A word to the wise: Never keep Robert De Niro waiting even if you do happen to be one of the biggest superstars in the world. 

The two-time Oscar winner certainly didn’t hold his tongue last weekend around Jay-Z, who had apparently angered the actor by failing to return his many calls. According to witnesses on the scene, Robert publicly called Jay out for his lack of phone etiquette while the two were at Leonardo DiCaprio’s star-studded birthday party last Saturday in New York City.

“Bob was sitting at a table, and when Jay-Z went over to say hello, De Niro told Jay that he never called him back,” a source told Page Six.

It seems that Jay-Z had agreed to record a song for the Tribeca Film Festival (which Robert founded), but never returned The Godfather actor’s calls when he reached out to talk details. 

“Bob wasn’t in any mood to make polite conversation. He told Jay that if somebody calls you six times, you call them back,” an eyewitness added. “It doesn’t matter who you are, that is just rude. De Niro kept telling him that he thinks he’s the man, but that he was disrespectful.”
