Florida congressman Marco Rubio became a Twitter punching bag yesterday when trying to assure his followers that coronavirus shutdowns are not the same as martial law. Just one problem.

He wrote “marshall law.”

This sparked plenty of people dunking on Rubio’s typo, including Andy Lassner, executive producer of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Even Tay Zonday, of “Chocolate Rain” fame, got in on the action.

Sadly, Twitter doesn’t offer an edit button. Instead of deleting the tweet and trying again, Rubio retweeted himself with a correction:

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.
