Robert DeNiro has a powerful message for Americans following the discovery of a pipe bomb that was mailed to his production company, Tribeca Enterprises.
“I thank God no one’s been hurt, and I thank the brave and resourceful security and law enforcement people for protecting us,” the actor and owner of the Tribeca Film Festival told CNN’s Jake Tapper. “There’s something more powerful than bombs, and that’s your vote. People MUST vote!”
Tribeca Enterprises also issued a statement saying that the proper precautions were taken and that business will continue as usual.
“A suspicious package was received,” the organization said. “We called the police. They took it out and went through all safety procedures. It was addressed to Robert De Niro and is similar packaging to the others. It is an open investigation. Everyone is safe and the building is open.”
Twitter’s reaction to DeNiro: good. Fight.
A pipe bomb was discovered on the 7th floor of 375 Greenwich Street on Thursday, the latest in a string of attempted assassinations of critics of President Donald Trump. The package was nearly identical to others that were sent to top Democrats and CNN earlier this week.
The targets include former President Barack Obama, the Clintons, George Soros, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Attorney General Eric Holder, former CIA Director John Brennan, and members of Congress.
Two additional explosive devices – one addressed to Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) and the other to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper – were discovered Friday morning.
