Chuck Norris Denies Being At U.S. Capitol For Insurrection

The 80-year-old action star's manager said a man who attended the riot resembles Norris, but “Chuck is much more handsome.”

Although Twitter users are currently debating whether Chuck Norris attended last week’s insurrection on the U.S. Capitol, the action star insists he was nowhere near D.C. 

Photos taken during the Capitol riot show a man who looks enough like the 80-year-old actor to spark some confusion.

The Daily Dot noted that the Norris lookalike at the insurrection has brown eyes, while most photos of Norris suggest he has green eyes.

But while Norris has long been a Republican and endorsed Donald Trump in 2016, his manager Erik Kritzer says the photos taken during the insurrection are not of his client.

“This is not Chuck Norris,” Kritzer told the Associated Press. “Chuck remains on his range in Texas where he has been with his family.”

Kritzer conceded that the man in the photo, who has been identified as Matthew Bledsoe by People.com, resembled Norris. But, he insisted, “Chuck is much more handsome.”
