Liberal comedian Chelsea Handler pushed a false narrative showcasing sexism in politics, though backlash from Twitter showed that people would not let her get away with it.

“Paul Ryan enforcing dress code in Speaker’s Lobby in the U.S. Capitol that bans women from showing their shoulders,” she tweeted Monday. “Welcome to Abu Dhabi.”

Her attempt at a poorly humorous joke held a major error that had been discredited for days.

While some agreed with Handler and decried it as backwards and sexist, many others pointed out that the rules in the Speaker’s Lobby were just as restrictive to men, and had nothing to do with Ryan’s tenure as speaker. Men are required to wear a tie and a jacket in the Speaker’s Lobby, as many attested to.

Here are the replies to Chelsea’s Tweet:
