Teacher messages former student ‘are you 21 yet?’ sparking social media debate

A woman sparked concerns from TikTok users after she revealed that her former history teacher messaged her asking if she was '21 yet' so he could take her out for drinks.

Makayla (@makaylam.ller) posted a video with the caption, “not my 9th-grade fantasy coming true" where she reveals that her 'hot' former history teacher had sent her a Twitter direct message.

It reads: "Hi Makayla, hope life has been treating you well after graduation. just curious to see if you’re 21 yet and interested in grabbing a few drinks with a former hot history teacher? Hope to hear back from you.”

The viral clip, which has received 2.1 million views and 400,000 likes since it was posted in March, sparked a huge debate in the comments section as some users encouraged her to go out with him – but others saw it as a red flag.

One commenter said: "Girl, please don’t do it. You were his student and a child when he knew you, this is major red flag.”

Another wrote: "Girl, NO. I was a teacher and the thought of dating a former student is sickening. As a teacher, this makes my skin crawl."

In follow-up videos, Makayla shares the backstory of how the pair met and assures people that she didn't go for drinks with him – but she is hoping for dinner plans.

She said: "So basically, he was my student teacher back when I was in high school for like a really short period of time, and the first day that he was there, I honestly thought he was a new student like he was not giving teacher vibes at all.

“I didn’t really start talking to him until the last day that he was there and I asked him if he had a Twitter account because all the teachers at my school used Twitter to like, update the students and sh*t.

"So, I asked him if he had a Twitter, and he’s like ‘no, but I can make one’ and I was like alright, bet. He made a Twitter account and followed me and a whole bunch of the other students there.

“He was never like weird to me or gave me weird vibes or anything like that, I just didn’t really look at him as a teacher because he never taught or give me that vibe.

“I feel like I need to address the situation. I am 20, he’s 27, I did confirm that. I did reply to him, we exchanged numbers and we’ve been texting, but it’s so f**king boring.

"Like I was gonna post a screenshot, but it’s like boring as f*ck. It really is. I don’t plan on having any sort of relationship with this man, I just couldn’t.

"I could never have any sort of relationship with a former teacher like that. He is hot as fuck though, and I did look him up on Facebook, just to make sure he wasn’t in a whole a** marriage and had kids, and I didn’t find anything. So hopefully, the next update will be me at dinner with him.”
