Emma Watson has gamely joined the many armchair copy editors commenting on her new feminist tattoo’s grammatical error. The actress and Time’s Up advocate debuted “ink” supporting the anti-harassment movement at the Vanity Fair Oscars party on Sunday night (March 4).
But, missing a key apostrophe, the large “Times Up” in script on her right inner forearm arm was met by criticism. Thank goodness it’s not a mistake that will last a lifetime – a closer look revealed the edge’s of the tat’s clear sticker, and a message from Watson sealed the deal.
“Fake tattoo proofreading position available,” the Brown University grad tweeted Monday afternoon after the error went viral. “Experience with apostrophes a must.” By Tuesday morning, the 27-year-old’s tweet had received nearly 100,000 likes and scores of fake applications for the position. – Los Angeles Times/Tribune News Service
