0 14

A male teacher has social media users riled up after sharing a video of his students taking out his braids. Jaq Lee, as his TikTok bio states, first shared the interaction with his female students during a livestream last week Friday (May 3).

Earlier this week, he addressed the mixed feedback, which includes accusations of inappropriateness. It appears that he’s a middle school science teacher.

What The Teacher Said About Viral Braids Video

The livestream showed female students using combs and fingers to remove their teacher’s braids. It seemingly started with two girls, then progressed to about five max.

The science teacher explained that he had a hair appointment after school and asked four to five of his “best friends” to help with his braids during the last 10 minutes before dismissal.

So, why didn’t he take it out the night before? Jaq said the school had an event that Friday morning, which required him to be camera-ready. As for why the students weren’t “working,” Lee said he had given them some free time because of their great performance throughout the week.

Some of the girls who helped with his hair were from his class, while others got excused from other classes. However, that only applied to students who had completed all their work and had “good behavior” in those other classes.

“My next point I’d like to make is if I was a female teacher, those people wouldn’t be in the comments saying, ‘Oh, this is weird, this is inappropriate.’ Because me personally, I know think there’s anything weird about this. People are saying ‘That’s too intimate.’ To me, it’s literally just hair. It doesn’t have to be weird. Some people have never had cool teachers and it shows.”

Beyond the braids, Jaq Lee explained that part of being an “effective” teacher is building “authentic relationships” with his students. He aims to make them feel he cares about them beyond the schoolwork.

“I take the time to get to know my students outside of academics because caring for the whole child is what’s important,” the teacher said.

He claimed his students see him as a big brother or father figure. Additionally, the parents of most of his students and his school administration allegedly follow him on social media and see his teacher-driven content. The middle school teacher said the braids situation was just “another wholesome moment” he was able to capture on camera.

Students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. Teaching is a work of heart. Comment your thoughts #teacher #teachersoftiktok #teacherproblems #millenialsoftiktok #middleschool

Teacher Continues Clapping Back At Critics

In his initial response video above, Jaq Lee explained that he doesn’t want his own kids. Therefore, his students feel like they’re his children. Also, he shared that he strives to be the teacher he wished he had been as a young person.

Still, the mixed reactions continue to pour in. So, one day after his first clapback, he released an eight-minute video clearing comments.

If you’re wondering, the teacher revealed that he WOULD be okay with his child interacting with a teacher like himself in the same way.

“We as a people have to abandon this idea of sexual intimacy being tied with getting your hair done,” the teacher said. Adding, “Y’all can see there’s nothing suggestive going on, it’s like family, it’s like community…this is simply a wholesome, innocent community-oriented activity.”

Lil Durk’s Ex-Finacée Says Teacher Was Inappropriate

Meanwhile, Lil Durk’s ex went viral after slamming the teacher’s interactions as inappropriate. She also responded to another X user who explained her own close relationship with a former teacher.

“I’m glad that that was something that worked out for you, but that could’ve easily went left. As a parent you have to do what’s in your child’s best interest. It’s best to be preventative because once it happens, it’s nothing you can do to erase it,” she said.
