Action star and martial artist Chuck Norris did not take part in the riot at the U.S. Capitol, his manager says.

A photo of a man who resembled Norris apparently with a member of the mob began trending online.

“This is not Chuck Norris,” Norris manager Erik Kritzer told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

“Chuck remains on his range in Texas where he has been with his family,” Kritzer said. He acknowledged that the man photographed looked somewhat like Norris but “Chuck is much more handsome.”

In 2016, Norris announced his support for President Donald Trump.

The karate champion who is a black belt in several disciplines and founded his own, Chun Kuk Do, was Professional Middleweight Karate champion for six years starting in 1968. He then transitioned to become a successful actor. He starred in “Walker, Texas Ranger,” in which he played karate-kicking lawman Cordell Walker. It ran on CBS from 1993 to 2001.

In recent years, he has become almost as famous for the jokes and memes he’s inspired as he has for his career.

Famous one-liners associated with Norris, who boasts a tough-guy image are:

  • Chuck Norris doesn’t read books. He stares them down until he gets the information he wants.
  • Time waits for no man. Unless that man is Chuck Norris.
  • When God said, “Let there be light!” Chuck said, “Say Please.”
  • Chuck Norris doesn’t do pushups, he pushes the Earth down.

So far, there haven’t been one-liners about what would have happened if Norris had actually appeared at the U.S. Capitol riot, perhaps because the wound is still too raw. Once emotions cool, possible contenders could be:

If Chuck Norris had really stormed the Capitol…

  • …it would’ve turned lowercase.
  • …it would’ve not only overturned this election, but every other one in history. Of every country.
  • …it would’ve turned the Electoral College back into an Electoral High School.
