While some pointed out that that the actor/martial artist has light-colored eyes while the man in the photo has dark brown eyes, others drew attention to the fact that Norris was 80 years old and the man in the picture does not appear to look that age.

Alongside the photo, Bledsoe wrote, "Chuck Norris".

A photo circulating on social media claiming that actor Chuck Norris was among the mob that stormed the Capitol last weekend is not correct, the actor's manager says. Per the New York Post, five people were killed during the violent riots.

However, the Walker, Texas Ranger shut down the chatter on Wednesday NZT, saying he was "always for law and order".

'Let me be clear that there is no room for violence of any kind in our society, including in the context of political protests and that a peaceful transition of power is fundamental to our democratic system of government. "This is not Chuck Norris", Norris manager Erik Kritzer told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Norris "remains on his ranch in Texas where he has been with his family", said the spokesperson.

It has been almost a week since Pro-Trump rioters stormed the United States Capitol Building, and now rumors have spread about one celebrity being in attendance.

Norris is a longtime Republican and endorsed Trump, 74, during the 2016 presidential election against Hillary Clinton.

He moved into acting in his mid-30s at the behest of film star Steve McQueen.

The action drama aired on the network for nine seasons from 1993 to 2001 and generated plenty of fodder for millennials, who gleefully turned the show's glib one-liners and other Norris quotes into viral memes.
