A woman who went viral for videos concerning her ill-advised decision to use Gorilla Glue Spray Adhesive as hair spray is reportedly considering a lawsuit against the Ohio-based company.

Tessica Brown, a Louisiana TikToker dubbed “Gorilla Glue Girl,” has also raised about $13,500 in her GoFundMe after she went viral last week for videos concerning her struggles with the Gorilla Glue she put in her hair after she ran out of a hair product that offers her hold.

“My hair has been like this for about a month now. It’s not by choice,” Brown starts a video that has racked up nearly 3 million views. “When I do my hair, I like to finish it off with a little ‘Göt2b Glued’ spray, you know, just to keep it in place. Well, I didn’t have anymore ‘Göt2b Glued’ spray, so I used this: Gorilla Glue spray. Bad, bad, bad idea.”

Brown then took photos of herself seeking medical treatment to remove the glue from her hair. Apparently, the remedies aren’t working and Brown is now “lawyering up,” TMZ reported Monday:

“Our sources say Tessica’s hired an attorney and is weighing her legal options against Gorilla Glue,” the report added. “We’re told the label on the product she used says do not use on eyes, skin or clothing … with no mention of hair, which Tessica feels is misleading.”

“I figured if I used the Gorilla Glue – you know, by the time I got home, I could have just washed it out,” Brown  reportedly told a Toronto radio show. “But when I tried to wash it out, it didn’t move.”

Gorilla Glue “said it was aware of her ‘unique situation’ and cautioned that its spray adhesive is considered permanent and designed for use on craft, home, auto or office projects to mount things such as paper, cardboard, wood, laminate and fabric,” reported. “The warning label also says ‘Do not swallow. Do not get in eyes, on skin, or on clothing.'”

“We are very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident that Miss Brown experienced using our Spray Adhesive on her hair,” a statement from the company said. “We are glad to see in her recent video that Miss Brown has received medical treatment from her local medical facility and wish her the best.”


Celebrities have weighed in on the situation, too. “The View” host Sunny Hostin linked the incident and the reaction to race.

So many are being dismissive of #gorillagluegirl. Given the history of how black women are targeted and still battle the pervasive belief that our natural hair is unprofessional, unkempt, or in some way ‘a statement’ pls show her some grace and understanding,” she wrote. 

Chance the Rapper said he was glad people were helping Brown get help.

“I’m glad [mother f***ers] actually supporting her thru this,” he wrote. “When I watched the video the second time it was hard to laugh cause I could tell shorty genuinely didn’t know she had put one of the worlds most powerful adhesives in her sh**. I hope she recovers well #gorillagluegirl.”
