Chris Rock was spotted grim during a solo walk in New York City after his brother Keith toppled Will Smith and said the Academy should strip him of an Oscar a week and a half after the infamous slap quarrel.
On Tuesday morning, the 57-year-old comedian was walking alone, his hands tucked into a bomber jacket, in the Big Apple.
Meanwhile, his 42-year-old younger brother Kenny told the Los Angeles Times that he had trouble watching repeatedly at the now infamous moment involving his brother from last week’s Oscars, and that he should be stripped of the trophy for best male role.
He said: “It eats me up when I watch it over and over again because you’ve seen an attack on a loved one and there’s nothing you can do about it.

“Every time I watch a video, it’s like a performance that keeps coming back to my head.”
Kenny continued to express his hostility to the actions of the actor from list A.
He said, “My brother didn’t threaten him and you just didn’t respect him at the time.
“You just humiliated him in front of millions of people watching the show.”
On Friday, Will left the Academy, calling his actions during the ceremony “shocking, painful and unforgivable,” adding that he would agree to any additional consequences passed by the Academy’s Board of Governors.
“It Eats Me”: meanwhile, his 42-year-old younger brother Kenny told the Los Angeles Times that he had trouble watching repeatedly at the now infamous moment involving his brother from last week’s Oscars and that he needs to be deprived of the best Trophy actor
“The list of those I have offended is long and includes Chris, his family, many of my dear friends and loved ones, everyone present and the global audience at home,” Smith said. “I betrayed the trust of the Academy. I deprived other nominees and winners of the opportunity to celebrate and be honored for their extraordinary work. I have a broken heart. “
Chris Kenny’s brother was asked if he accepted Will’s apology, and said he didn’t particularly consider that it took so long to get him out of the star I Am Legend.
He explained, “I could have looked at it differently if he had first apologized when he came on stage, cried and accepted the award, but he didn’t, so right away, it tells me it’s something else ».
Kenny also expressed his disappointment that the Academy had not taken more action to remove Will from the scene, saying “He should have been taken out of there.”

“I hold them responsible for it. He could go up there and do with my brother whatever you want. It could have been much worse than what he did. ”
Kenny did not strike, because he also said: “In my opinion, he embarrassed himself with this and his legacy.”
It comes a week after Kenny and Chris ’brother Tony claimed Didi lied when he claimed Will buried his ax with his brother and sister after that shocking Oscar slap.

Will caused shock around the world when he hit Chris after a comedian joked about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who talked about hair loss due to baldness.
In just 40 minutes, Will won the Best Actor award for his role as Richard Williams, the father of tennis legends Serena and Venus, in the biopic King Richard.
On Monday night, Will apologized to Chris, saying his behavior was “unacceptable and unacceptable.”
The star wrote in a message on Instagram that he was “embarrassed” by his actions, which shocked the ceremony attendees, producers and spectators, and sparked a heated debate that divided both first-graders and spectators.
“Violence in all its forms is poisonous and destructive,” he wrote.
“My behavior at yesterday’s Oscars was unacceptable and unforgivable. Jokes about me are part of the job, but Jade’s joke was too strong for me and I reacted emotionally.
“I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was wrong and I was wrong. I am embarrassed and my actions did not show the person I want to be. There is no place for violence in the world of love and kindness. ”
Will then forgave the organizers and producers of the show.
Chris did not respond to Will’s apology, and the comedian has not yet commented on the incident publicly – but a few hours after the slap it turned out that he decided not to draw up a report to the police against the actor.
