Lead singer, Jay Kay, of Jamiroquai, made it clear he wasn’t the Viking seen rioting at the U.S. Capitol after his name started trending on Twitter.
“Good Morning Washington, loving the headgear, but not sure that’s my crowd,” the lead singer of the English funk band tweeted after people started posting about how similar the performer looked to the man dressed up as a Viking seen in videos after rioters stormed the Capitol building. The comments were noted by Page Six in a piece published Thursday. (RELATED: Celebrities, Political Personalities Denounce Violent Insurrection At Capitol Hill)
