Actor and martial artist Chuck Norris had to deny he took part in the Capitol Hill riot last week after a photo of a man with striking resemblance appeared on social media.
After the uprising, a picture of a Donald Trump supporter who had similar traits to the 80-year-old star was uploaded to social media.
The image of the man who looked like Chuck Norris caused some confusion. Many online believed the actor actually took part in the uprising.
Norris is an '80s film legend who rose to fame after starring in Bruce Lee's film Way of the Dragon and becoming a staple of the action movie in films like Delta Force.
More recently it has become a popular meme that sheds its incredibly tough image with lines like "Chuck Noris doesn't turn the shower on, he stares at her until she starts crying."

At least two pictures taken by Trump supporters during the Capitol Hill uprising last week showed the man, who bore a remarkable resemblance to Chuck Norris
He is a staunch Republican Party believer, a Christian, and also supports gun rights.
Speaking yesterday, Norris' manager Erik Kritzer confirmed that the man in the picture wasn't Chuck Norris.
He said, "Chuck stays on his reach in Texas where he was with his family."
Kritzer added that "Chuck is way more handsome" than the man in the photo.
The actor and martial artist also visited his own Facebook page to deny that the man in the picture was him.
The actor and martial artist has also posted on his own social media accounts to deny that he was involved in the riot and to make it clear that there is no room for violence.
Norris' manager Erik Kritzer said the actor stayed on his Texas ranch with his family and did not participate in the riots
In a post uploaded yesterday, Chuck said, “I noticed that there was unfortunately a Chuck Norris look during the January 6th riot at the DC Capitol. It wasn't me and I wasn't there.
Let me make it clear that there is no room for violence of any kind in our society, including in connection with political protests, and that a peaceful transfer of power is fundamental to our democratic system of government.
"I am and always will be for law and order."
The attack on the US Capitol took place on Wednesday as members of Congress met to confirm Joe Biden's electoral college victory.
So far, at least 82 people have been arrested and more than 55 have been charged with the riot. Hundreds more are being hunted down by the authorities but have yet to be found, including 25 people under investigation for terrorism.
After the turn of the century, Chuck Norris became the subject of a number of internet memes depicting him as one of the biggest "tough guys" in the world.
In 2016, Chuck Norris spoke out for President Donald Trump, saying that Obama & # 39; madness & # 39; would have continued if Hillary Clinton had been elected to office.
In a comment written for the WND website, Norris wrote, “And worst of all, the US Supreme Court seats will be occupied by Hillary's candidates and their next decade of decisions will surely degrade or destroy the remains of our republic. & # 39;
Norris is best known for playing karate kicking attorney Cordell Walker in Walker, Texas Ranger, which ran from 1993-2001.
