The actor says he didn’t take part in the riots himself, but celebrated a “patriot” who did.
In a tweet distancing himself from the Capitol riots physically, “Gilmore Girls” alum David Sutcliffe appeared to also heap praise on one of the insurrectionists.
Over the weekend, the actor — who played Rory’s dad, Christopher Hayden, on the show and its Netflix revival — fired off a message to Twitter saying he did not take part in the pro-Trump attacks earlier this month, while sharing a video of one rioter lighting up a joint inside the Capitol.
“There are rumors circulating that I “stormed the capital,'” he tweeted. “Not true – though I would have been proud to share a smoke with this great Patriot!”
