Rob McElhenney wants the Pennsylvania teen who got kicked out of her prom on his show.

He extended an invitation via Twitter to Aniya Wolf to appear on “Always Sunny in Philadelphia” when they film the series here next month.

Wolf, who goes to Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, wore a suit to prom last week and was thrown out because the school claimed it violated a dress code. Her story made headlines throughout Pennsylvania, and McElhenney responded with this Tweet earlier this afternoon:

Wolf responded by asking “you are kidding right??” About 30 minutes later, he said he wasn’t.

Wolf told ABC 27 in Harrisburg she’s a lesbian who doesn’t like wearing girly clothes.

“I think my experience shouldn’t be any different than anyone else’s,” she said, “because of something I was born with.”

McElhenney isn’t the only Philadelphia luminary to offer his support. On Monday, Mayor Jim Kenney told Wolf he loved her suit.
