Emma Watson’s Oscar night political stunt goes embarrassingly wrong with glaring tattoo ‘typo’

If you’re going to make a political statement, doing a quick spell check isn’t a bad idea.

Actress Emma Watson sought to raise awareness for Hollywood’s campaign against sexual abuse at Sunday’s 90th Academy Awards–but instead raised eyebrows when the phrase “Time’s Up” tattooed on her arm revealed a grammatical error from English 101.

The “Harry Potter” star bedazzled onlookers with a flowing black dress and gold jewelry set as she entered an Oscar party hosted by Vanity Fair.

On her arm, Watson sported a tattoo consisting of just two words: “Time’s Up.” But a closer look at the writing revealed a jarring grammatical error.

“Times Up,” the tattoo read, notably missing the apostrophe after the word “Time.”

Watson has been a vocal proponent of the “Time’s Up” and “#MeToo movements, which began after a report on the alleged sexual misconduct of producer Harvey Weinstein led to a torrent of accusations against other prominent men in entertainment, including actor Kevin Spacey and NBC host Matt Lauer.

The good news for Watson: she won’t have to live with the testament to her editing deficiencies forever. The tattoo was fake, as the celebrity noted in a Monday tweet in which she poked fun at her mishap.

Watson was doubly roasted on Twitter, first for not even being able to spell the name of her political cause correctly and then for not having the determination to get a real tattoo.
