Netizens have mixed opinions on the couple’s wedding
The couple apparently met when the bride was still underage
Drew Barrymore gave her guests a surprise wedding, but some of the audience had issues with the way the couple met and criticized her show.
On Friday’s episode of “The Drew Barrymore Show,” the host and crew gave their guests Dan and Selina a surprise wedding. Barrymore secretly worked with Dan and his family to surprise Selina with a wedding after the couple was forced to push back their big day due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But some felt that the show should have featured a different couple instead because for them, their relationship started inappropriately since Selina was allegedly Dan’s underage student when they met.
“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,” one commented on the YouTube video in which Selina said they met through a mutual friend.
“Wow, ‘We met in school through mutual friends’ is a very creative way of saying your relationship started when he was your teacher in high school. Could CBS not find a couple whose relationship didn’t begin completely inappropriately? I just hope he’s more observant of his marriage vows than he was of the law when he started dating her,” another wrote.
“Ok but it wasn’t mutual friends he was her teacher when she was still in highschool,” another added.
Several users also commented on the surprise wedding on “The Drew Barrymore Show” on Twitter and they have mixed opinions about it. “Teachers can be wicked,” one said. Meanwhile, another netizen thought there was not an issue about their relationship and decision to get married because they are grown ups.
“What’s the problem? They are both grown adults. What difference does it make how they met?” the netizen commented.
“One wasn’t a grown adult when they started to date, the other exerted his authority. I think that’s the problem,” one replied.
Despite the backlash, some netizens support Barrymore and the couple. Several praised Dan as a Physics teacher. Many even said Dan was their favorite teacher and they were happy for him and his bride.
“Dan was the best science teacher I’ve ever had. He managed to make physics fun and did more than simply clock in and clock out, he inspired us and guided us. Went above and beyond for everyone, and I’m so happy to see this for them!! Wish them all the best!” Jordan Reid commented on the clip on YouTube.
“Thank you Drew!” another wrote.
“Wow! She really went above and beyond for this couple! Drew is amazing!” another commented praising the host.

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.
