Chris Rock’s brother, Tony, fires a warning shot at Will Smith

'You go hit my mother-f***ken brother cos your b***h gave you the side eye?'- Tony Rock said during his comedy show.


Tony Rock is taking no prisoners.

The brother of comedian Chris Rock, who was at the receiving end of a humiliating slap from Men In Black actor Will Smith on the global stage of the Oscars, has fired a warning shot at Smith.

During a comedy show the weekend after the infamous slap, Tony, who is one of six Rock brothers appeared pumped and emotional when he opened the show.

“Let’s set some ground rules ya’ll,” Tony told the audience. “If I say anything tonight anyone has a f**king with, you got one mother f**king option you can do with it,” said Tony pacing the stage

“Absolutely nothing. Cos if you think you gonna walk up on this stage, this ain’t the mother f**king Oscars.”

“And you if walk up on here, you ain’t nominated for shit with these mother f**king hands,” he declared to a cheering audience.

Tony warned that while he didn’t want to address the issue at his show, he’s now decided otherwise for the rest of his shows.

“You go hit my mother-f**ken brother cos your b***h gave you the side-eye?”

He goes on to tell the audience there were more Rock brothers- excluding himself and Chris, and gave some insight to the Rock family’s feelings about the matter.

“I ain’t got a lot to lose…ya’ll might never see me again on television,” he said.

While Rock himself is yet to speak publicly on the incident, Tony wasted no time sharing his feelings on the matter.

During a recent Twitter Q&A, Tony was asked whether he accepted Smith’s apology to his brother, to which he replied: “No.”

Meanwhile, Smith who is facing disciplinary action from the Academy, resigned from the Oscars, saying he was heartbroken.
