Dynasty star Joan Collins tweeted on Tuesday to explain that she was not the same Joan Collins who was arrested a day prior in Dublin. Rather, it was an Irish politician by the same name.

United Left TD Joan Collins partook in a protest against installing water meters in south Dublin on Monday and was one of 13 participants arrested.

TD Collins responded on Twitter, saying she’d never “take an honour from a monarch,” referring to when the British soap star was made a dame in the Queen’s New Year’s honors list last year. 

The legislator admits that part about not wearing shoulder pads was a lie, though.
