Hollywood star Chuck Norris has been forced to deny he was present at the riots in Washington DC last week after a photo of a lookalike was posted online.

The violent siege of the US Capitol led to the deaths of five people, including a police officer.

So far, at least 82 people have been arrested and more than 55 have been charged over the insurrection.

In the aftermath of Wednesday's attack on the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters attempting to block Congress from affirming the outcome of the 2020 election in president-elect Joe Biden's favor, a photo appearing to show Chuck Norris with a Trump supporter started circulating on social media. There is no room for the violence of any kind in our society.

Kritzer acknowledged that the man photographed looked somewhat like Norris but said, "Chuck is much more handsome".

Norris is a long-time supporter of the Republican party.

The 80-year-old actor has not made any other statements about the riots or attended rallies during the pandemic, Kritzer said.

Despite his problematic anti-gay views, even Chuck Norris drew the line at supporting the "Trump terrorists" who stormed the Capitol.

'I am and always will be for Law and Order'.

Norris, a former martial artist, retired from the ring before turning to teaching.

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