Aubrey Plaza Crashes Will Ferrell, Gets Kicked Out of the 2013 MTV Movie Awards
Last night at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, something happened that was surprising even by the usually-unpredictable ceremony’s standards. As Will Ferrell accepted his Comedic Genius Award,‘Parks and Recreation’ star Aubrey Plaza interrupted him, tried to steal away the award, and created her very own controversial Kanye Moment, getting kicked out of the show by MTV producers. Watch the drama unfold after the break!
As you’ll see in the video, Plaza (who scrawled a hashtag made out the title of her summer movie ‘The To Do List’ across her chest) awkwardly attempts to steal away the award from a visibly weirded-out Ferrell. The moment passes rather quickly, with Plaza walking away empty-handed. Actually, that’s inaccurate: the actress is holding a drink in one hand, which may explain the bizarre gesture. (The drink gets spilled along the way, another sad casualty of Plaza’s actions.)
After Plaza sits down, looking embarrassed, Ferrell says, “Aubrey Plaza, everyone. Just like we rehearsed it.” This bit of sarcasm leads one to believe that the moment was indeed unplanned; if it had been a staged gag, you’d think it would have went a little more smoothly, and maybe would have been funny instead of just plain odd.
After the show, MTV caught up with Ferrell, always a good sport, who had this to say about the incident:
Well I went up there and I started talking and Aubrey Plaza ran up onstage… And I think she wanted to tell me something important, but there was no message. It was just a lot of hot liquor breath. And, then, and a little bit of sweat. And then she ran away. But the ship sailed on.
Though Plaza returned to her seat, producers of the MTV Movie Awards reportedly asked the actress to leave the show and she obliged. Afterward, she tweeted:

What do you think? Was Plaza’s stage-crash part of a rehearsed comedic bit or did the actress simply imbibe a little too much and make the (unfortunate) decision on her own?
