Robert De Niro Says Part Of His Speech Excised At Gotham Awards – Upnewsdaily

Robert De Niro led an eventful Killers Of The Flower Moon tribute at the Gotham Awards tonight, seeming to struggle with the teleprompter but then circling back after a bit to say that his speech had been edited without his knowledge, thus the confusion. The star of the Martin Scorsese film then went on to blast alternate facts, the state of the nation, and Donald Trump’s “lies” — and the fact that the former president used ‘Pocahontas” as a slur.

“The beginning of my speech was edited, cut out..and I want to read it,” he said to the big crowd at Cipriani Wall Street to loud applause. “History isn’t history any more. Truth is not truth…Lying has become just another tool in the charlatan’s arsenal.”

The film also stars Lily Gladstone, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tantoo Cardinal, Cara Jade Myers, Jillian Dion, JaNae Collins, William Belleau, Yancey Redcorn, Talee Redcorn.

The Martin Scorses film by Apple, distributed by Paramount, didn’t submit for the Gothams despite the awards having lifted a budget cap — previously set at $35 million — for eligibility. A number of other big films stayed on the sidelines as well.

De Niro, in his speech, seemed to blame Apple for the editing.
