Chris Rock’s brother Tony recently took the stage and delivered some harsh words for Will Smith in response to the slap seen ‘round the world.

“If you think you gonna to walk up on this stage, this ain’t the motherfucking Oscars,” he said while on stage, perPage Six. “And if you walk your ass up here, you ain’t nominated for shit but these motherfucking hands! Oh, we going to pop the rest of the year, n***a. Every time you see me do a show, pop!” 

“I didn’t want to start the show like that,” he continued, throwing his hands in the air. “You gonna hit my motherfucking brother because your bitch gave you a side-eye?” After strutting across the stage, Tony declared, “Oh, it’s a lot of Rock brothers, y’all ain’t know, it’s a lot of Rock brothers.” 

In case you were living under a rock this past week, Smith walked on stage after Rock made a joke in regards to his wife Jada’s hair and slapped him across the face. The King Richard actor returned to his seat and shouted “Keep my wife’s name out your fucking mouth” twice in the comedian’s direction. 

In the days that followed the incident, Smith issued a direct apology to Rock, calling his actions “out of line” and “wrong,” adding, “I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.” 

Shortly thereafter, Tony said he didn’t accept Smith’s apology and rejected Diddy’s initial claim that both men had settled their differences. Chris backed his brother during a recent shows, stating that he hasn’t “talked to anyone despite what you may have heard.”
