Aubrey Plaza removed after MTV Movie Awards drama with Will Ferrell

A celebrity doing something to get free publicity? How shocking!


A celebrity doing something to get free publicity? How shocking!



Probably the most memorable moment of a forgettable MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night was Aubrey Plaza's fleeting appearance onstage with Will Ferrell. to be fair, that describes most of Ferrell's costars, too.

While accepting his Comedic Genius Award, Ferrell was stopped by the Parks and Recreation actress, who climbed onstage, tugged on the popcorn trophy just long enough for everyone to see her #ToDoList hashtag (the title of her upcoming movie), then calmly sit back down. The Hollywood Reporter says she was removed from the ceremony by the network, but the guerilla marketing damage was already done. Watch it below and be bored by the obvious fakery.

To further support the idea that Plaza was simply mugging for screen time, she tweeted "thanks for the advice @kanyewest went better than planned!". Ferrell told MTV “it was just a lot of liquor breath" backstage, Deadline.com says. It's not like Aubrey was getting her own award.
