Chris Rock's brother said the comedian and actor Will Smith didn't actually reconcile after the Oscars.
During the 94th Academy Awards on Sunday night, Rock was hit onstage by Will Smith, who was minutes away from being named best actor, after the comedian made a joke alluding to Jada Pinkett Smith's shaved head. Pinkett Smith has talked about having the hair-loss condition alopecia.
After the confrontation, Diddy told Page Six at the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party that the pair made up, saying, "It's all love."
"That's not a problem. That's over. I can confirm that," Diddy said, per the media outlet.
However, during a Q&A on Twitter Tuesday night, Rock's brother, Tony Rock, claimed Diddy was incorrect about the pair making up after the confrontation, which he described as "foul."
"So Diddy was lying when he said Chris and Will made up that night and are good now?" a Twitter user asked Tony Rock during the Q&A, to which he responded: "Yep."
On Monday, Smith released an apology statement, describing his behavior at the awards show as "unacceptable and inexcusable."
"Jokes at my expense are a part of the job, but a joke about Jada's medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally," Smith said in the statement. "I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong."
He added: "I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be."
Chris Rock has yet to publicly respond following the incident.
