Emma Watson jokes that she needs a “tattoo proofreader” after showing up with inked typo at Oscars

The actress and activist confirmed that the tattoo was only temporary

Emma Watson has joked that she’s looking to hire a “fake tattoo proofreader” after appearing at the Oscars 2018 with a grammatical error on her #TimesUp tattoo.

Her tattoo quickly gained attention across social media, with many pointing out that it lacked an apostrophe before the ‘S’. However, others rightfully pointed out that there is no apostrophe in the shortened hashtag version of the phrase – and that the Oxford-educated Watson was likely to be aware of this.

In good humour, Watson then took to Twitter to take back the conversation and joke with her followers: “Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes is a must.”

Naturally, many fans were keen to fill the position:

This comes after Watson raised over £1million for justice and equality as 190 British actresses signed a letter backing the #TimesUp movement earlier this year.

“It’s amazing because I have experienced the full spectrum [of harassment],” she said ahead of the Golden Globes last month, “but I think that for me, what is amazing is that my experiences are not unique, the experiences of my friends are not unique, the experiences of my colleagues are not unique. This issue is so systemic, structural.”

“The statistics around – even in the United Kingdom – women between the ages of 18 to 24, huge, huge, huge numbers say that they have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace.”

Watson continued to add: “You realise, if you speak to most women, they have an experience, they have a story. We’re just uncovering. We’re just scratching the surface of this, which is what’s really crazy.”
