Chuck Norris Took Part In Deadly Capital Riots? We Think Not

Famed action star Chuck Norris was accused on Twitter of participating in the deadly siege that took place on January 6 at the Capitol. A Twitter user posted a photo of a man, who admittedly resembles the famed martial artist, writing in the caption, “Wait, so are we just not going to mention the fact that Chuck Norris was at the MAGA insurrection?”

A second user added another photo to the thread, using facial recognition software to compare and contrast a photo of the mystery man and a red carpet photo of Norris. The software indicated there was an 85% match, though the commenter admitted, “Personally, I'm 85% sure it's not him.”

Norris' Spokesperson Sets The Record Straight

Everything that’s posted on social media should be taken with a grain of salt since so often the rumors propagated on those sites turn out to be totally false or utterly made up. Though there is a passing resemblance between the two men, Though Chuck Norris has been vocally supportive of President Donald Trump, the action star most assuredly did not take part in the protest or the deadly riot that claimed several lives.
