Today a rep for the 80-year-old actor confirmed to PEOPLE that Norris did not attend the riots on January 6. The confirmation comes after a photo on social media went viral this week that showed a man at the riots who looked very much like Norris.
"This is not Chuck Norris and is a wannabe lookalike although Chuck is much more handsome," said the actor's rep Erik Kritzer. "Chuck remains on his range in Texas where he has been with his family."
But while Norris was not there, the actor is a longtime Republican and did endorse Trump during the 2016 U.S. election. So the idea of him being at the riots isn't completely crazy.
Wait, so are we just not going to mention the fact that Chuck Norris was at the MAGA insurrection? pic.twitter.com/aIukJpoCmF— DevinNunesTHEDragQueen (@NunesDrag) January 12, 2021

I have no doubt Chuck Norris is MAGA but this guy isn't him. Very good lookalike but too young. pic.twitter.com/kD8bXNRzlW— Danielle Huss (@daniellehuss) January 12, 2021
