Actress Emma Watson has taken to Twitter to ask for ‘help’ after people called her out on her grammatically incorrect tattoo at the Oscars. 

Over the past year Emma Watson has acknowledged her “white privilege” in a powerful letter, supported former BBC editor Carrie Gracie in her fight for equal pay and launched an Instagram account to back sustainable fashion. So is it any wonder that we often find ourselves asking the question: “What would Emma Watson do?”

And, as it turns out there isn’t a situation the critically acclaimed actress can’t handle. After walking the red carpet at the Oscars with a grammatically incorrect (and fake) Time’s Up tattoo, Watson, of course, handled the mishap with aplomb.

Taking to Twitter the actress posted: “Fake tattoo proofreading position available. Experience with apostrophes a must.”

And people have, of course, responded with the same humour. 

“I would like to take you up on this job opportunity? I have a masters in proofreadery graduated with a first from Tattoo Uni top of my class,” one user posted. 

“*Quits job as a book editor to read fake tattoos for Emma Watson, has ‘No Ragrets’*,” another wrote. 

Earlier this year, the Beauty and the Beast actress donated £1 million ($1.4 million) to the Justice and Equality Fund – a UK-based initiative set up to fight against sexual harassment, assault and discrimination. 

Watson, you’re the best.
