Tony Rock Confirmed That His Brother, Chris Rock, Did Not Reconcile With Will Smith After Being Slapped

Conversations need to be had.

On Monday, Will Smith issued an apology to Chris Rock for his "unacceptable and inexcusable" behavior at the 2022 Oscars, which included slapping the comedian and yelling profanities from his seat.

And many thought Chris and Will had reconciled, but according to Chris's brother, Tony Rock, that couldn't be further from the truth.

On Tuesday, Tony held a Twitter Q&A where he answered fan-submitted questions. When asked how he felt about Will's apology, he revealed he does not approve of it.

The tone of the Twitter convo seemed surprising, since Diddy publicly announced at the Vanity Fair Oscars party that Chris and Will settled their differences. "That’s not a problem," Diddy told Page Six. "That’s over. I can confirm that. It's all love. They're brothers."

So, when someone asked Tony if Diddy lied about it, Tony responded, "Yep."

A friend of Diddy's later confirmed that the music mogul spoke to Will and Chris separately after the incident took place and that Will and Chris did not speak to each other. "He went up to them both privately to have a few words," a source told People. "Chris was in shock and Diddy tried to give him encouraging words, and then he went over to Will at his seat."

In fact, Tony said he's still "waiting" for Will to speak directly to Chris and the rest of the Rock family, who Will has known for decades.

Tony went on to answer more questions about that night, like if he thought the slap was staged.

...although in a later tweet, when someone asked if he'd fight fire with fire or be professional, Tony said, "It's on, bro."

Tony answered 20 questions during his weekly Q&A, ending with this message:

Be sure to watch 'Good Hair' since the narrative is now changed to all my bro does is disrespect women of color.
