Emma Watson Revealed Her New Tattoo In Support Of 'Time's Up'—But There Was A Glaring Error

Emma Watson showed up for the Oscars last night with a message. On her forearm, she displayed a temporary tattoo that reads, "Times Up." The media — both professional and social — jumped on the missing apostrophe instead of focusing on Watson's support of the movement to prevent sexual harassment, assault, and inequality in the workplace.

Watson, who has been in the global spotlight since appearing as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise at age 11, has spoken often about being sexualized at a young age. In addition to being appointed the U.N. Women's Goodwill ambassador, the actress has been an outspoken feminist and supporter of the #TimesUp and #MeToo movements.

Watson often uses Instagram to show her support for women around the world.
