Chuck Norris has denied involvement in the US Capitol riots from last week. It comes after a photo surfaced online of a Chuck lookalike.
“It wasn’t me and I wasn’t there,” the martial arts icon tweeted.
“There is no room for violence of any kind in our society. I am and always will be for Law and Order.”
He shared a photo of himself with the tweet, perhaps to point out that he’s a fair bit older than the lookalike.
I recently learned there was a Chuck Norris lookalike at the DC Capitol riots. It wasn’t me and I wasn’t there. There is no room for violence of any kind in our society. I am and always will be for Law and Order.

The drama started after a photo was uploaded of two Trump supporters at the riots.
“Wait, so are we not going to mention the fact that Chuck Norris was at the MAGA insurrection?” they said.
One of the said supporters obviously looked fairly similar to Chuck Norris.
Norris’ manager shared a statement with Associated Press after the image went viral.
“This is not Chuck Norris and is a wannabe lookalike although Chuck is much more handsome,” he said.
“Chuck remains on his ranch in Texas, where he has been with his family.”
“I have no doubt Chuck Norris is MAGA but this guy isn’t him,” said one Twitter user, posting side-by-side shots of Norris and his lookalike.
“Very good lookalike but too young.”
