Police in New York are investigating a suspicious package similar to those sent to top Democratic leaders that was addressed to actor Robert De Niro, law enforcement officials told CNN

The package appeared to be addressed to 375 Greenwich St., which holds the restaurant Tribeca Grill and the offices of De Niro’s Tribeca Films. 

De Niro has frequently been critical of President Trump, most notably at the 2018 Tony Awards when he received a standing ovation for repeatedly declaring “f— Trump” on stage.

Packages containing explosive devices were intercepted late Tuesday and early Wednesday before reaching the residences of former President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and former Attorney General Eric Holder were also targeted, although Holder’s was sent back to the listed return address, a Florida office for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.).

A similar package containing a pipe bomb was also delivered to CNN’s New York City offices. It was addressed to former CIA Director John Brennan, a frequent Trump critic who is a commentator at MSNBC.
