“The Drew Barrymore Show” is facing backlash after airing a wedding between a teacher and his alleged former physics student.
During Friday’s episode, Barrymore and crew surprised Dan and Selina, a couple that was forced to cancel their wedding plans due to COVID-19 with an on-air ceremony. The pair claimed that they “met several years ago in school through mutual friends,” and that they have now been together for seven years.
Once the clip was posted online, however, viewers began alleging that the bride and groom met when she was his 17-year-old student, which some believe explains the vague relationship history that they provided 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 on YouTube. “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.”
Neither “The Drew Barrymore Show” nor the newlywed couple have responded to allegations that their relationship began while Selina was underage.
