Chris Rock's younger brother is speaking out after his now-infamous Oscars moment between Will Smith on Sunday (March 27).

Tony Rock hopped on Twitter on Tuesday (March 29), addressing the slap the King Richard handed Chris, who was presenting the award for Best Documentary when he referenced Jada Pinkett-Smith's hair on stage, prompting Will to get up and slap him before returning to his seat and warning the Spiral actor, "Keep my wife's name out of your f––king mouth," twice.

The younger Rock actor also responded to questions about the slap, Will's apology he posted on Instagram Monday (March 28) and Diddy's involvement in it all.

"Do you approve of the apology?" one Twitter user asked, to which Tony simply replied, "No."

"So Diddy was lying when he said Chris and Will made up that night and are good now?" another person asked. "Yep," Tony wrote back.

If you recall, Diddy told Page Six that the beef between the comedians was "over" and that everything had been worked out. But, reps for the hip-hop mogul walked back the comments, explaining that the Bad Boys founder had spoken to each actor individually when he said the situation was handled, and that at the time neither men had spoken to the other.

Will apologized during his acceptance speech for Best Actor and again online. Jada posted Tuesday (March 29), declaring the moment, "a season of healing" that she approves of.

Reports also indicate that ticket sales for Chris Rock's upcoming comedy tour have surged following the incident.
