Yesterday (March 16), Florida senator Marco Rubio took to Twitter in a bid to halt the spread of “completely false” information regarding the US going into Martial Law, which involves the military stepping in to suspend ordinary law.
However, a misspelling from Rubio resulted in the term ‘Marshall Law’ going viral – and some Eminem fans soon began to believe a new project was in the works.
Just heard Eminem dropped a new album “Marshall’s law” shit gotta be fire 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Clearing up the confusion, Mathers later posted to Twitter: “Sorry guys… Marshall Law: not a thing.” The rapper shared the message alongside a follow-up tweet from Rubio, who apologised for the typo. “My bad,” he wrote.
