Emma Watson Responds to Time’s Up Tattoo Mistake Album

Want a job spellchecking tattoos? Emma Watson is hiring!

The “Beauty and the Beast” star caused a bit of a kerfuffle Sunday night when she attended Vanity Fair’s Oscars afterparty sporting a temporary tattoo. It read “Times Up” to support the initiative against sexual harassment in the workplace.

Grammar nuts on Twitter reacted by pointing out the tattoo’s missing apostrophe. It should’ve read “Time’s Up.” Quite a few noted Watson graduated from Brown University with a degree in English literature.

Watson herself addressed the punctuation controversy:

Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes a must.

Of course, there were volunteers for the gig:

Missing apostrophes aside, Watson has been a vocal proponent of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. In February, she donated over $1 million to the U.K.’s Justice and Equality Fund, which fights against sexual harassment, assault and discrimination.

And in January, Watson attended the Golden Globes dressed in black and brought noted activist Marai Larasi as her guest.
