Over the weekend, an Atlanta-based teacher by the name of Patrice Brown went viral because of her photos. Her clothing choices in the classroom have sparked quite the debate, with some people saying that she’s being shamed only because she is shapely and it wouldn’t be an issue if she was thin, while others are saying that clothing that tight is never okay in an education setting.

Now it appears that #TeacherBae has sparked more than just a debate, and people are actually trying to take action. Atlanta Public Schools have since released a statement, saying:

“Atlanta Public Schools can confirm that Patrice Brown is a paraprofessional employed with the district. She was given guidance regarding the APS Employee Dress Code, the use of social media, and Georgia Code of Ethics for educators, and she has been cooperative in addressing her presence on social media.”

Brown temporarily made her Instagram page private, but it’s back to public and has amassed nearly 200,000 followers. “I just wish they would respect me and focus on the positive and what truly matters, which is educating the children of the future generations and providing and caring for them,” she told The Daily Dot.

Do you think people are just hating and projecting their own body insecurities, or do they have a point? Furthermore, even if they do have a point, do you agree with their choice to take action, even if their children aren’t involved?
