The Academy Awards managed to get through an entire ceremony without a cockup of monumental proportions ala envelope gate of last year, but Emma Watson seemed intent on spoiling the party when she rocked the red carpet with a grammatically incorrect tattoo!
A graduate of Brown University and a long-time advocate of gender equality, you'd think Emma Watson would be well-versed in apostrophe usage, but it appeared she was none the wiser when sporting a 'Time's Up' movement tattoo without one.
While her intentions were applauded, it wasn't long before eager-eyed social media users noticed that the tattoo artist had forgotten the apostrophe, which only served to make Watson look pretty silly- at least with social media users.
Luckily for Watson, the tattoo is temporary, but for someone who graduated with a degree in English literature at an Ivy League college, you'd have thought Watson would have noticed the glaring error before she attended such a global event.
Still, whether she failed to notice, or simply didn't care, the Grammar Police clearly felt the need to call her out, and Watson finally took to Twitter to respond to the controversy. With a trademark British wit, Watson tweeted, "Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes a must."
The UN Women Goodwill ambassador recently donated £1m to The Justice and Equality Fund, which was founded shortly after the #MeToo and Time's Up movements with the intention of promoting greater transparency and safety in workplaces operating in the entertainment industries.
The grammar faux pas certainly caused a few rolling eyes but was it all blown out of proportion when you consider the actual significance of the tattoo?
Let us know in the comment section below. And, please, no missing apostrophes...
