Some on Twitter criticized the focus on Brown's clothes rather than her work as a teacher and others blamed a culture of sexualizing women.
"I just wish they would respect me and focus on the positive and what truly matters, which is educating the children of the future generations and providing and caring for them," Brown told The Daily Dot.
Brown's decision to make her Instagram account private may have been because og the focus on her attire rather than her job.
"Atlanta Public Schools can confirm that Patrice Brown is a paraprofessional employed with the district," Atlanta Public Schools said in a statement. "She was given guidance regarding the APS Employee Dress Code, the use of social media, and Georgia Code of Ethics for educators, and she has been cooperative in addressing her presence on social media."
