QAnon mocked for saying ‘fake’ Derek Chauvin at sentencing looks ‘nothing like original’

'The real one has been brought by rogue deep state infiltrators to the Epstein/McAfee archipelago where he's been promoted to Chief of Police. He works on a case involving the Clintons,' a tweet joked

After former Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin was brought to court on Friday, June 25, to be sentenced for killing George Floyd, some QAnon theorists were quick to start the conspiracy theory that it was not the "original" disgraced ex-cop but a "fake" one because he looked different from the time he was arrested last year. 

Chauvin, who was convicted in April 2021 for second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter for his role in Floyd's death, appeared in Hennepin County Courthouse in Minneapolis for his sentence hearing. Chauvin's attire for his court appearance grabbed attention as the ex-cop opted for a grey suit and tie, with a shaved head. He also donned a blue medical mask. The visual of him looking different compared to the time he appeared for trial, left a number of people confused, which in turn provided material for QAnon to come up with a ton of conspiracy theories.

"Who the f**k is that? That's not the same guy from the trial," one of them said, while another asked, "How many Chauvins are there?" One more noted, "His hair color seems to change everytime you see him. Facial features are significantly different too. Do you think the brainwashed people see it." The next remarked, "This Chauvin looks NOTHING like the original." One QAnon member stated, "This is definitely not the same guy." One more commented, "Umm... this does not look like him. This is all a crock of (poop emoji)." Another added, "Derek did NOT commit suicide. We all know who killed him."



 



 

People who came across the screenshots could not help but mock QAnon for their outlandish theories. "Irrefutable that they switched out 'Chauvin'. The decoy allows the communists to save face. The real one has been brought by rogue deep state infiltrators to the Epstein/McAfee archipelago where he's been promoted to Chief of Police. He works on a case involving the Clintons," one of them said, while another quipped, "Dear Qanon, Derek Chauvin is an old man. His natural hair color is now gray, because he’s old. You can’t get hair dye in prison (not easily at least), ergo (Latin for therefore), Chauvin’s hair is now a different color."



 



 

Chauvin's promise to unveil mysterious info

When Chauvin was asked by the judge if he wanted to add anything before being whisked away to prison, during the hearing, he said, "At this time due to some additional legal matters at hand I'm not able to give a full statement at this time, but very briefly though I want to send my condolences to the Floyd family. There's going to be some other information in the future that would be of interest and I hope things will give you some peace of mind." 

The mysterious nature of his statement led many people to conclude that Chauvin might be trying to propagate some sort of a QAnon theory himself. "Derek Chauvin's statement at his sentencing hearing is as bizarre as any Qanon theory I have ever heard," one user said, while another noted, "Chauvin showing those bulls**t #Qanon tactics - 'information soon' my a**." One more said, "Is Derek Chauvin planning to bring Qanon into his federal trial or something?"
