Chuck Norris's manager says actor was not at U.S. Capitol riot

Norris was the guest speaker for the day's event.

But, in reality, the "Chuck Norris" in the Capitol photos is an imposter. The 80-year-old actor's name was trending through Tuesday after a picture was uploaded to Twitter, showing aDonald Trumpsupporter next to a man with a likeness to Norris, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

One social media user shared a picture of a ginger man with facial hair, tweeting, "Wait, so are we just not going to mention the fact that Chuck Norris was at the MAGA insurrection?"

Chuck Norris has not provided any comments on the rumors, but despite historically being a Trump supporter, he did publish an article where he and his wife formally condemn the riots that took place at the US Capitol.

He said: 'Chuck remains on his range in Texas where he has been with his family'.

"This is not Chuck Norris and is a wannabe look-alike-although Chuck is much more handsome", a representative for the actor confirms.

Some social media users pointed out the man in the selfie has different colour eyes to the actor, but others were convinced it was him.

In the aftermath of Wednesday's attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters attempting to block Congress from affirming the outcome of the 2020 election in president-elect Joe Biden's favor, a photo appearing to show Chuck Norris with a Trump supporter started circulating on social media.

Protesters breached security and stormed the Capitol, wielding weapons and looting offices.

But his most iconic role was that of crime fighter Cordell Walker in the CBS action series Walker, Texas Ranger. He famously spoke out against President Obama's reelection in 2012 and voted against California Proposition 8, which makes same-sex marriage legal, in 2008.
