"It wasn’t me" – that’s the message Jamiroquai’s lead singer Jay Kay sent out to the world. While he has been in lockdown in London, thousands of people thought he was the man with the horns that stormed the Capitol in Washington DC last week.
eNCA reports that the 1990s jazz-funk performer trended on social media during the unrest, as users noted the similarity of his signature look to a bare-chested rioter wearing a horned animal fur hat.
In his video message posted on Twitter, the 51-year-old Kay said "Now some of you may be thinkin’ you saw me in Washington last night. But I’m afraid I wasn’t with all those freaks."
Thousands of President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the Capitol in an attempt to overthrow the votes of the House of Representatives.
The Trump supporter who was shown to be standing on the dais of the House of Representatives has since been identified by US media as Jake Angeli, a prominent right wing supporter.
