In response to fan questions on Twitter, Tony Rock stated that he had not accepted Will Smith’s apology. The actor struck Rock’s brother, comedian Chris, onstage at this year’s Academy Awards. Tony responded, “React,” when asked what he intended to do in response to Smith’s actions.
Rock, like his brother Chris, is a comedian who used Twitter to respond to several messages inquiring about the astounding Oscars occurrence. Tony Rock has confirmed that Chris Rock and Will Smith did not reconcile on the night of the Academy Awards.
After Page Six learned from rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs that the two would be reconciling and resolving their differences following the awards event, reports began to swirl online that the two were discussing their differences.
Tony additionally addressed allegations that the slap was fabricated. Because a purportedly high-quality image circulating online depicted Chris Rock wearing a face cushion to mitigate the blow, internet users suspected the viral moment was fabricated.
Tony also claimed that he disagrees with Smith’s apology, and when asked if he would “fight fire with fire” or take the “professional route” in response to the Oscars rejection, Tony responded, “It’s on bro.”
