Who knew that Mickey Rourke still had all this fight in him? The 67-year-od actor had some harsh words for fellow actor Robert De Niro. He promised to embarrass the veteran actor “100%” next time he sees him. Taking the fight to Instagram, fans thought Rourke had lost his mind when he started verbally attacking “The Irishman” star. “Hey Robert De Niro, that's right I am talking to you, you big f--king crybaby,” Rourke began. "A friend of mine just recently told me that a few months back you're quoted as saying to newspapers ‘Mickey Rourke’s a liar he talks all kind of s--t.’”

What made Rourke get so mad so quick? Apparently, the 76-year-old actor has had a problem with Rourke for decades but with the “Taxi Driver” actor bringing him up in a recent interview the feud has been reignited. Rourke elaborated in the now-deleted post, “Listen Mr. Tough Guy in the movies, you're the 1st person that ever called me a liar and it was in a newspaper,” he continued with a few interesting threats for De Niro. “Let me tell you something, you punk ass, when I see you I swear to God on my Grandmother, on my brother and all my dogs, I gonna embarrass you severally 100%. Mickey Rourke, as God is my witness.”

He didn’t stop there, “The Wrestler” actor hopped into the comments of his own post to add more fuel to the fire threatening to come at De Niro on his own turf, the streets of New York City. “I’ll be relocating moving back to NYC in the next few months this encounter will for sure happen.” Rourke recently shared with fans that he was supposed to star in the Netflix film “The Irishman” alongside De Niro but the veteran actor blocked him from securing whatever role he was going to play.

No Roles, No Money

“Marty Scorsese wanted to meet me for a movie with Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro,” shared the actor in September when he appeared on the Italian talk show “Live – Non e la D'Urso.” How was Rourke so sure that De Niro had anything to do with it? “The casting person told my manager that Robert De Niro said he refused to work with me in a movie,” shared Rourke. A Few producers from the film and the casting director claimed that Rourke was never a contender for the film and was not even “thought of, discussed, or considered” for their movie.

Rourke admitted on the talk show that he was a little hurt by De Niro’s actions and shared that this is not the first time the veteran actor has snubbed him. On the set of 1987’s “Angel Heart”, De Niro requested that they don’t talk to one another as a way to stay in character “It hurt my feelings a little bit 'cause I looked up to him.” De Niro has not responded to the accusation, but Rourke continues to taunt the actor. His latest IG post is him practicing boxing and he captioned it, “You can run, but you can’t hide.” Hmm, wonder who that message is for.
