NEW YORK (AP) – The manager for actor Chuck Norris says the “Walker, Texas Ranger” star was not present at last week’s deadly riot at the Capitol in Washington. A photo of a man resembling Norris apparently with a member of the mob began trending online. But Norris manager Erik Kritzer tells The Associated Press on Tuesday the person in the photo is not Norris. Kritzer acknowledged that the man photographed looked somewhat like Norris but says “Chuck is much more handsome.” Norris also confirmed on twitter the person at the Capitol was not him.
“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.” Your friend, Chuck Norris
“Walker, Texas Ranger,” in which Norris played karate-kicking lawman Cordell Walker, ran on CBS from 1993 to 2001. In 2016, he announced his support for President Donald Trump.
