to what appears to be a porch, DeVito opens one of his garbage cans and tosses the framed poster inside.
Then he goes into a large toolbox, pulls out a hammer, and smashes the frame, saying, “This is what we think of you.”
The destruction continues when he takes the poster out of the smashed frame and rips it into multiple pieces.
“Another Trump hater down,” he concludes as he puts the lid back onto the trash can.
DeVito’s outrage was in response to De Niro saying “f**k Trump” at the Tony Awards on Sunday, and the Marine veteran explained to Staten Island Live that the language was inappropriate when kids could have been watching.
When asked about a 2014 Facebook post criticizing former President Barack Obama, DeVito added, “I’m not on TV saying, ‘F**k the president.’
“Some of my family were Obama supporters, and we bang heads, but we’re not going to fight over it; everybody has their own opinion,” he told Staten Island Live.
DeVito added that it “makes no sense” to start a fight with someone over whose opinion is right and wrong.
His video, which was posted Monday, has been viewed 2.7 million times and shared over 70,000 times.
