Washington, Mar 20 (ANI): Robert De Niro told the crowd at a New York fundraiser that it was too early for the country to have another white first lady.
The 85-person event was headlined by Michelle Obama.
"Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white first lady?" the Politico quoted him as asking the people gathered there.
Someone in the crowd shouted, "No!"
"Too soon, right?" the actor quickly added.
Celebrities including Beyonce, her mother Tina Knowles, Star Jones, Whoopi Goldberg, Gayle King, Angela Bassett and Ben Stiller were spotted at the fundraiser.
