Word of advice: Don't get on Robert De Niro's bad side. The Oscar-winning actor reportedly lashed out at a tech guru while presenting an award to Angelina Jolie at the WSJ Magazine Innovator Awards in NYC on Wednesday, Nov. 4.
According to Page Six, De Niro, 72, lost his cool after Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield accepted an award on stage. Butterfield joked about all the "supermodels and movie stars" in the crowd, making it seem like he was the only "nerd" in attendance. He then called out the Intern actor, who sat in the audience.
"I watched Godfather II on the plane," Butterfield, 42, said at the time. "When you killed Don Fanucci — I liked that."
De Niro, however, didn't find the humor in the tech entrepreneur's speech. During his turn on stage, he slammed the Canadian-born CEO for his comments.
"Whoever the last speaker was — I thought you were a bit condescending to us actors… celebrities," De Niro reportedly said, via Page Six. "I’m gonna go on record with you just to say that. And I don’t give a f—k who you are."

Butterfield laughed off the awkward incident. In fact, he couldn't contain his excitement about it. "I just literally got trash-talked by Robert De Niro," he captioned a Twitter pic of the actor mid-speech. "I don't know who the F–K you are." #lifegoals."
