Julia Louis-Dreyfus is featured on the cover of the April 11 issue of Rolling Stone magazine, unfortunately the focus has turned to a major mistake the magazine made.
The cover shows the Veep star naked, with the preamble to the Constitution inked across her back. The mistake comes at the very end and right above her bare behind, which features a signature of John Hancock, reports the New York Daily News.
The problem is that while Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence, he did not sign the Constitution.
People on Twitter noticed the glaring error fairly quickly, with writer/editor Justin Green noting, "Pro tip: John Hancock didn't sign the Constitution," while another wrote, "How did Rolling Stone make such a huge blunder?"
As people began to comment, the actress herself took to Twitter to add her own joke, writing: "Hancock signed Dec. of Independence NOT Constitution. Yet another Mike f**k-up. Dummy."
Wenner Media Publicity Director Melissa Bruno tried to explain away the mistake as being with the tattoo image and not the magazine's fact checking. "The Declaration of the [sic] Independence is on the other side but we couldn't fit in all the signatures."
