Robert De Niro Bans Donald Trump From Going To His Nobu Restaurants

Being the leader of the free world, you'd think that there'd be no door you couldn't unlock, no bar you couldn't drink from and no restaurant you couldn't eat in.

Well, it looks like one chain has banned US President Donald Trump from ever being allowed to walk through their doors.


Nobu Restaurants are a pretty exclusive chain that are dotted around the world, with the most recent establishment being opened in Marbella. They're owned by celebrity chef Nobuyuki 'Nobu' Matsuhisa, Robert De Niro, Meir Teper, Drew Nieporent, and Richie Notar.

De Niro has revealed to the Daily Mail that not only would Trump not be allowed into a Nobu, but the Taxi Driver actor said he wouldn't dine anywhere that the President was.

"I don't care what he likes. If he walked into a restaurant I was in - I'd walk out," he told the MailOnline.

This shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone who's been keeping up with the actor's thoughts on the American President - which he certainly made clear during the 2016 election.


He released a video where he said: "[Trump's] so blatantly stupid. He's a punk. He's a dog. He's a pig. He's a con. He's a bullshit artist.

"He's an idiot. He's an embarrassment. He talks about how he wants to punch people in the face, well, I'd like to punch him in the face."

Certainly doesn't mince his words now does he.

Bobby went a step further just after it was confirmed that Trump had won the election, comparing the moment to the 9/11 terror attacks. Bloody Hell, mate, bit strong.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, the legendary actor said: "I feel like I did after 9/11. We'll just see what happens. There will be many, many, many, many, many people watching." That's a lot.

But if you thought De Niro had said his bit and would get back to acting and running restaurants you'd be wrong.

Two months ago, he spoke at a Fulfillment Fund event and reportedly said: "As long as our country's leadership is so appalling and so corrupt, I'll be speaking out at every venue.

"To be silent in the face of such villainy is to be complicit, and it's especially appropriate tonight because Trump treats education as a con, a way to make a profit at the expense of the suckers."

So we can pretty much expect this for the next two and a half years.
