As the coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc around the globe, the phrase “Marshall Law” started trending on Twitter early Monday (March 16) and some people actually believed that meant a new Eminem album was on its way.

They evidently failed to understand it was simply a misspelling of martial law, “the law administered by military forces that’s invoked by a government in an emergency when the civilian law enforcement agencies are unable to maintain public order and safety,” as defined by Merriam-Webster.

On Monday night, Slim Shady had to set the record straight, tweeting, “Sorry guys…Marshall Law: not a thing.”

The PSA was attached to a tweet from United States Senator Marco Rubio who apologized for contributing to the “Marshall Law” confusion.

“I apologize for the typo,” Rubio wrote. “I meant to type stupid rumors about martial law not marshall law. My bad.”

Even with the correction, the #MarshallLaw hashtag was being thrown around left and right and didn’t stop people from making jokes at Rubio’s expense. Some Twitter users even admitted they were fooled into thinking Em was dropping a new single.
