Following allegations that he was part of the rowdy group that invaded Washington DC, the veteran actor denounced the claims through a post on his Twitter account saying:

''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.''

His representative also refuted claims that were doing rounds on social media.

Through a statement sent to NBC, the star's representative said:

"This is not Chuck Norris and is a wannabe look-alike, although Chuck is much more handsome".

Someone posted on Twitter a photo showing a demonstrator posing for a selfie with a man resembling the action star.

The rally was organised by President Donald Trump supporters who were opposing the US presidential election results.

Loyal fans of the legendary actor commented on his post with some questioning why someone would assume that the actor would stoop that low.

''Chuck Norris has two legs. Left called law and right called order.''

''If Chuck was actually there, not a single person would have gotten by him and into the Capitol.''

I appreciate that. And maybe it‘d be a good idea to perform a speech like Arnie did, because I‘m sure that action heroes are the few ones that might be heard by the „revolutionists“. I really think that could help. For America, for the world, and for peace.
