Chris Rock’s brother called Will Smith out after Kenny Rock signed on to a celebrity boxing match.
Chris Rock’s brother, Will Smith, is interested in fighting for the family’s honor and has offered to take part in a boxing match with Will Smith.
The King Richard actor, 53 years old, was a sensation when he stormed onto the stage and made headlines all over the globe after a joke about Jada pinkett Smith, 50, was told.
Chris’s 42-year-old brother Kenny has now challenged Will to get on the ground and fight him.
The younger Rock sibling signed a contract to take part in a celebrity boxing match on June 11. She is keen to become a Hollywood superstar.
He shared his story TMZWednesday, April 23rd: “I should get in the ring with Will Smith. I could take him down!”
He admitted that the size difference between them wouldn’t matter and said: “I’ll let the hands do the talking.”
Kenny said that his brother keeps a low profile after the incident but that Everybody Hates Chris is still narrating the story. “doing great”.
“I haven’t seen him but we’ve talked,”Kenny said.
Soon after the slap, he attacked Will’s behavior and appeared unsure whether Fresh Prince star will actually receive the punishment that he was handed by the Academy.
Kenny continued: “We have to see if he’s actually going to get the 10 year ban. They might say a 10 year ban, but after three years they’ll think that we might have forgot about it and slide him in there after two years, after three years, after five year, so we have to see that these people do what they say they’ll do.”
He claims he doubts Chris would accept Will’s apology via social media.
Will wrote the following after the event “Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night’s Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable.”
He said: “I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness.”
Kenny said that Tony, the other brother of the pair, has taken the incident personally. However, he insists that he isn’t blaming him for it.

He continued: “I’m taking it personally but I’m more like a quiet storm.”
Chris was earlier in the week asked about the incident, but decided to laugh about it.
According to a California newspaper, the Desert SunChris said it: “I’m OK, I have a whole show and I’m not talking about that [the Will Smith slap] until I get paid.
“It’s good to be alive. My hearing was restored.” he added but didn’t dive deeper into the situation.
