No, that wasn't Chuck Norris at Capitol riot, says rep

No, that wasn't Chuck Norris at Capitol riot, says rep”

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.

Several social media images went viral over the last few days, apparently showing Chuck Norris at the Capitol, posing for selfies with rioters.

A rep for Chuck Norris told Fox News that the martial artist/actor was not at the Capitol riot last week. There is no room for violence of any kind in our society.

Another user put the photo through a facial-recognition software and the results came back with a 85% match, which according to the user, means that although the man looks like Norris, he isn't actually him.

He said: 'Chuck remains on his range in Texas where he has been with his family'. "I am and always will be for Law and Order".

It has been almost a week since Pro-Trump rioters stormed the United States Capitol Building, and now rumors have spread about one celebrity being in attendance.

The 80-year-old actor has not made any other statements about the riots or attended rallies during the pandemic, Kritzer said.

In 2016, Chuck Norris voiced his support for President Donald Trump, saying that Obama "craziness" would have continued if Hillary Clinton had been elected into office. 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.

"Walker, Texas Ranger", in which Norris played karate-kicking lawman Cordell Walker, ran on CBS from 1993 to 2001.
