Emma Watson went a notch ahead in her support for the Time's Up movement until it all went horribly wrong for her. The actress made a powerful statement at the 2018 Oscars, debuting a new tattoo on her right forearm as she hit the red carpet at the Vanity Fair after-party.
Reading ‘Time’s Up’ in cursive font on her forearm, Watson proved her allegiance to the movement knows no bounds. But unfortunately, the Harry Potter star's new body art has been done without the correct punctuation. Watson appeared to be unaware that the tattoo had an apostrophe missing between the ‘e’ and the ‘s’.
Moreover, given her lack of body art anywhere else, people are speculating whether the tattoo is actually a real one or just a temporary impression. A closer inspection makes it look like the tattoo might be temporary, but the possibility of it being real is definitely one to be considered.
The tattoo comes weeks after Watson spearheaded a new UK arm of the Time's Up movement, aiming to fight the anti-discrimination battle in Britain. And what's more, she even donated £1million to the fund, which has been publicly supported by around 200 stars of film, TV, and stage, including Tom Hiddleston and Keira Knightley, who have each donated £10,000 to the cause.
However, even though Watson's intentions were pure and simple, the glaring error didn’t go unnoticed by fans who mocked Watson on Twitter over her “very poor grammar”. One user tweeted: “Love Emma Watson trying too hard to prove how much of a feminist she is with that Times Up tattoo and missing the apostrophe.”
