“Keanu Reeves” made his appearance at the Maryland Bike Show, and graciously accepted a selfie request by a MAGA enthusiast—at least, that’s what a circle of Trump campaigners thought.
Photos of a man draped in the Confederate flag posing next to a male character with long black hair and a piercing gaze have gone viral. While sharers of the images have identified the familiar-looking guy as Hollywood icon Keanu Reeves, other internet users were quick to argue—that’s not Keanu Reeves.
“Maryland Bike Show this past weekend with Keanu,” the uploader wrote. “Apparently he restores antique bikes and is a Trump supporter!”
Fellow enthusiasts were evidently reeling with excitement. “I didn’t know Keanu Reeves is a Trump supporter,” one wrote. “Nothing like having Neo, John Wick on our side! Thanks Keanu.”
“Keanu Reeves is a Trump supporter,” another described. “I can go on with my day now!”
Keanu believe your eyes? Hairstyle and clothing choice aside, other internet users knew right away that the man was an impostor. Naturally, the memes ensued.
