Chuck Norris Denies Being At Capitol Attack After Lookalike's Image Goes Viral

The violence on January 6 led to the deaths of five people, including Capitol Police officer Officer Brian D. Sicknick, 42, who died at 9:30 p.m. Thursday from injuries he sustained "while physically engaging with protesters" during the rampage.

Photos of a Norris lookalike began circulating on social media this week as campaigns were underway to identify violent participants in Washington, D.C.

Erik Kritzer, a spokesman for the "Walker, Texas Ranger" actor, insisted that his client was thousands of miles away from the U.S. Capitol last week.

While some highlighted the fact that Norris has light-coloured eyes, unlike the man in the photo who has dark brown eyes, others pointed out that Norris is 80-years-old and the man in the picture appears much younger.

However, the Walker, Texas Ranger shut down the chatter on Wednesday NZT, saying he was "always for law and order".

A rep for the actor also denied the rumours. "Chuck remains on his ranch in Texas where he has been with his family", the representative said in a statement.

Norris is among the most well known conservatives in entertainment and twice backed former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee during presidential bids in 2008 and 2016. The new image virtually confirms that the man in the viral image is not Norris, hence making it safe to say that the presumption is false.

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 found big-screen success in films such as Lone Wolf McQuade, Code of Honor, Missing in Action and Delta Force, all staples of late-night cable TV.
