Chris Rock was spotted in public for the first time since being slapped in the face by Will Smith at the 94th Oscars on Sunday (March 27).

The comedian was seen exiting a van at the Boston airport as he starts his "Ego Death" comedy tour –– the tickets for which have surged in the last few days since the shocking on-stage incident.

TMZ captured the photos and asked the 57-year-old if he would answer a few questions, but Chris didn't respond. Click HERE to see the photos obtained by TMZ.

The sighting comes a day after Chris' younger brother, Tony Rock, tweeted that he didn't approve of Will's apology for the slap, and that Diddy was off-base in confirming that the two had made up.

Will walked on stage while Chris was presenting the Academy Award for Best Documentary after the SNL-alum referenced Jada Pinkett-Smith's hair. Jada has come out publicly detailing the hair loss she's experienced since being diagnoses with alopecia.

A rep for Diddy wants to clear his side of things up, telling TMZ that he never said the comedians settled the feud. "I never confirmed they had reconciled. I said, 'as brothers they will work it out and let's move on with love," Diddy told TMZ.
