Onstage at a comedy show on Friday night, comedian Tony Rock slammed Will Smith for his viral slap at the Oscars of his brother Chris Rock.
As part of his “No Remorse” comedy tour, Tony, one of Chris’ younger brothers, performed standup at the PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Tony slammed Smith for storming the stage and slapping Chris, a presenter at the 94th Academy Awards, after he joked about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s bald head, referencing “G.I. Jane,” in a video shared on social media. Alopecia has been a problem for Pinkett Smith.
“If you think you gonna to walk up on this stage, this ain’t the motherf–king Oscars!” Tony told the audience in a video shared by The Shade Room’s Instagram.
“And if you walk your a– up here, you ain’t nominated for s–t but these motherf–king hands! Oh, we going to pop the rest of the year. Every time you see me do a show, pop!” Tony cracked.
Tony went on to say he “didn’t want to start the show like that!”
“You gonna hit my motherf–king brother because your b—h gave you a side-eye?
Tony, 47, continued by saying, “There are a lot of Rock brothers.” Chris, who is 57 years old, is the oldest of a family of seven children. Tony, Andre, Brian, Kenny, and Jordan are his brothers, while Andi is his sister. In 2006, Charles, the comedian’s half-brother, died.
In the meanwhile, at a Wednesday night comedy concert in Boston, Rock addressed the subject for the first time.
“At some point I’ll talk about that s—, and it will be serious, and it will be funny,” Rock continued.
Prior to his comedy gig on Friday night, Tony shared his take on Smith’s slap on Twitter, telling fans he found the “King Richard” actor’s behavior “foul.”
