Jimmy Kimmel has had enough of teenagers asking celebrities to the prom.
You may remember last week high school student Jacob Staudenmaier hit the headlines after his video prom proposal for Emma Stone (which re-creates the opening scene from La La Land) went viral.
Emma Stone responded to the video, praising Staufenmaier but regretfully needing to decline, citing working in London as the main reason.
"Emma Stone has to pretend she's in London for two weeks," Kimmel joked.
"It's a cute story. I know, I get it, but it's also terrible and it has to be stopped. Listen, kid. Emma Stone, whether she's in London or not, doesn't want to go to the prom with you. At all. Like it's probably the last thing she wants to do and not because she's in London working. She doesn't want to go to a dance with you because she's 28, and 28-year-old people don't want to go on dates with 16-year-old children because it's creepy."
By way of analogy, Kimmel stated that were it Shia LaBeouf looking for a date with a sixteen year old, people suddenly wouldn't think the idea is so cute anymore.
"Why do we find it socially acceptable for a boy to ask an adult celebrity on a date? What if it was the other way around? What if Shailene Woodley. No, you know what, what if Shia LaBeouf showed up at a high school looking for a date? He'd be arrested, right? He'd be beaten and arrested, but when this kid asks Emma Stone it's adorable. We put him on GMA."
