LOS ANGELES (AP) Robert De Niro is ignoring people who say actors, singers and athletes shouldn’t speak about politics.
He says he has the right to do so as a citizen – and has a responsibility to do so as a celebrity. De Niro says all Americans have the right to protest. And he says as a celebrity he should use his platform because he knows others will listen to him.
De Niro made his comments last night in Los Angeles as he accepted a lifetime achievement award from the Screen Actors Guild.
