Emma Watson Debuts New Time’s Up Tattoo… with a Typo
Emma Watson just took her support for the Time’s Up movement to the next level.
When the 27-year-old Harry Potter alum stepped on the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar After-Party this weekend, she proudly showed off some new ink on her right forearm that spelled out the words “Times Up,” because apparently, wearing a “Time’s Up” pin just wasn’t going to cut it.
The new ink was spotted on Emma’s right forearm and was written in cursive script, and while we do LOVE her devotion to the cause, there was just one MAJOR problem: The new tat had a typo!
Yup, as it turns out, the powerful phrase spelled out on her arm was missing one vital thing: an apostrophe — and fans, well… they noticed. Luckily, the tattoo was just temporary, which Emma confirmed via Twitter:
Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes a must.

So, A for effort? After all, if you thought wearing temporary tattoos was the only thing Emma has done to help the movement, you’d be wrong. Emma’s spoken out about the abuse of power and the injustices women face for quite some time. After the Time’s Up initiative was announced, Emma wrote on Instagram saying, “The clock’s been ticking on the abuse of power. I stand in solidarity with women across every industry to say #TIMESUP on abuse, harassment, and assault. #TIMESUP on oppression and marginalization. #TIMESUP on misrepresentation and underrepresentation.”
All of us are responsible for creating change, whatever industry you work in. We're asking everyone to help create a world we can be proud of – one that is safe, just and equal. Please join us and donate to the new Justice and Equality Fund, which will support frontline organisations that are working to end a culture where harassment and abuse are commonplace. Together we can spread our message, support the strong people of all genders who are taking such personal risks, and make sure that this is one of those watershed moments in history where things never go back to the way they were before. This is the moment we stand together and say. #TIMESUP. We hope you’ll stand with us.
Also, just last month, Emma donated approximately $1.4 million dollars to the UK’s Justice and Equality fund, so yeah, the temporary tat was just one of the many things she’s done to bring awareness to and help the movement. So we should probably give her a break on the whole apostrophe scandal… even if Hermione Granger wouldn’t.
