Minnesota teen Mike Stone can’t bring Megan Piper, or any other porn star, to prom, the school district said. Mike Stone won’t be able to attend his high school prom with Megan Piperor any other porn star, according to the North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District in Minnesota.
Stone was called to the principal’s office at Tartan Senior High School this week and told it was inappropriate to bring an adult film star to a high school dance, the Daily Dot reports.
However, the 18-year-old student escaped disciplinary action and was not in any trouble with the school, Jennifer McNeil, a representative for the school district, told The Huffington Post.
After sending nearly 600 Tweets, Stone had recently received responses from at least two porn stars who said they were willing to attend his prom as long as he provided money for airfare.
In a statement issued to parents and obtained by HuffPost, the North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District cited regulations to defend their decision to ban an adult film star from attending the event.
In short, the rules state that the district has the right to deny any person admission to a school-sponsored event if “the visit is not in the best interest of students, employees or the school district,” or if it “substantially disrupts the orderly operation of school or school activities,” McNeil said.
This will be the second time Piper misses out on attending a high school prom; she moved from Georgia to Kansas during her senior year of high school and couldn’t attend her own.
And although the 19-year-old porn star was disappointed about the decision, she acknowledged the school was acting in the best interests of the students.
“I’m not thrilled; I kind of wanted to go, but I understand,” Piper said in a telephone interview.
But Piper also said she was looking forward to meeting Stone’s parents, receiving a corsage, posing for pictures with his friends and doing “all the normal things kids would be doing for prom.”
According to the Daily Dot, Stone’s principal did bring the teen’s actions to the attention of his parents, who were “embarrassed” by the situation.
Piper said she wasn’t surprised by their reaction.
“I don’t know what I would think if I were them,” she said.
Despite rumors, the Tartan High School prom has not been canceled, McNeil confirmed. The dance will take place May 12 at the Landmark Center in St. Paul.
