June 1, 2012 - Tartan High School Senior Mike Stone made headlines when he asked adult film actress Megan Piper to prom in March. Now, Stone is gaining attention again for appearing on The Daily Show.
Last night, The Daily Show aired an episode that included a four-minute-long segment about Piper and Stone. “I was going to go there, be his prom date, and do all the normal prom stuff,” Piper told The Daily Show’s Jessica Williams. “I don’t plan on doing anything sexual with Mike or any of his friends.”
Tartan High School officials released a statement in March that said Stone would not be allowed to take Piper to the school’s prom.
Marjorie Holsten, a concerned parent, was also interviewed for the segment.
“I agree with the schools decision to not allow her to prom. Her profession is pornography,” Holsten said to Williams. “It’s the concept that she is a lady who, as a profession, takes off her clothes.”
