Chris Rock’s brother spoke out against Diddy’s claim.
Last night (March 29), Chris Rock’s brother, Tony, held a Q&A on Twitter. He responded to numerous questions regarding Will Smith slapping his brother onstage at the Oscars this past weekend.
One particular question about Diddy’s reported confirmation that Smith and Rock had already made up the day following the ceremony has garnered a lot of attention.
A Twitter user asked, “@TONYROCK so Diddy was lying when he said Chris and Will made up that night and are good now?”
Tony simply responded, “Yep.”
As aforementioned, on the morning following the slap (March 28), Diddy reportedly told Page Six that Smith and Rock had already made amends. “That’s not a problem. That’s over. I can confirm that.” Diddy supposedly told this to the publication at Vanity Fair‘s post-Oscars party. “It’s all love. They’re brothers,” he added.
Smith shocked the entertainment world Sunday night (March 27) by slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars after Rock made a joke about Jada Pinkett’s struggles with alopecia. Smith apologized directly to Rock early Monday evening in a statement published to his Instagram.
“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris,” he began” I was out of line and I was wrong. 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.”
He continued: “I would also like to apologize to the Academy, the producers of the show, all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams Family and my King Richard Family. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been an otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us.”
Rock has yet to issue any statement or comments on what took place.
