As George Takei might say, oh myyyyy. A poster for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2that was released today on Twitter featured (for those with Magic Eye abilities) the c-word over Jennifer Lawrence‘s face. After realizing the mishap, the poster was taken down but, of course nothing ever really dies on the internet.
Check out the offending photo below, which Variety kept a record of, and see if you can pick out where the questionable lettering is. If you need a hint: right below Lawrence’s eyes, in the cut for the 100. What a way to celebrate 100 days until the opening of the movie! With a big ol’ see you next Tuesday …

And here’s the official synopsis for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2:
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

THE designer behind The Hunger Games latest poster might be looking for a new job after accidentally printing the C-word across actress Jennifer Lawrence’s face.
A poster advertising the final film in the hugely popular movie franchise was released last week featuring Lawrence’s face with the words “100 days until The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two”.
However due to the unfortunate font layout a vulgar four-letter expletive is clearly visible.
The “unt” from “until” is placed inside a “0” which was formatted to look like a “C” making the word “C***” clearly visible.
Entertainment company Lionsgate swiftly deleted the poster from The Hunger Games official Twitter account, but not before fans spotted the error.
“#HungerGames just dropped the c-bomb. Brilliant!,” Rosalie Odtojan tweeted.
“Tell me that doesn’t say c***? Dear me,” Twitter user Lina wrote.
Some were unimpressed: “The new Hunger Games poster wasn’t well thought through,” wrote Charlee.
But others were more forgiving: “Over hearing about the Hunger Games graphic. Mistakes happen and evidently some ppl have way too much time on their hands,” Hunger Games Fans wrote.
Mockingjay Part 2 is the final chapter in The Hunger Games series and will be released on November 20.
The film stars Jennifer Lawrence, Australian actor Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson and will cover a final, dangerous mission to liberate citizens of war-torn Panem.
