Hollywood’s top hero, Robert De Niro has apologized for making joke of a Democratic fundraiser along with Michelle Obama. He joked about the possibility of having “White First Lady” right after the presidential elections at White House in November.
Robert De Niro secured two Oscar awards for “The Godfather: Part II” and “Raging Bull”. The actor said that he did not have any intentions to target the wives of Republican presidential contenders Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney.
“My remarks, although spoken with satirical jest, were not meant to offend or embarrass anyone — especially the first lady,” Said De Niro.
“Callista Gingrich, Karen Santorum, Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?” De Niro said. “Too soon, right?”
While Net Gingrich termed De Niro’s joke an inexcusable and divisive. The statement released from th Michelle Obama office remarked job as “inappropriate”.
