Patrice Brown became a social media sensation after several blogs and media outlets published her images. The images that were posted eventually went viral and it were accompanied by the hashtag, “TeacherBae.”

Brown’s voluptuous figure, form-fitting dresses, and high heels caused a stir. Some parents believed that Brown’s fashions were too provocative to work at an elementary school. Others stood up for Brown as thousands commented on social media. The Atlanta Public Schools recently released a statement to Fox 5 regarding Brown and her controversial outfits.

“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,” the statement said.

Brown, who is a graduate of Albany State University, is working to become an educator. She deleted several of her more provocative photos before deciding to make her Instagram account private. She currently has over 125K followers on Instagram.

    As a young woman, I believe women need to have separate closets; one for professional attire and another for club attire. The two DO NOT need to overlap.

    • WhiteManFromTown

      With a shape like she got it don’t matter what she wears, women will be jealous because they bodies ain’t shit!!!

      • 26Sweetheart

        Right!!!!!! You’re absolutely right. YOU MAKE NO SENSE.

        • WhiteManFromTown

          I don’t give a fuck about you typing in all caps, you jealous, hating ass, potatoe shaped bitch. You wish your fucked up body had a shape. Stop hating bitch!!

          • 26Sweetheart

            Right. Even though you’ve never seen me….that’s what I am. Now Potato shaped bitch was funny. I’ll have to use that one day.

        • Samantha Derrick

          Actually! Her body is covered! It’s just the fact that she has breasts and a butt! Females who are not blessed will always hate on women who are blessed with beauty! I bet you the world that had this been a Taylor swift body ppl would say nothing! If she was obese people would say “you go girl! Body positive” but when a woman has feminine ideal features it’s a threat to other females! It’s a known psychological fact! Females who are insecure fear competition! You know darn well this woman could wear a burka and still be curvy! Her body is covered but what’s ticking ppl off is she is filling the dress well. FYI in what world is this a club dress? It’s a cap sleeve knee length dress you inbred! Many top designers make bodycon dresses

          • 26Sweetheart

            I wouldn’t care if top designers made g-string dresses. The dress is beautiful, she is beautiful and it’s beautiful on her. ONCE AGAIN, IT’S NOT PROFESSIONAL!!!!!!

          • Lee Hinds

            oh so she need a jacket to cover up her femininity, huh? i gaurantee you dont shape like that.. or you wudnt say these things

      • Lee Hinds

        the only one here with sence.. its pure jealousy.. what if all women shaped like her.. wouldnt hear a thing..

    • Ladylibra87

      Not one of her outfit were inappropriate people are condemning her because she has curves and that bullshit women are always tearing each other down because of their own insecurities

      • 26Sweetheart

        Yep that’s what it is. Everyone is jealous. You’re right.

    • Dee Dee

      I totally agree.

  • NoBettaDoBetta

    Public school and the bullsh**

  • mr_freez

    All these sistas looking to make her their champion. This woman is beautiful, no question. She is probably an amazing educator as well. This attire is not professional. I agree, no matter what she wears, her curves will show. Let’s be serious though, you are forcing the world to take notice of your curves. And for the women defending her, I wonder if you would feel the same way if your husband worked at the school, or if your husband attends more PTA meetings than he used to. That’s a Friday night, drinks at the bar dress, not a I am in charge of impressionable minds dress. I love the way this woman looks, but to be honest……its too much for any professional work environment. And sistas, stop being hypocrites. If she was white, yall would slut shame her to death.

    • Jay Anderson

      Forcing the world? So Michelle Obama is forcing the world too huh? Stop it. We all know it has nothing to do with the dress its all about her curves. If this was a slim woman NO ISSUE WHAT SO EVER

      • mr_freez

        michelle Obama doesnt wear stuff that tight, cut it out. Her skirts dont hug her like a sock.

        • mr_freez

          There’s a difference between clothes falling on a woman’s curves, and clothes stuck to a woman’s curves

          • Samantha Derrick

            Go look at pencil skirts from throughout the ages! It’s just as fitted! If you knew anything of clothing you would know that curvy girls if dressing baggy can look grumpy! The waist has to show, that can only happen with fitted styles you moron! Pretty sure the old Hollywood glam women wore the same thing.

        • Samantha Derrick

          Michelle was dragged for showing her manly arms in a sleepless dress! Don’t try it! Those tacky box dresses are not made for curvy gals

          • Guest

            There’s nothing manly about the FLOTUS!

    • britishrose

      THIS LADY IS NOT BEAUTIFUL nice shape maybe but ugly in face .. i dont know why blacks call every black chick beautiful .. she shows her body curves cause theres nothing else attractve on her duhhhhh

      • Mike Barnes

        I beg to differ! A guess beauty is in the eyes of the beholder?

      • Samantha Derrick

        She is beautiful and I’m not black! It’s whites who say any scraggly haired melanin deprived lizard lip Anglo sacan blonde with blue beety eyes is pretty

      • Kandie J Mack

        Yes, before you start..my back is for you, so kiss it!!
        But you have an avatar…so I guess you are beautiful! !
        No! You’re a hater, but if it were a whitey, snowbunny, etc..she’s beautiful. .right?
        As long as society continues to claim every white, BRITISH, etc..gir get and beautiful it’s fine.

    • Dee Dee

      Amen!!!

  • Jay Anderson

    All I see is a lot of hate and body shaming. Stop it ladies because yall are more focus on her assets than her dress. All yall see is her body.

  • Lovely

    If she’s teaching the students what they need to know it shouldn’t even be a topic of discussion. More power to her I think she looks quite nice. Parent teacher days migh be filled with thirsty fathers though lol

    • britishrose

      WRONG! SEEK COUNSELING

      • Mike Barnes

        Yes, I think you should!!!
        This story seems to be getting to you in a way that surely is not healthy. Make that appointment ASAP!!!

      • Lovely

        Nah you seem very upset about it I think you need to seek professional help. Maybe a therapist who will let you talk in all caps.

  • britishrose

    HAAAA WELL now look like all the thirsty dead beat daddies , bitter lesbians and undercover slut momas BACKED UP.. school board dealt her a dose of school reality SHE IS THE ONE BEING TRAINED .. at no time should a child have to think dressing slut like is a lesson in good behavior we have enough issues with kim kardashian and kylie them involking bad dress attire on kid .. lip gloss gucci bags and pencil skirts and stilletto weave and but inplants fake lashes , and bikinis dont have positive impact on children ! and having curves is no excuse ,, u would complain if a 300 lb teacher with 50DD breast size worK IN a mini skirt and push up BRA !! OR a man teacher wore his muscular chest exposed wth tight jeans ?”… wrong is just wrong…. TEACHERS ARE ROLE MODEL NOT PIN UP MODELS .. she knew the deal reason she was on twitter , she will get some paid interviews MAYBE? GOODMORNING AMERICA WILL NOT TOUCH IT .. cause parents will be outraged ..
    lets let it die . she wanted attention NOT A JOB ..
    AND if she was a good teacher huh sure!! u can be HOT AND GOOD RIGHT?? LMAO SMH

    • bewford willis

      “TEACHERS ARE ROLE MODEL NOT PIN UP MODELS”

      This is the best quote I’ve seen on this topic.

      • Lee Hinds

        so are firemen and police officers.. dont stop them from showing up in calendars tho..

        • bewford willis

          Are you suggesting 4th grade kids are viewing those calenders? Get out of here!!

    • Samantha Derrick

      You make no sense! There is so much wrong in what you said I dunno where to start! But I know your comment is based on jealousy not logic! You wanna talk about professional after you called her ugly and said blacks think anyone is beautiful! You forfeit your right to open your funky mouth to talk

  • Chris Green

    In my opinion, the only mistake she made was not making social media profiles private. Does anyone know how she has been a paraprofessional for the APS? If she has been one for a while, could we not argue that likely, her supervisor has seen her dressed like that and said nothing?
    I think the only reason APS gave her guidance is because she had made her pages public to the point that her pics got out and it mentioned that she worked for the school system. Oh course the media got it completely gone at first by spreading around that she was a teacher. The heavy scrunity is the reason she got a guidance from the APS. If it wasn’t for the culture of humiliation, this woudn’t be an issue at all. I conclude APS could have cared less until the scrunity arrived on their doorstep.

    • Chris Green

      I apologize for the grammar errors.

  • Nicholas

    It’s funny how many people follow television personalities and also let their children watch those same personalities yet when a pretty woman dresses nice and is teaching those same children then it is criticism. Pretty and smart is not a moment when folks should be acting surprised. Most of the folks complaining let their children see and hear much worse. To bad teachers didn’t look like that when I was in school. I might remember more of them. LOL

  • Dee Dee

    Beautiful young lady……beautiful clothes…., but totally not appropriate for a classroom. She is NOT a teacher. She’s an assistant to teachers and I wonder what they think about her attire.

  • VERNONBALMERJR

    It’s obvious she’s not satisfied with her image as a teacher. She should find time to do other things that will accommodate her desire to dress “sexy”, even if it’s blow up on the NET.

  • Kandie J Mack

    Well the freak nasty so called, hubbies and off and on daddies..will be getting out of bed to take their kid, to school now.
    LoL

  • Kandie J Mack

    Place a woman in the exact same outfits, that weigh around 100 lbs wet!!
    Then the response, is you show..look a nice ms.Jacobs..lol
    Stop!!!
    Just stop!!
    Her class isn’t lacking is it?
