Update: A rep for MTV says in a statement to Hollywood.com, “We can confirm that it was an unplanned moment and Aubrey was asked to leave following.”
Before: Kanye West isn’t the only infamous stage crasher anymore. Sunday night at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza pulled a similar stunt, crashing fellow funnyperson Will Ferrell‘s Comedic Genius Award acceptance speech and trying to take his award.
While Plaza did not succeed in stealing the award, she did attract attention to her upcoming film The To Do List, the title of whcih she had strategically written across her chest. After she got off the stage and sat back down in her seat, Ferrell made a joke that the event went down as they had rehearsed.
MTV has yet to confirm if this event was indeed planned, but it seems rather unlikely as Plaza was booted from the awards ceremony shortly after her stunt. MTV reports that the head of Viacom and MTV Executives escorted her “out of the venue.”
Ferrell was not too thrilled by the whole situation either. After the incident, backstage, he reportedly told MTV that he smelled “a lot of hot liquor breath” on Plaza during the incident. Yikes!
Monday morning, Plaza took to Twitter to make a joke about the incident. “thanks for the advice @kanyewest went better than planned! #mtvmovieawards #chrisbosh #thesecret,” she wrote.
