Please stop spreading stupid rumors about marshall law.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) March 16, 2020
We will continue to see closings & restrictions on hours of non-essential businesses in certain cities & states. But that is NOT marshall law.
He wrote “marshall law.”
This sparked plenty of people dunking on Rubio’s typo, including Andy Lassner, executive producer of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
It’s Martial, you moron.— andy lassner (@andylassner) March 16, 2020
This is false. The CEO of Marshalls sent me an email that said they will be closing early and cleaning. That’s the law, asshole.— Tony Posnanski (@tonyposnanski) March 16, 2020
Also it’s Martial Law.
A leading GOP official thinks "martial" law is spelled "marshall" law -that sums up the idiocy that is the Trump GOP (BTW "Marshall Law" Sounds like a TV show on the USA network from the 2000's )— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) March 16, 2020
If you can’t spell “martial law” correctly, senator, then maybe you should hold off on using the term “stupid” about anyone else.— Kevin M. Kruse (@KevinMKruse) March 16, 2020
Even Tay Zonday, of “Chocolate Rain” fame, got in on the action.
Marshall Law! 😂🤣😅 pic.twitter.com/LmgHbMG0jc— Tay Zonday (@TayZonday) March 16, 2020
Sadly, Twitter doesn’t offer an edit button. Instead of deleting the tweet and trying again, Rubio retweeted himself with a correction:
I apologize for the typo.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) March 16, 2020
I meant to type stupid rumors about marital law not marshall law
My bad https://t.co/vK5ED6M98r
He did it again. It’s “martial law,” not “marital law.”

His RT has 13.8 thousand replies. It’s an avalanche of piling on. Finally, Eminem (A.K.A. Marshall Mathers) showed up for a correction of his own.
Sorry guys… Marshall Law: not a thing. https://t.co/YKm1b5UGBE— Marshall Mathers (@Eminem) March 17, 2020
