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

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

In a statement to PEOPLE, the 80-year-old actor's rep, Erik Kritzer, refuted claims that Norris attended the riots after a photo circulated on social media of a man that looks similar to Norris posing with a Trump supporter - who has since been identified as Matthew Bledsoe - seemingly before the violent insurrection on the Capitol building began.

Despite his problematic anti-gay views, even Chuck Norris drew the line at supporting the "Trump terrorists" who stormed the Capitol. A number of rioters have been arrested and charged, and at least 25 people are under terrorism investigation.

Chuck Norris' manager says the "Walker, Texas Ranger" star was not present at last week's deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol.

A rep for Chuck Norris told Fox News that the martial artist and actor was not at the Capitol riot last week.

USA Today reported that a Twitter user shared an Instagram story screenshot that was a Capitol rioter selfie with someone that looked like Norris.

"This is not Chuck Norris and is a wannabe look-alike although Chuck is much more handsome", said Kritzer.

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

Norris has also publicly endorsed the disgraced anti-LGBT+ Republican Ray Moore, a man who faced a judicial inquiry for illegally ordering probate judges to enforce a same-sex marriage ban in Alabama. "Let me be clear that there is no room for violence of any kind in our society, including in the context of political protests".

'I am and always will be for Law and Order'. Authorities continue to search for others who were involved.

Norris is best known for playing the karate-kicking lawman Cordell Walker in "Walker, Texas Ranger" which ran between 1993 and 2001.

Norris did support Trump during the president's campaign in 2016.
