Drew Barrymore Show Under Fire for Giving a Teacher and His Alleged Former Student a “Fairy Tale Wedding”

The Drew Barrymore Show has come under fire for giving a teacher and his alleged former student a “fairy tale wedding” during a recent broadcast, Perez Hilton reports. On Friday, host Drew Barrymore surprised a couple who had to cancel their wedding due to COVID-19 with a special, on-air ceremony, but after the video was posted, users filled the comments section with allegations that the bride and groom met when she was a 17-year-old student in his physics class.

Last week, Barrymore teamed up with Walmart+ to offer Selina, a frontline nurse, and Dan, a high school teacher, a dream wedding after their original ceremony was postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The couple explained that they “met several years ago in school through mutual friends,” and they have now been together for seven years.

However, after two videos — an interview with Barrymore and their full wedding ceremony — were posted to The Drew Barrymore‘s YouTube page, viewers began filling the comments with allegations that Dan and Selina declined to provide the full story of their relationship to producers. “It would be a great story if it was actually true. They met ‘in school’ because she was his student. The mutual friends was the physics class he taught,” wrote one commenter. “Could CBS not find a couple whose relationship didn’t begin completely inappropriately?” asked another. “I just hope he’s more observant of his marriage vows than he was of the law when he started dating her….”

Other commenters said that they had Dan as a physics teacher in high school, and they congratulated their former educator on his marriage.
