Taylor Swift is selling merchandise to promote her recently released single “ME!” off her much-speculated-about, soon-to-be-released seventh album.

On a shirt that appears to no longer be available on Swift’s official store, some fans have spotted a typo.

The shirt has a misplaced apostrophe so it reads “Your’e the only one of you / Baby that’s the fun of you,” when it should read “You’re the only one of you / Baby that’s the fun of you.”

Many were dumbfounded.

Kiera Fitzgibbon, a life-long Swiftie, told INSIDER that she owns the shirt herself but didn’t notice that it had a typo until she saw it trending on Wednesday.

“I didn’t register it. I think the human eye just assumes everything should be correct” she told INSIDER. “I assumed that if this is a piece of merch that’s going out to millions of fans and it’s Taylor Swift – one of the biggest influences in pop culture right now – you’d think everything’s going to be fine.”

Others were quick to point out that the song this shirt is promoting features the lyrics, “Hey kids! Spelling is fun!” As Swifies pointed out during the height of “ME!” and TS 7 – the name fans have given Swift’s forthcoming album – speculation, the line is a reference to when she won her elementary school spelling bee.

People were quick to return to that line, making jokes about it.

A vocal few are looking for the silver lining, and think this could be yet another “easter egg” for Swift’s upcoming album for which she has yet to announce a name or release date.

Swift has yet to address the misprint. The typo most likely won’t have any bearing on TS7, but dedicated fans of the pop star know all too well that she likes to hide her clues where fans least suspect them.
