Chuck Norris called a ‘MAGA terrorist’ who ‘belongs in prison’ over posing for picture at US Capitol riot… except it wasn’t him
Twitter users latched onto an image from the day of the US Capitol riot and claimed it showed the martial artist with a man identified as Matthew Bledsoe moments in Washington DC moments before the Capitol was raided.
Wait, so are we just not going to mention the fact that Chuck Norris was at the MAGA insurrection? pic.twitter.com/aIukJpoCmF— DevinNunesTHEDragQueen (@NunesDrag) January 12, 2021
Here’s the full Instagram story from Matt Bledsoe (a violent domestic abuser who told his 6 year old to kill herself, which you can read about here: https://t.co/ePfFp3lEfl) pic.twitter.com/mWKkurKs1g— DevinNunesTHEDragQueen (@NunesDrag) January 12, 2021
Though the unidentified bearded man bears a resemblance to Norris, many were quick to point out differences between them, including age – Norris is 80 years old.
I have no doubt Chuck Norris is MAGA but this guy isn't him. Very good lookalike but too young. pic.twitter.com/kD8bXNRzlW— Danielle Huss (@daniellehuss) January 12, 2021

The original Instagram photo was accompanied by text that read ‘Chuck Norris’ – and that was all the proof liberal critics needed to slam the star, who has a history of supporting the Republican Party and President Donald Trump.
“Chuck is a racist, Nazi-loving d-list Republican. He belongs in prison for insurrection, along with the rest of the MAGA mob,” one Twitter user wrote in reaction to the photo.
“The new Chuck Norris movie where he stages an attempted coup and goes home a traitor looks terrible,” another wrote.
“Chuck Norris doesn’t fight #MAGATerrorists… he joins them. No joke,” another added.
How are white people really trying to act surprised that Chuck Norris is a Trump supporter? pic.twitter.com/LJkIQIwzq6— BarrettTV on Youtube🤡 (@ThatsSoBarrett) January 12, 2021

Twitter seems shocked Chuck Norris was seen at the insurrection. Sorry guys, he's a well known douchebag. pic.twitter.com/CFmoW42X8P— Stephen Hopkins (@lokiesteve) January 12, 2021
But those seeking to cancel Norris were duped. A spokesperson for the star confirmed in a public statement that it was a “wannabe look-alike” in the photo and Norris did not attend the Save America rally and had been in Texas with his family.
“This is not Chuck Norris [but] a wannabe look-alike – although Chuck is much more handsome,” the spokesperson said. “Chuck remains on his range in Texas, where he has been with his family.”
Other public figures who were either part of the storming of the US Capitol or in attendance at the pro-Trump Save America rally on the same day have faced major backlash. Singer Ariel Pink, for instance, was dropped by his record label after it was reported he was there. Pink admitted to being at the rally, but said he was not part of the mob that entered the Capitol.Also on rt.com ‘Furry protester’ identified as son of Brooklyn Supreme Court judge arrested for taking part in US Capitol riot
