The debate began due to several images that circulated on the internet in which the famous American actor Chuck Norris was supposedly seen among the supporters of Donald Trump who assaulted the Capitol
“I saw this on my Facebook today. Chuck Norris was in DC proudly supporting Maga and Trump “, wrote a user on Twitter and his message was accompanied by a photograph in which three people were seen, one of them very similar to the martial arts legend.
Another user on Twitter wrote: “This is Chuck Norris with Matt Bledsoe, owner of Primetime Mover in Memphis. Matt is a terrorist who broke into the Capitol. This was taken moments before, ”said writer and human rights defender Fiona Adorno.
But his accusation was misplaced: upon learning the images, Chuck Norris had to go out to deny them.
“It wasn’t me and I wasn’t there. There is no place for violence of any kind in our society. I am and always will be with law and order“the actor wrote on his Twitter account.
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.

Erik Kritzer, the actor’s representative, also came out to deny
his presence in that place and assured that he was truly on his ranch in Texas, thousands of miles away.
The comparisons between the real Chuck Norris, who is 80 years old, and the man who certainly has a great resemblance did not take long.
