'Gorilla Glue Girl' May Sue Gorilla Glue After Using Their Product As Hairspray

A woman who put Gorilla Glue on her hair is now considering suing the company over their products’ “misleading” label, marking one of the most ridiculous lawsuits since a woman tried to sue McDonalds after spilling her own cup of hot coffee in her lap.

TikTok influencer Tessica Brown, who's 40 years old, went viral on social media for posting about the medical problems she faced after she ran out of hair product and instead used Gorilla Glue Spray Adhesive to help tamp down her frizz. She later tried to wash out the glue herself but to no avail, and eventually had to seek medical treatment after a month of trying to get the mess out on her own.

But according to TMZ, even the medical staff at the hospital haven’t been able to solve the problem, having tried to remove the glue with acetone only to wind up burning Brown’s scalp in the process. Videos of Brown explaining the problem and showing her being treated at the hospital have garnered more than millions of views on Instagram, with responses ranging from mockery over her obviously poor choices to concern and sympathy for this woman who clearly didn't understand that powerful, permanent adhesives meant to set up like liquid nails can't be used in place of temporary water-soluble hairspray.

Left with few good options to get the stuff out, Brown is now reportedly considering suing Gorilla Glue because there’s no explicit warning on their product label telling consumers not to use their craft glue in their hair. Because apparently, companies are now expected to think of every single ridiculous way any moron might misuse their product and include a specific warning against it in order to avoid liability, because grown adults can't be trusted to think it through themselves. 

“Our sources say Tessica’s hired an attorney and is weighing her legal options against Gorilla Glue,” TMZ reported. “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.”

The company has already issued a public statement on Brown’s situation, saying they are “very sorry to hear about the unfortunate incident that Miss Brown experienced using our Spray Adhesive on her hair,” but didn't take responsibility for a person trying to use their craft glue as hair gel. 

“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,” the company stated.

Meanwhile, Brown has raised more than $13,000 on GoFundMe to cover her medical treatment.

Here’s a pro-tip, for those inclined to smear their scalp with craft glue, stuff their mouths full of Tide Pods, or otherwise use products for anything other than their clearly intended design: just don’t.

And if you do make the mistake of humiliating yourself on social media in front of the entire world, don’t sue the company for your own idiocy.
