When you think of a high school prom, porn stars aren't usually the first thing that come to mind. However, high school senior Mike Stone decided to ask 19-year-old Megan Piper (along with roughly 600 other porn stars) to be his date to prom, and amazingly she said "yes."
However, the dream date was cut short when the high school decided that allowing a porn star to attend prom (despite nearly being the same age as the students) probably wasn't the best idea. In an unlikely turn of events, though, the student's mother has evidently had a change of heart about the whole situation and now supports it.
The mother added, however, "He'll be coming home alone, though, when it's over."
Of course, just because the mother is now on board doesn't necessarily mean the school will change its mind, will it? Originally, their reasoning for denying Megan Piper access to the prom was due to the fact that her visit would not be "in the best interest of the students." Will the school, like Mike Stone's mother, have a change of heart?
It seems unlikely at this point, but the story has been gaining a lot of attention. The situation has become a trending topic on Twitter, and an online petition was even created. Megan Piper even expressed her dismay with the decision, mainly because she had been unable to attend her senior prom. Even if they don't change their mind, Stone has said that he will throw a shindig of his own.
While it is not uncommon for teens to ask celebrities to events (and for them to be permitted to attend), this is slightly different and would certainly send the wrong message to kids in lower grades. What do you think of the mother's change of heart? Would you allow your son to go to prom with a porn star?
