The magazine's cover features the text of U.S. constitution with the signature of John Hancock, but he signed the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus hilariously reacted to a flub made by Rolling Stone on the cover of its latest edition. The edition features the "Veep" star getting naked with the text of U.S. constitution written on her back. The text includes the signature of John Hancock. However, Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence, not the Constitution.
"Hancock signed Dec. of Independence NOT Constitution.Yet another Mike f**k-up.Dummy.#veep #crackexcuse @VeepHBO @mrmattwalsh cc@rollingstone," Julia wrote on Wednesday, April 9. In the post, the actress was referring to Mike McLintok, an unreliable staffer on "Veep" played by Matt Walsh.
Previously, some fans with keen eyes noticed the tattoo mistake and mentioned the magazine in some Twitter posts. "Pro tip: John Hancock didn't sign the Constitution," a fan wrote. Another reader commented, "How did Rolling Stone make such a huge blunder?"
The Constitution Center in Philadelphia also sent a tweet to the magazine regarding the signature. "George Washington to .@RollingStone - Thanks for the shout out but no Hancock here," they wrote.
In response to the tattoo mistake, a representative for Rolling Stone has released a comment. "The Declaration of the Independence is on the other side but we couldn't fit in all the signatures," Wenner Media Publicity Director Melissa Bruno said.
