A girl kicked out of prom for wearing a suit is getting the chance of a lifetime.
The story of Pennsylvania high school student Aniya Wolf went viral last month when ABC’s WHTM-TV reported the teen was ejected from her prom for wearing a suit instead of a traditional dress.
“I was always more masculine. You wouldn’t catch me playing with any Barbie dolls, I’ll tell you that right now,” Wolf told the station.
Wolf was notified shortly before the dance that her choice of clothing would not be permitted, but with the suit already purchased, she decided to attend anyway – and was subsequently asked to leave.
When Rob McElhenney, creator and star of FXX’s hit show, Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia, caught wind of the story, he reached out to Wolf on Twitter, asking her to appear on his show (in the suit, natch!).
“Aniya, I love your suit. Would u like to wear it on Sunny?” McElhenney wrote.

Wolf responded in disbelief, but McElhenney was completely serious!
And yes, it’s happening.
“I liked the suit! I thought the suit was classy,” McElhenney told ET. “I feel like we need a little more class on the show, so we offered to have her come on the show and wear the suit.”
ET got the update while on set of Always Sunny last week. The cast will film with Wolf in Philadelphia at the end of June.
“We go to Philly in a couple weeks and we're going to meet her there, and we're really excited,” said Kaitlin Olson, “and I'm excited to see her suit!”
“Instead of just the kids in the school being able to see the suit, I’d like the whole nation to get to see it,” added McElhenney.
“We embrace everybody,” said Danny DeVito. “Doesn't matter if you're wearing a tuxedo, jockey shorts, underwear, you don't wear underwear... What's the big deal? We're people!”
